I have 3 dogs and 4 cats. We treat our animals with advantage as well as treat our yard twice a year but still have had infestations several times. I think I have finally found a great combination to get rid of and keep fleas out of my house. To get rid of a current iinfestation: 1. Wash animals with Dawn, blue original only. Ithe kills fleas and also removes dirt so much better than dog shampoo. I did not wash my cats. Great info in this post. Before introducing animals back into house. 2. Make a mixture of borax and salt (borax weakens fleas shell and salt dries them out) sprinkle all over carpet and under any upholstery cushions or on top. ( made shaker from mason jar with holes in lid) Let sit for 6 to 24hours. Vacuum up. 3. wash all linens (hot water, I also add borax and vinegar, and hot dryer) 4. Make mixture to of apple cider vinegar ( white does not work) and water in spray bottle and spray all fabrics you are unable to wash. ( I do it once a week ) fleas do not like the taste/ smell. 4. Treat animals with advantage (cheap kind can burn skin and cause horrible reactions and do not work.... be sure to NEVER usedog's flea med on a cat, it affects the cats nervous system and can kill them fast. I in fact keeps dogs from cats for 24 hours to be safe. We had a horrible scare that was an accident with a cat of ours. Make sure it's a few hours after bath to make sure it stays on skin. 5. Capstar is a must also. Same with flea combing animals. 6. Treat lawn with triazicide (make sure watered and keep animals from lawn for 24hours for safety)

If you have a cat, then you eventually can face the problem of cat fleas. In this situation many people ask: “Can I get fleas from my cat?” Killing fleas on cats is rather time-consuming and a bit complicated, but every cat owner should know how to get rid of cat fleas.Almost in all cases of getting rid of fleas on cats you should use special insecticides which kill fleas on cats or keep fleas off your pet due to their strong smell. In some cases, when there are few fleas on your cat, you can bathe the animal. Fleas do not tolerate water and tend to move to those parts of the animal’s body which remain dry. Usually it is your cat’s head; there you can catch fleas with your hands. This method is one of the natural ways to get fleas off a cat. This approach is effective only when the cat has just a few fleas, and they did not have time to multiply.
