I haven't had fleas for a long long time. They don't overwinter in Canada that well, but can be bothersome in hot and humid weather. Years ago I had indoor/outdoor cats and did get fleas, but I got rid of a lot of them by just bathing the cats with a flea shampoo and using a flea comb. Also a lot of vacuuming around the baseboards particularly helped. Since my cats have been strictly indoor cats for many years now, I haven't had any fleas---more than 14 yrs. ago as I recall now.
