By Fleas! My cat found a way into the rest of the house and dropped all sorts of fleas and eggs, esp in my room where I found her napping. I have bites all up and down my legs and they just won't quit! I spent the better half of the day yesterday vaccuming and spraying but they just won't die!

take a daytrip somewhere and fumigate your house. if they're in your room, odds are they are spreading throughout your home now.

I picked up a can of this Raid Flea Killer Plus, says it kills adult fleas and hatching eggs. I've been spraying areas where lots of fleas seem to be but they come back shortly after the spray dries.

Bought some of those 'bomb' cans and set them off in the apartment one time after my cat had gotten out and brought back fleas.

Ended up having to have her dipped twice, too.

Oof...hate fleas.

First, get the cat treated. If you 'bomb' the house and don't treat the cat, they'll come back. IIRC, fleas can't live on humans (they bite, but can't live on it..not 100% positive on that, though), so if the cat has been treated, the fleas will eventually die. That's what we did, and we don't have fleas anymore..
