How can i get rid of fleas in my house

I have bombed my house and used other sprays have vacuumed the floors and beds and still can't seem to get rid of the fleas. Our cat has been made an outdoor cat and hasn't been in the house for 2 weeks still can't seem to get rid of them....what else can I do?

You don't have to put your cat outside... They have flea collars and flea baths and powders to get rid of the fleas off your cat. That's the source of the fleas. I'd give your cat a flea dip bath and then bomb your house all over again. You may have to do that a few times. Make sure you are using the right amount of bombs to reach every square foot in your home. Good luck

I would still treat your cat for fleas, even if it's an outdoor cat. And if your cat has fleas, there is a chance it could have worms also (fleas are the carriers of tapeworm larvae) Use Advantage Multi on the cat, vacuum the house, spray the carpets with proper flea spray (the wrong stuff could kill a cat) and keep your fingers crossed!!

Sprinkle 20 Mule Team borax on your carpets, bedding, etc. Leave it for awhile then vacuum up. It suffocates the fleas, house smells great

I've used borax too. It works. Sprinkle it over all your carpets and rugs even sofa and chairs. Leave it for 24 hours then vacuum. Throw away vacuum bag. I agree, you don't have to keep your cat outside. Use revolution or advantage on your cat. Also, you can bring a flea into your house on your shoes or pants.
