Do you have fleas?

My husband is a "bugman", no, not half bug, half man, but rather a pest control technician. When his clients tell him that they have fleas in there homes, he will tell then to buy a cheap flea collar (for dogs, they're stronger) and drop it in the vacuum cleaner bag, the next time you vacuum, it picks up the fleas and the eggs, it will kill off any live fleas and the eggs when they hatch. That should help any flea problem in your home.

What a great idea. I think I will give this a try. We have a cat, and he doesn't have fleas yet, but this will help prevent an infestation should Frank ever get fleas

Give your pet a bath in dawn dish-washing liquid the fleas die quickly.Also mix some in a sprayer to spray infested area`s they die to.

I live in the country side and my cat is free to wonder about. While hunting rodents or socializing with other cats it gets fleas from time to time, so I have to give it a periodic inspection and give it a anti-flea powdering.

This is a great idea. I had a very thick pile carpet, & my husband was always concerned about the fleas that maybe harbvoured there. We got rid of a lot of our carpet, but there is still some in the bedrooms. Your hubbies idea is very good.
