I’ve bombed, sprayed, vacuumed every room and corner, dumped that into a bag outdoors and still they are here! It’s unfortunate that we are having a heatwave also. My cat and I are getting sick from all this. Help!July 11, 2017 at 4:18 AM #71217
I recently got flea bites on my arms and front shins. I took a shortcut up to Northfield. through the forest across the street recently. Locals take their cats and dogs their to poop and pee. Disgusts me.
Could I have gotten the bites from the ground in the forest?
Totally upset and itching like crazy. What is the home remedy for the itch that works? I have tried peroxide and aloe vera plant. Still itching here.

What’s the best products to use on humans and to treat your home from fleas, also is vinegar a good product to kill fleas? ThanksAugust 20, 2017 at 7:30 AM #72760
How do you use vinegar to kill fleas? I still have them, thinking I got them gone but I have seen them on my leg this morning. Got them off and killed them by flushing them down the toilet. I’m done. I have carpet in the bedrooms. They are not real bad but need help. Where do you spray?August 20, 2017 at 7:36 AM #72809

Remove all bedding, it all has to be washed, including pillows. I would put my sweeper on the bed and turn it on, the vibrations helps drive them out. Then place on the mattress a white plate with water and add a few drops of Dawn dish soap to it, make it completely dark in the room and direct a single light onto the plate, white light being the best but any light will work. Fleas are attracted to white jumping onto the plate to their death. Dispose of sweeper bag, any fleas swept up eventually find their way out. Repeat in a few weeks for any fleas that may hatch from eggs left behind. You may want to do this on your floors as well. Hope this helps you.December 15, 2017 at 9:45 AM #74299
I have always had such a problem with mosquito, flea, and tick bites. They itch like crazy, and swell up. A few things that help me are rubbing alcohol, ammonia, or witch hazel. Recently, my indoor cat has been enjoying laying in the sun outside on our back porch, and brought fleas into our house. He sleeps with us, so they are biting my ankles, and arms too.
First, I brushed my cat, to get all the adult fleas off him, then sprinkled baking soda and salt all over my carpet, couch, and mattress to kill the flea larva & eggs. It works by drying them up, then you vacuum the soda & salt after it sits all day. After that, I bought a zippered mattress protector, the ones that prevent dust mites from getting in your mattress, and sprinkled the baking soda & salt on the floor under the bed too. I repeat the whole process every week, and it seems to be working.
When we had a dog, I would give her a bath with a little Dawn dish soap, and that worked great at killing the fleas on her.
