Spray Your Yard
Spray your yard to get rid of the pests in the yard and to prevent them from getting back into your home even after you've gotten rid of them in the house. They will continue to come inside if you still have a problem in your yard. Spray your yard using a pesticide spray that is made to kill fleas. Spray the yard according to the manufacturer's instructions and kill these pests. Repeat the process if necessary. Be sure your children and any pets are not in the yard while you do this.
Vacuum The House And Wash Blankets/Bedding
You need to vacuum your home to remove pests that may be hiding in your carpeting or in the fibers of your upholstered furniture. Vacuum everything you can and wash all bedding or other items that you can wash to kill fleas. Empty the canister of the vacuum cleaner outside so fleas that may remain don't get back into your house. Fleas on your bedding, blankets or throw pillows can be killed in the washer/dryer, so wash everything you can.
Spray Inside Your Home
You need to spray the inside of your house with a pesticide spray that is made to kill fleas. Use the spray according to the directions and use it throughout your home. Repeat every couple of days until you have gotten rid of the fleas in your home.
