- after vaccuuming dust the carpets with boric acid. It's cheap and you can find it in the garden section.
- bath them with a flea shampoo. Something like Adam's from Walmart is fine.
- start using a topical product every month. Even the cheap ones work well if you do it every month, even in the winter.

Boric acid? Would that be harmful to pets and kids? I've heard of using Borax (found in the laundry aisle) which I've been using on our clothes. Might have to start vacuuming more often than I do now. That might help.
I like to use lice combs over my fine haired animals (obviously not possible for the curly haired labradoodle LOL) every now and then to check for fleas... but I've also gotten rid of fleas from my outside cats using the louse comb. |
Just another tool idea for your arsenal, good luck, flea's are a itchy pain in the butt >.<
Ohhh that's a good idea. I might have one of those laying around. Didn't think about that.
