Jim:
When I worked for a local furniture manufacturer, they had old building and we had fleas. We also had a lot of furniture…
The professionals we hired did more vacuuming than anything. They did use a liquid on the floor that was nasty, and they were careful to not let it get airborne. But they were ADAMANT, fleas lay thousands of eggs, and nothing kills the eggs. Have to vacuum them up. Or…You have to wait till they hatch and then you can kill them. So the liquid has to be re-laid on the floor for about three weeks, until the cycle is broken. And you vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. These pros we hired used throw-away bags, so a shop vac probably won’t work. A flea bomb will work for a couple days, maybe even a week, until the eggs hatch and more fleas survive the bomb which only works for a couple days. Start with a complete cleaning of your shop floor, and put down a liquid recommended by your local co-op, since they should be up to date on fleas, servicing many farmers and others in ag.
Good luck!
