    Default Teensy black flies??????????

    sixty without having more than an occasional fly in my home.
    Unfortunately, however, I just adopted a stray dog and stray cat (which

    (almost invisible) teensy black thingies flying around.


    Can anyone please suggest ways to get rid of them? And offer any
    ideas of what they are?


    Thank you VERY much!

    Flees look like tiny black dots. You may need to get some flee spray for your furniture, carpet and dog. Good luck, Nancy J.

    <font size="3" color="black" face="Times New Roman">12.0pt;color:black;">It sounds as though you may have fleas. Check
    your pets fur to see if there are any black fleas crawling on their skin. If
    there are, you’ll have to get advantage to put along their back and then
    have someone come out and spray your carpet. It’ll take about 21
    days for all the fleas to be gone and you’ll have to vacuum every day. We
    just ran into fleas with our dog…it’s a pain! Hope that’s
    not the problem.

    If, like others have suggested, it turns out to not be fleas, I would

    try leaving a glass of apple vinegar on the counter. If they are fruit

    flies or something like that, it is likely that some of them will drown

    in the liquid. Soda also works... I have left a glass out before and

    found it filled with fruit flies, on accident. You just have to figure

    out how to keep kitty out of them.

    Good luck with your two new additions.

    I hope you figure out what is flittering around your house.

    <font face="Times New Roman, Times">Thanks, everyone, for your wonderful
    help with the flies. I gave my newly-adopted stray a sentinel
    tablet, and haven't seen a fly since.


    It would never have occurred to me that they were fleas, since I didn't
    see them on the dog, and have had dogs all my life but never saw those
    teensy flies before.


    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
