Hi, a few months ago we got a kitten but then found out our 4 year old son was allergic to cats and it also brought in fleas. We ended up giving it to a family member, long story short the dirty fleas just won't leave! It's more important now than ever as my wife has given birth and our new born is now being bitten. 3 weeks ago we paid the council pest control to exterminate the fleas, it worked for about a week. They came out again 3 days ago for free...AGAIN were still seeing fleas. We wash all bedding and vacuum every where, edges, floors, coders, furniture...Everything. We haven't a clue what to do next and the council won't come out again for another 11 days. We need these gone please help, any advice?
