I've been staying with a family for an internship and I noticed that along with some bad poison ivy, I was also getting itchy insect bites on my feet and ankles. The people I am staying with have three dogs and all three are constantly itching from what I am fairly certain are fleas. I am very much looking forward to returning home (unfortunately the internship was a bit disappointing) but I'm worried about bringing the fleas with me home. How likely are they to be in things like my suitcase or on my clothes? I don't let the dogs in the room I am staying in but the family has carpet so who knows how many fleas are living there. Should I wash all my clothes when I get home and put them in garbage bags? What about my suitcase? I hate insects and do not want to transmit these to my dog and cat at home.
