I am so pissed off right now! My house has fleas in it and we dont have any pets! When i went to get my daughter out of her crib this morning there were 3 on her face and she had bites all over her face and neck! I hate this and I dont know where they came from or how to get rid of them. I also have a newborn in the house so I'm not sure if I should use insecticeds or not! Please help...I'm so embarrassed and it's so nasty!Answer Question

If you have squirrels in your yard, or other warm-blooded animals, you can have a yard full of them, and of course they will hitch a ride on you if you walk through where some are. Since you have no pets to walk through it, you can sprinkle Borax all over your carpets, leave it as long as you can, then vacuum it up. You can get the borax at walmart in the laundry section as 20 Mule Team Borax, it's way cheaper than Boric Acid which usually comes in much smaller containers for about the same amount of money. And it's basically the same stuff.
Also, could there have been people with pets in the place before you?Â Sometimes they are dormant a long time and then a batch crops up almost out of nowhere.

I've never thought of people with fleas in the house as nasty, dirty or unclean, but I suppose some people are just more judgmental. But I live in the south, land of eternal hell summer, and there are a lot of animals outside in my area, so it's just a fact of life in some places.
