After spraying my apt, all the upholstered furniture, washing all my bedding, washing my dogs with flea shampoo, applying flea drops on the dogs necks, what can I spray or put on and in my bed covers and sheets that will kill, deter the fleas and not be toxic to my skin that works? I am prone to itching and scratching so identifying flea bites is difficult if not impossible to determine because I am a voracious scratcher. Please help. I’m laying in bed every night unable to sleep. Dr has given me antihistamine and steroid topical cream but I’m still suffering miserably.
Here’s what I’m doing today: Strip the bed, wash everything at 60 degrees Celsius (centigrade) or hotter.
Vacuum the mattress really thoroughly and then used a flour sieve to sprinkle FOOD-GRADE diatomaceous earth across my mattress. I’ve used about 3mm thick layer and leave on for ten hours. It needs to be vacuumed off, and I’ve read warnings elsewhere (after I had sprinkled it on!) that you need a special vacuum cleaner as the powder can get into a domestic one and damage the motor. I’m looking to hire one or buy a cheap one just for this purpose. I’m lucky as I have a guest room and am sleeping in there till Thursday (my day off), so I’ll do the vacuuming then.
I have also sprayed the underside of my mattress with a flea killer spray (Indorex).
Am just off to spray my furniture with it.
Good luck – I’ll keep you posted.
