Resorting to Chemicals

    Newer Older

    My housemate treated his dog for fleas, so they high-tailed it to my bed, where they persisted for two weeks, despite frequent vacuuming, tea tree oil, garlic, incantations to the flea god, and general hysteria. Then I tried adult-flea killer, which doesn't hang around very much, but that did nothing. So now I have my sheets and comforter positively soaked in Raid. At least I can sleep through the night.

      Here's hoping you don't get chemical burns...

      At least the dog does not have fleas! :-)

      (Trying to think positive here...)

      ever heard of a washing machine/dryer combo? Those kill and remove fleas completely!!!

      Hopefully they've been exterminated by now. Raid seems to be about the only thing now that seems to kill insects dead within seconds....

      Get moth balls. Put them in your closets and at the foot of your bed under your sheets. Anywhere else you've seen and felt fleas.
