I decided to split the section "Removing fleas from the host" into an Human and animal (pet) section.
What to Do:
1. Bathe one to two times daily with soap. Insecticidal shampoos are available but are not always necessary.
2. Comb daily with a special flea comb designed to drag fleas out of hiding and dispose of any rousted fleas in soapy water. You may also want to record daily the number of fleas removed so you can identify any population increase before it becomes a problem.
