The best thing that I have found ( & I'm in my 50's ) is to
vacuum the carpeted floors & sweep the other floors EVERY
Day. Then be sure to remove & throw the vacuum bag out,
every day ( to get rid of the fleas & eggs you've gotton out
of the carpet ). All pets that come inside ( cats & dogs )
need to be treated with a safe flea drop purchased from a
Vet. Not the crappy stuff that Wal-Mart sells, that stuff
has killed a lot of cats & kittens because it's way too
strong! Then if you can locate DE powder ( usually available
at a health food store ) that can be used safely inside of
the house. Just don't inhale the dust when applying it
around the base boards, etc. I'm not sure how to spell the
full name for DE, so hopefully someone else here can give
that information to you. Definately do some research on how
to properly apply it before using it though, just to be
safe. And also remember that if you have fleas outside you
need to address getting rid of them as well, because they
can come inside on humans as well ( pant legs, etc.) Good
