Try this trick at night to find out if your dog or cat has fleas. Fill a shallow baking dish with water and a few squirts of dishwashing soap, then place the tray near your dog's bed. Plug in an LED nightlight and focus the light so it's shining right onto the tray of soapy water. Then turn off the lights and let the fleas follow their natural instinct to go toward the light. In the morning, you'll know if there are fleas in your home if there are dead bugs floating in the water. The soapy water coats and kills them.
