Vacuuming will pick up most of the fleas in your carpets or on hard floors. What will keep their eggs from hatching? Combine one cup borax, one cup baking soda and one cup table salt. Sprinkle this all over your carpets, brush it down into the fibers and leave it overnight. The next morning you should run the vacuum cleaner. The borax and the baking soda kill the fleas, and the salt dehydrates the eggs. Repeat this procedure within 30 days, then as needed. Best of all, it is non-toxic.
Make your own herbal flea dip. Take two cups of fresh rosemary leaves and add them to two pints of water. Boil for thirty minutes. Strain the liquid, discard the leaves and mix it with up to a gallon of warm water. Pour this over your pet until saturated. Do not rinse off, but allow your pet to air dry.
DIY flea treatment! I found this and tried it. Just take a spray bottle, put in 1/2 tea spoon of salt, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix 4oz of warm water and 8oz of apple cider vinegar. Once the apple cider vinegar and water is mixed, SLOWLY pour it into the spray bottle with the salt and baking soda already in it. Make sure to pour slowly, it will react. Spray on carpets, furniture, stuffed toys and pets. Be careful not to get it in pets eyes. Works like a charm!

Try this every time youre ready to vacuum and youll be surprised how this little trick will get rid of not only fleas but ants, spiders and just about any critter thats lurking around your home.
