Table salt and baking soda work well. Sprinkle one or both on floors, carper and furniture and let sit overnight then vacuum up. This makes the fleas dry up and die. Do it several times a week as the eggs hatch and soon you will be flea free.

I used 7Dust or Seven Dust You can sprinkle it on the carpets and on the animals just don't get it in their eyes. Worked on all my animals. Never hurt them.

Have used 20 Mule Team Borax in past years, sprinkle it in your carpets at the end of the day, next morning, vacuum up the borax, reapply in a week to get any hatched eggs. Won't hurt your pets, also it is in the laundry section at the gro store. Hope this helps.

Oh, empty vacuum bag immediately after each use to prevent any left over live ones from escaping.

Hi - be sure to give your dog a bath with Original Dawn dish soap to kill their "personal" fleas in addition to everything else you try. I have been told that flea eggs hatch everyday for 7-10 days so that is how long you will have to work on getting rid of them.

Don't forget the outside even if your dog is an "inside" dog as fleas are carried in on animals and people. Try to treat the area you use the most.

Look up flea control on Thrifty as there are lots of good suggestions.
Fleas are very bad for small animals and I even had to have a small dog given a blood transfusion years ago so this is something you will want to work on until they are gone - and then keep a weekly schedule as a preventive measure.

Someone mentioned using Seven Dust but I do not believe this available anymore as I have tried everywhere in Florida and the stores say they can no longer sell straight Seven Dust (either 5% or 10%). If someone finds it I sure would like to know if it is in the state of Florida! I loved it for plants and bug control.

Don't use 7 dust on your animal to kill fleas. It is too toxic. We almost killed our dog by doing that years ago. We were young and not too smart.
