    1 Vacuum everywhere and I mean everywhere. Vacuum on under and behind all furniture. Vacuum all the floors, doesn’t matter if it doesn’t have a carpet Vacuum it. This helps get the eggs.
    2. Take the family on a holiday for a couple of days and flea bomb that house. Don’t get the kind bought in grocery store or your local Wal-mart. Go to a specialty pet supply store, Pet Supplies Plus, PetsMart, and they should be able to point you to some good brands.
    3. Repeat step one.
    This worked for me.

    My family went through this too. It has to be done professionally. Look in the yellow pages of the phone book. Get two or three free estimates for exterminators. Ask for a contract that states exactly what they will be doing for you such as spraying…..rugs, furniture bottoms, along the baseboards, etc. AND that they will return in a few weeks to kill the new hatched fleas.
    By now the fleas are everywhere, even in your bedrooms. But good news…..the two sprayings got rid of the fleas.
