Hello again, Dave and welcome back to Just Answer.My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you today.If you have pets (cats and/or dogs) with fleas, you will need to treat the pets as well as the environment. Any monthly topical flea treatment sold in vets' offices are acceptable to use on cats and dogs. Any flea treatment products sold in supermarkets or pet supplies stores (with the exception of Advantage and Frontline) are not effective and can have very adverse, sometimes, fatal adverse affects, so stay away from those.If you've tried to eradicate this flea infestation yourself, and were unsuccessful, you will need to enlist the help of an experienced exterminator who specializes in flea removal. A popular company that I've used personally, is Fleabusters. Here is more information:http://www.fleabusters.com/ they are nationwide and hopefully, have an office in your area. These are their service areas: http://www.fleabusters.com/Services/usa.htmlAnother way you can try to control and eradicate the fleas yourself, is to use food grade diatomaceous earth. This is available in garden stores, plant nurseries and Home Improvement stores like Home Depot. You can fill plant pots with this product and leave them around the house, and/or sprinkle in your carpet and outside your home in a garden or yard, if applicable. Here is more information on how diatomaceous earth works to get rid of fleas: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/all-around-non-toxic-flea-control.html
