    Moth Balls or flakes - in vacuum bag. And vacuum like a mad woman repeatedly. And Daily for weeks. Empty bag after each use and get it out of the house.

    Diatomaceous Earth- spread outdoors ( do a search on it and see just what's recommended) you can also feed the food grade type of DE to Sophie with all sorts of health benefits. HRH gets a scoop with her breakfast every morning.

    you can also spread the DE on carpets but they recommend overnight application and that could be inconvenient to say the least.

    Good luck!

    We live in a flea prone area, but Pan hasn't had an out break. I have heard that this year is suppose to be horrible for fleas and ticks because of the warm winter.

    We use Trilefix (because its the only thing available right now).

    I have also read that a lemon juice and water mix is a nice repellent, but since we haven't had an issue we've never tried it. But you have definitely gotten a lot of great info!

    By the way, welcome to EBN and your baby is so pretty, thanks for sharing the pics!

    I'm late too!!!

    So this is what we use in the rescue when we go pick up a bully that we know is flea-ridden.

    Give the bully a "capstar" tablet as soon as we get to them, that will start to kill all the hatched fleas within 30 minutes. Take home and bath in blue Dawn dishsoap! Once they are out of the bath, we treat them with frontline. Personally, I then give them capstar every 24 hours for about 3 days in a row just to make sure!!!!
