I found a 3 mo old kitten living in my siding on Sunday oct 16. I brought the cat inside and washed it with dawn dish soap. I kept finding little grains in its fur and thought it was from the kitty litter until i found a flee… and another one so I promptly bought hartz flee shampoo and washed her well. I found more flea on her face and near her eyes, so I washed her face again and saw some flea fall off on to the floor and promptly killed them. I haven’t had her to long and I do have a spray I used in her hiding spots. I have 1 or 2 bites on my arms from yesterday and most of the fleas seem to be gone now. What else should I do and will I have a high chance of an infest. I am currently vacuuming washing and drying anything the kitten was on. Please let me know if I should take any other steps. Thank you, Jason

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:

I have used 20 mule team borax for flea control and was wondering why it didn’t work for me. My friends said it cured their problem but I haven’t been that lucky. Is there something you should do when using it?

Do you know if high humidity will help fleas? I’m thinking my basement, which is always really moist, is an ideal place for fleas to be reproducing and since we seem to get a flea problem there each summer, I’m thinking the humidity might be the problem. Do you know if reducing the humidity will help stop the fleas from multiplying so much?
