fleas a couple times but nothing extreme
We had fleas before.
I took the cat to the vet. They gave her a pill that was supposed to kill all the fleas on her. Then started her on Vectra (I think that's what it's called). That and tons of vacuuming did the trick. I would vacuum the whole house 3 or 4 times a day at least, and I'd empty the canister every time so the fleas didn't sneak back out.
No, we keep our animals and homes clean.
Had a flea issues years ago when my sister and her 4 dogs stayed with us. It was gross. W used that peppermint eucalyptus powder from the pet store and it worked really well.
we've had fleas a few times, when my husband was a grad student in texas we moved into an apartment complex that had them and never treated it... assholes. they were fairly bad, you could open my dogs legs and see them zooming around but it wasn't like they were eating him alive. We had the apt. treated and the dogs but we battled minor problems the rest of that lease. We have one or two popping up lately now in PA. not an actual problem though.
bed bugs... no (knock on wood) and that would be extreme hell
lice.... nope. (knock on wood)
you make me laugh. it takes a flea on the bottom of your shoe to get a flea infestation.
