it has been damp so if you're in a warmer area I can see it being a problem. Call an exterminator.

I have had no problem in years.

Back when I did, we had to bomb the house 3 times, and then I washed all the bed clothes, rugs, etc. in really hot water.

At the time I had heard that is was a bad year and people were hiring their yards sprayed to help with the problem.

Good luck...but yes, I would call an exterminator and ask them for advice.

Adults of fleas are plenty in the soil or the garden debris and became active in the spring.tiny white eggs are laid on or in soil cracks around the base of plants.These hatch in about one week and the slender white larvae feed on plants for appox 2-3 weeks.pupae usually available in the soil for 7-9 days until there life cycle is completed.


Control measures:

place yellow stick traps throughout garden rows every 15-30 feet to capture adults.
