Flea infestations can be nasty. Especially since I get bit and react to them all the time! We've been through all the natural ways (Baking soda, salt, Borax, and so many other thing!) over the past few weeks, which sadly did very little for killing the nasty critters in the house, but I do find that I get a little respite if I rub down with baking soda! LOL!
I treat my dogs with stuff from the vat and always have. But I'm outside more in this weather as they are and I'm sure I'm bringing many in myself. Funny thing is this seems to happens about every five years and it take 2 months to totally rid the house, and me, of these dread invaders!
Because of the last infestation five years ago we got rid of the wall to wall carpeting. We now have only small patches of indoor/outdoor stuff which gives the dreaded fleas no real place to hide - according to the experts that is.
All that's left to us are the nasty treatments, and they are getting all too desirable at the moment. I did the bomb the rooms affected last night, and it did make it somewhat better. But I seem to be constantly vacuuming these days to get a bit of a respite. We're now dealing with the hatching (and re-hatching!) out of all the millions of eggs. Hopefully once that is over we'll be free again.
I've bought a LARGE can of Deep Woods Off and flea stuff for walls and furniture as well. Now, I'm hunkering down and am ready for the long fight, over how many weeks it will take!
We will win!! LOL! ....I HATE fleas!
