I had read that a way to control fleas is to use vinegar, it is supposed to be a repellant. I was just wondering if anyone else has tried this. I do not want to have fleas again like I did last year (I felt so dirty) We bombed the house like a thousand times, but they were still terrible. I am evicting the cats tomorrow (we live in the country and they are all adopted strays, they only come in the house to sleep, so they will be ok outside). Anyway, I don't want to use harsh chems b/c I am pregnant and I don't want the chems to linger after the baby is born. I do vaccume every day, but fleas thrive in the soil where I live. I was just wondering if anyone had any other ideas, or if anyone has battled this before, and what did you do to get rid of them?Answer Question

I don't know what to tell you other than when I bought powder carpet stuff that they sell in th epet department at Walmart, it didn't work! It was specifically for fleas in the carpet. At the time all I had was hard wood floors and area rugs so I thought they would be easy to get rid of. Ha! I was wrong!!

Borax powder soap, put it on the rug, rub it in with a broom. The fleas eat it and die. Have you tried front-line for the cats? They can become anemic if the get more fleas and keep getting bit they also get worms from fleas. The worms grow in the fleas and when the cats chew the fleas and ingest them they get the worms too. Also extreme heat and cold will kill cats, especially if the are anemic from fleas drinking their blood so be careful and at least let them in in extreme weather.
