Damn dude, what kind of girls have you been bringing home?
Actually, this is a legit question. If you've had any birds, or dudes for that matter who own pets, they could have infested your car with fleas. Entirely possible. Girls are more likely because fleas hide in their hair, no joke.
Go to your local grocery store and rent a steam cleaning vacuum, make sure it has a hand held head to it. You are basically going to have to steam clean every carpet surface in the car and vacuum the seats without steam of course. I would do this a few days in a row.
Yes but dont over do it. Especially on the ML stay away from over doing it on the A pillar trim the glue is really weak and likes to come off. Other than that I did it a few times in the ML to get the lake smell out.
WHY THE **** DO I HAVE FLEAS IN MY CAR AND HOW DO I GET RID OF THEM?
Been to the beach lately? Get a box of Boraxo and sprinkle it all over the carpeting (don't forget under the front seats). Wait a week and then vacuum it all up. Boraxo will kill the fleas (high salt content) and deodorize your car in the process.

I'm doing the car in the sun mixed with poison method. It's been two days. I'm going to open the car on Sunday.
I found out that it didn't start from my car, but from my building in Hancock Park. Apparently, it's the worst flea season in Los Angeles in ten years. If you walk through the courtyard of the building, within minutes, you'll find fleas crawling up your pant legs.
Western Exterminator came today and I have yet to check it out. Since this is a second home, it's not a huge deal. But this is how it started. ****ing bugs.
