I called my mother to ask her about some other methods that might work for you.
She said, that its very important to treat your house, and yard.
She said that Lavender oil mixed with some water is good for treating your house for fleas. none chemical way..
And it smells nice if you like Lavender smell...
Also she said that 20mule team Borax laundry detergant will work aswell, sprinkle on the carpet and keep it there for up to 2 weeks..
If you use your sweeper, be sure to throw out the sweep bag, as many of the fleas will get sucked up into your vacum, and re populate that way too.
So besure to empty out the sweeper bags.. As they will crawl back out of the sweeper and back into the house..
She also swears by Dawn dishsoap, to bath them in that.. But if you do not treat your house and yard, you will have fleas no matter what you do to the
She has dogs, so its easy to give dogs a bath presay cats...
Thats the only non chemical advice I can help you out with..
Your yard may need some chemical to treat it..
Theres alot of personal projects you can find here too
Do it yourself network
I hope that helps a little bit till you can talk to your vet
As for the eggs, I dont have an answer for that... But my mother did say that the 20mule borax was the best non chemical way of getting rid of them in
I miss Bill Hicks.
I agree, he will be missed!! and Denis Leary stole the mans jokes! But thats will be another thread!!!
