I tried flea baths, house sprays, everything for my cat. The fleas had infested my house by that point. The only thing that worked was Advantage for cats or dogs, you can get it at the Vet or order it on Ebay.

advantage works great.... but before the days of advantage, my mom used to do this trick for in the house.

get a disposable aluminum pan from the grocery store and fill it about half way with soapy water. then put a desk lamp next to it with the light shining in the water.... the fleas are attracted to the bright light and reflection of the pan so they jump in the water and can't get away! dump the flea water daily... that should help clear it up while the advantage is doing it's thing on the pets!

are you trying to get rid of them around the house or on your pet?

If around the house, do you have carpet or wood or tile flooring?

I use advantage for my cat and it does great. You don't always have to get it from a vet we have a feed store that sells it.

I bought something from walmart HARTZ it is a oil type that you can put on your pet. It was only around $5 and worked great...give it a try!!

Once you get rid of the fleas, try adding a little garlic (not powder) to your pets' food. I've never done this--my area's too cold for fleas to thrive--but my friend who raised beagles always did it and said it kept them off her dogs.
