My daughter ius 3 and I have 10 month old (crawling) twin boys.

I need a safe- and effective- way to treat my house.

Bombing isn't really an option because we're home all day and really have no place to go.

Is there any more natural ways that I can rid of them..and fast

Thanks so much!!!

I'm not a "pet person" mainly because of fleas. I found this article for you. When I was a kid and we'd get fleas from pets, my mother vacuumed like crazy which the article suggests:

I HAD A BIT OF A FLEA PROBLEM WHEN I WAS PREGNANT. I DID BOMB, BUT BEFORE AND AFTER IT I MOPPED THE FLOOR WITH HOT SOAPY WATER I ALSO ADDED A BIT OF BLEACH TO IT. MAKE SURE YOU GET EVERY CORNER. WASH YOUR BEDDING AND EITHER TREAT THE PET OR GET RID OF IT. FLEA BITES ARE NO JOKE
