    Flea bomb the house, may need to do it multiple times. Nothing else will work

    This works, SkyCity doesn't have fleas any more.

    Could also try moving out. That's the future occupants problem.

    Change your sheets, vacuum, keep your room clean, don't keep clothes on the floor etc.

    Fleas aren't hard to get rid of unless you're a filthwizard.

    One other method you can use to kill them is leave a saucer of water with a bit of soap leave it on the ground underneath a power point with a nightlight on above it at night the fleas jump towards the light and drown.
    Do this in combination of the above and you might be able to eliminate them with no flea bomb but flea bombs works the best tbh

    Serious suggestion; Diatomaceous Earth Powder

    https://www.fleabites.net/kill-fleas...-earth-powder/

    It's a much "greener" solution than a flea bomb (although a flea bomb will work, you'll just have a fine coating of flea bomb chemicals over everything in your home). DE is a powder that is so fine it gets into the flea's joints and causes mechanical failure. Sprinkle it into your carpets, leave for a while, vacuum it up. That's pretty much it.

    Get pest control in to spray your house.

    You will need to break the flea life cycle. If there are fleas, there are eggs.

    Yep, flea bomb, vaccuum, flea bomb, vaccuum, rinse, repeat.

    Also, mow your lawn low and remove any long grass close to the house.

    This is also great for roaches. Clogs up their pores and they can't breathe.

    Have to chuck it under things, though (like cabinets and whatever that have a cavity underneath), if you have pets who like sniffing the ground.

    put bed sheets, pillow cases etc, and any clothes that you've been wearing into hot soupy water. Vacuum the house.

    This is not an insane idea - if you treat the cat with e.g. advocate they become a walking flea death camp

    And empty the vacuum cleaner somewhere you won't reinfect your house.

    try and find some bug killer for all your windows ledges etc.. if you're getting tons of random shit invading the house. Might help with the fleas as well.
