May I recommend a flea preventative called Bravecto it last three months (usually runs $60) but it’ll definitely work better than “coconut oil”, “vinegar”, “flea shampoo” and most definitely flea bombs. 💀

Besides just the stigma of having fleas inside of the home, as I’ve personally experienced, many people (veterinarians included) believe that fleas do not attack humans. Hence why it is a poor excuse, albeit a valid one.

OP - You have to treat the dogs with a real and effective flea treatment from your Vet, re-treat the house, treat your car, and wash your clothes and bedding in hot water all in the same time frame to avoid re-infestation.

People who cannot take care of their pets really should reconsider what they are doing.

Fleas are not always a product of poor pet ownership, you pompous ass... plenty of households get fleas regardless of their standard of cleanliness. Same goes for bed bugs and lice!

My family suffered at the hands of fleas for almost two years. No product was strong enough on its own. We basically had to go nuclear. We used four different products on the lawn outside. Used gas, boric acid, diatomaceous earth, and several kinds of spray on the inside. I highly recommend buying permethrin from a pest control website and making your own bug spray out of it. It is one of the common chemicals used in the bug sprays bought at regular stores. I also recommend buying generic nitenpyram (the ingredient used in the flea pills, like Capstar, bought at pet stores) off of eBay or other sites. Both of these tips will greatly reduce the stress on your wallet. Finally, if all else fails in keeping the vermin off of you and your kin, try bleach baths. Other things (soaps, sprays, etc.) that people have tried and may work include ingredients such as eucalyptus, green tea leaf, and anything citronella. Good luck!

i hope op sees this comment. I had fleas in my old apartment. Flea bombs,treatments for the cats,sprays,oils ect didnt work.

The way to get rid of them is do a deep clean, vacuum everything,vacuum the couches,under the cushions,the underside of anything that touches the floor, wash every item of clothes,bedding ect any fabric eggs will stick to. then

Borax- like the white stuff that some people use on laundry
sprinkle that shit everywhere-get it in the cracks in the floors,sweep it around,pour it under things, give the pets a dust bath in borax.

After hundreds upon hundreds of dollors a few $8 boxes of borax solved my problem.

Don't use coconut oil. It doesn't do anything. Once you get the flea population under control, your dog should go on a monthly flea prevention. There are some that are combined with heartworm prevention, but you can only get them through a veterinarian with an up to date heartworm test. There is a new prevention for fleas and ticks that works really well, called Simparica. Don't use flea baths EVER. And avoid grocery store brands like Hartz or others. Treat your home and your yard routinely for 3 months to break the cycle and keep your animals on flea prevention to avoid another outbreak. Fleas can pass on bartonella and other nasty organisms, not to mention the danger of flea anemia that can and will kill an animal.
