Ok, so my 2 indoor cats have come down with FLEAS !!!!!!!!!!!!!
The dog is outdoors, but gets Frontline ALWAYS and has all his shots & stool samples....no fleas or parasites~~~~~~~~~
The dog NEVER comes in the house, either.
So I figure we must have picked up fleas at someone's house we were visiting, and brought the fleas home ????????????????????????
So, cats have had Top Spot, and I vacuum every single day & dust mop the hardwood every day if not twice a day...and so far we humans have no bites.
BUT, I found flea eggs & poops on my computer chair, my art table chair, the couch sleep spots the cats love...the window sills, and their bedding...lots and lots of eggs, and that does not include however many zillions were on the floor and/or carpets.
I vacuumed again.
So now I am thinking of steeping rosemary, making a tea, and spraying everything but that would only repell...
So, any recommendations from anyone of something I have not done yet aside from the flea bath (I will not do that to these cats, they will KILLME!) please let us all know what YOU do to KILL fleas on your carpets & furniture.
Okee Dokee ?
I haven't had issues with fleas indoors for almost two decades so I'm not much help. I have peppermint planted around the back steps (since we only use the back) since it's supposed to deter many insects including fleas. I um may have dug up a bit to much mint this last spring, so it wasn't as good a crop this year (I love mint tea.)
