we have a flea infestation, they jump on you when you walk in a room, they even jump on using our beds ( I suspect the dog getting in the beds has a lot to do with this). My daughter has fleas now and both her and I are getting flea bites, although they leave my husband alone and my older girls seems fine.
We do have a dog and 3 cats, 1 cat comes inside regularly the other 2 are mostly outside. The dog is an inside outside dog with a doggy door to the backyard. We treat them all with advantage but the lats application didn't seem to do anything at all. Further more our neighborhood has a problem with raccoons, opossums, and rats. they roam the neighborhood and even homes without pets occasionally get infested. Apparently it's our houses turn.
what can we do? I have looked up ways to treat the house, it seems to involve a lot of chemicals. which really I am okay with, anything to get them out of the house and off my daughter. My husband can do all that and I can take the kids and leave the house and stay with my mom or sister. I don't know if their are other less chemical intensive ways of treating them.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
