Hey guys,

We got fleas!!!! We have 2 dogs and 1 cat. We live in a two story home with carpet and linoleum.. I used frontline on all 3 animals, bombed the house, wash the dogs 2/3 times a week flea comb them daily…and we still have fleas. I also treated the yard 2x and washed their bedding and vacuumed a lot. I need you to hook me up with what I need to get rid of them…thanks.

We recently bought and moved into a house that was infested with fleas. We have a dog which we treat with frontline. We have been vacuuming the house every day for 3 months now. In addition we have had a exterminator out to spray twice. I have also sprayed (peremthryn and precor) myself a couple times in the 3 month span. The problem has definitely gotten better and we thought we had finally rid the house of the issue. That was until we found a flea on our dog yesterday. This was the first one we have seen in 3 weeks. I gave him a capstar and washed all his bedding. Should I be concerned that we are still infested?

Hello,

We have been dealing with a flea problem with our small dog and in our house for over 3 weeks. We first discovered several fleas on her over three weeks ago – I can’t be quite sure how long she had them. We immediately gave our dog a bath in flea shampoo but still saw fleas return to her immediately. We haven’t dealt with this before so weren’t sure how to handle and thought that would be enough – boy we were wrong!

Hi my dog has fleas and my house is infested. We have treated the dog and treated the house on our own with a spray. We sprayed all of our hardwood floors. I needed to know if fleas live in clothes, so in part of my treatment should I wash all of them? And do they live in beds? If yes how do I rid them of my mattress? I am the only one in the house getting bit my husband isn’t. Our big issue is also that we are moving in 4 weeks and we are not bringing the dog,but we want to make sure we don’t bring the fleas. Will fleas move with us when we pack our things? We are only bringing the bed, clothes, & electronics? If yes should we pre-treat the new house before moving to be proactive? Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance for your help.

To Whom It May Concern,

 My husband and I recently uthenized our dog and two weeks later we start getting bites and come to the realization that we have fleas.

I had no idea that our dog had fleas, I think that she did not have fleas as we just moved into a new house a year ago and I’m thinking the fleas were here previously none the less we now have fleas.

Our cat always used to walk on our oriental rugs and would sit on the furniture.  Now, he only will walk on the hard wood floors and avoids the carpet and never sits on the furniture any more.  Why all of a sudden is he doing this? He is an older male cat that we took in as a stray 6 yrs ago.

If you have dogs and they have fleas, do the fleas stay on the dogs rather then jumping off? I do not have a dog but my sister came by with hers and now I have fleas. She claims that there are no fleas in her home and she never gets bitten but we have been under attack. I checked two of her dogs and found on one the black droppings of the fleas. I am concerned even if she comes over that there could be fleas on her as well and she will re-infect my home, can that happen as well.

I just finished watching your excellent video and reading your article about FLEAS! Oh my … they are persistent critters, aren’t they? Here’s my problem:

1 small dog who is primarily inside, but takes walks and goes out in the back yard 1 stray young cat who mostly lives under front porch (among leaves and other debris that have blown under there — not readily accessible — meaning under the porch AND the cat!

Would a first frost kill off all fleas? We have a 10 year old cat that has never been outside. But we now have a gated backyard she will be able to go outside without any fear of losing her.

My husband entered a home that was flea infested. Not knowing, got back into his car. As we were driving away I noticed them all over him. Before entering our own home, he stripped down and we threw out his clothes and shoes. So, What is the best way to kill the fleas inside the car? And should we treat our own home too?

We have lived in the same house for almost a decade. We have never had any pets and haven’t even had anyone else’s pets in our home recently (within at least 6 months or more). Just in the last 24 hours I’ve started seeing quite a few fleas on my feet and lower legs (summer clothes…shorts and no shoes). And these are definitely inside the house; not brought in from outside. I would have thought without pets the possibility of getting a fleas infestation inside our home would be remote at best. And they’ve appeared so suddenly. Have never noticed any before about 24 hours ago. We keep a relatively clean house (vacumning about once a week usually). So ultimately I wanted to know if this is a situation you are familiar with and how common (or uncommon) is it?

I just moved into a place that had 6 big dogs. Should I remove the carpets? My little dog is showing signs of getting bit by fleas.

I’m not sure what removing the carpets will do but if you’re interested in getting rid of the fleas, you’ll need to treat using one of the methods explained in our FLEA CONTROL ARTICLE. As you’ll learn, it only takes one flea to lay hundreds of eggs and your new rugs will be infested just like the existing ones if you don’t treat. That means your options are either leave the existing rugs and treat them or replace the existing rugs and treat the new ones before they get infested.
Based on these two scenarios, I suggest you install several FLEA TRAPS along with our ONCE A YEAR TREATMENT. In my experience, this has proven to be the most effective and easiest approach to most any flea problem that includes a house with rugs.
Here are direct links to the information and products listed above:

Me and my boyfriend have a flea problem which we think started in summer. We just assumed it was the usual summer insects since we’re both prone to being bitten perhaps because we are pale, and so we waited it out.
We are trying to treat the house, the problem is that we live in rented accommodation and our house is small.
We cannot deflea the garden because they are shared gardens, we have nowhere to move our furniture to, the carpets don’t belong to us so we have to be careful with them.
To complicate matters further there is a cat involved which also doesn’t belong to us!
He doesn’t appear to have problems with fleas but we don’t know if he’s being treated for fleas or not. We know he belongs to someone because he used to have a tatty collar which was then replaced with a new one and even though he now has no collar he still looks well fed (we don’t feed him)
So we either make sure he can’t come in anymore (which is difficult if we need to air the house because he comes through our downstairs window), or we treat the house with flea treatments which don’t risk harm to the cat (I’ve heard flea bombs are risky) and try to find some way of defleaing him which won’t harm him if he’s already being given maximum flea protection (I’ve heard too much flea treatment on a cat is harmful)
