    What is the best way to get fleas out of a house once and for all?

    I have a yard, medium sized house and multiple animals.  It is a challenge I constantly struggle with.

    You can go to Home Depo. The store has many pesticides that you can choose for your fumigation. Liquid is better because you mix the pesticide with water. You follow  the instructios on the bottle.  You need to buy a big bottle with the spray hose attached to the big plastic empty bottle. You need to buy two different kind of pesticides because there are different kinds of bugs for the indoors and outdoors. You ask at the Home Depo sales person to help you find the correct because you have pets. Sometimes, it is better to pay an expert to fumigate.

    I have tried everything! But there are two things that seem to work best. Advantage flea treatment for dogs or cats and glue traps. The glue traps work for spiders, scorpions, roaches and all manner of crawling bugs. But most especially for fleas! I have attached a photo and the flea trap night light is available from Amazon.com
    It includes a night light and a round, refillable glue pad. In just a few days, you will find hundreds of fleas have jumped into the trap!

      We have had a huge breakout of fleas this Spring! We are also adding Demon WP to spray the carpet and yard with. My traps are catching fleas like crazy, but the eggs are hatching too quickly to keep up! More traps needed!!!

    We once had seven cats, and since it's always warm in Hawaii, the flea problem was awful.  I solved it by putting powdered Brewer's Yeast in the cats' milk.
