Default AH SH*T, my dog has been infested

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, my dog has fleas! I dont undersatnd why he has all these fleas on him, especially when I use advantage on him. But the thing is I only started to notice the fleas today. What I think happened was I took him on an extended walk, way out of our usual routine, so I think some fleas might have jumped along for the ride. But what is really supprising is that as soon as we were finished with the walk I gave him a bath right away. So even if there were fleas the hitched a ride they should of died or washed of during the bath right? I know he has about one more week until he needs another application of advantage, but would washing him weaken the effects of the advantage?

Another thing I dont understand is how these fleas can survive. After every walk I mist him with some really strong lemon water because I read that citrus juices and oils kill fleas. So as you can see I take the proper precaution to prevent fleas, but it looks like they have failed. And today after I noticed more fleas on him after his bath, I immediately vacumed and gave him a nice rub down with some lemons in my hands. Now I that if this becomes a serious problem I cant resolve it overnight, but what I was wondering was is there any more tips that I should know when it comes to preventing fleas?

Also do fleas bite people and how do the bites feel?
Any info would help, thanks!
