Spring and summer are the seasons when the bugs and the critters try to take over your lawn and house. The June bugs arrive, attracted by the porch lights. Bees flit among the new blooms, and wasps buzz by your head as your enjoy the outdoors. And when you least expect it, the dogs begin scratching, which means fleas!
Now, if you’ve had pets, you know what I’m talking about. Fleas are those tiny hopping bugs that not only suck the blood out of your pet, but invade your house if you’re not careful! If you see any signs of fleas on your pet, it’s time to stop the invasion before it’s too late!
What do you use to get rid of fleas?
WOW I had a round with fleas this past summer and since we have experienced a mild winter about to head into spring I am concerned about having another bad year with fleas. I swear the flea treatment I have been getting from my vet, and use without fail, simply did not work for what ever reason this last year. Thank you for the help getting rid of fleas. I refuse to use the new pill my vet suggest, in fact it is all they carry now, commercialism... I won't be forced to shove chemical poison down my pets throats.
I was just researching flea control for my cats. Living in Florida means that fleas are a problem year round. I dislike putting chemicals on my animals, but some of them are being made better and safer by caring companies these days.
I still find that sprinkling Borax all over the carpets works best to kill fleas and other bugs in the house. I'm not sure yet what to do about the ones on my cats. I can't keep up with the flea comb, although that does pull them off.
