About 2 weeks after our cat passed away we were hit with a flea infestation.
They don't bite me but love my wife so I was getting it in the neck from her.
I would like to say that I have found the magic product to kill the fleas but I haven't.
Below is the action I have taken over a period of about 3 weeks.
First get a tray of water with washing up liquid in it and place a desk lamp over it.
This will catch some of the fleas but its main use is to see how many fleas you catch each day and so judge your progress.
I have tried them all sprays, powder, bombs, home made potions and the vacuum cleaner.
I really don't know if any of them worked or if it was a combination of all of them.
One thing that is important is the vacuum cleaner you must vacuum every day.
This will remove all stages of the flea lifecycle.
Johnson's flea spray did not seem to help.
Bob martin flea bomb - I used these twice in the bed room and they appeared to clear that room.
Ant and crawling insect killer from Pestshield. - This is relatively cheap from B&M stores and the residual smell is not strong. I sprayed it before going to bed but not in the bedroom.
Home made remedies were salt and a lemon juice spray. Simmer two lemons in water for about 45mins to an hour strain and spray.
Another useful item is a piece of sticky tape so if you see a flea, which you will, you can catch it.

Finally I will say this again but I do believe the vacuum cleaner was my best weapon.
Fleas appear to me most active first thing in the morning or in the evening so these are the best times to vacuum. Don't forget to empty the bag or they will breed in it.
