    cedar chips under your furniture will help to repel the fleas.
    Some say use a light close to the floor and put a shallow pan of dish soap under the light at night. Fleas are attracted to heat.
    Vacuum DAILY!!! fleas lay eggs and hatch out every 10-14 days. They feed of us and our pets but live and breed in the carpet. If canister vac, try to empty it “away” from the house or SEALING the garbage bag right after you empty the vacuum or the fleas will jump or crawl right back out, and even though it’s a small hole on a bag vac, they can still get back out.
    As long as your dog is in and out and you do not treat the yard and the dog along with the carpets, you will not be able to get rid of them.

    Don’t waste your time & money using store bought products. You need to call Terminix or Orkin to come to your home to spray inside & out. He needs to spray inside to kill the eggs that will hatch, leaving you with even more fleas. The fleas are getting a free ride on you & anyone else who is entering your home. It’s not that expensive to have an exterminator come to your home & he can also set up a schedule for coming back to spray every three months, (the norm) to respray. The spray has a slight smell to it, but nothing that would drive you out of the house.
