boric acid...boraxo. In florida (prime flea country because it never freezes) there are companies that will come and treat your upholstered furniture and carpets. This is what they use and they sprinkle it into the carpet and pound it into the upholstery. It dessicates the fleas. Safe for you and your pets, but it may make them VERY thirsty...be sure and put out extra water for them.
Whenever we build a house (my husband says it's my hobby) we sprinkle it on the sills between the drywall. It will prevent ALL bugs, including cockroaches.
Find it at a hardware store... Just be sure and use it places where it won't get wet. Wait awhile and vacuumn thoroughly and then throw away the vacuumn bags. It works.
I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
