We are going to leave for the weekend, and brush borax all over the carpets before we leave. So far I think there are just fleas in our bed, but that is the only place I get bitten. I put the flea collar in the vacuum, it seems to be helping bring down the adult population. Gah I am going nuts here
|Boric acid, sodium borate, and sodium perborate are estimated to have a fatal dose from 0.1 to 0.5g/kg.  These substances are toxic to all cells, and have a slow excretion rate through the kidneys. Kidney toxicity is the greatest, with liver fatty degeneration, cerebral edema, and gastroenteritis. Boric acid solutions used as an eye wash or on abraded skin are known to be especially toxic to infants, especially after repeated use due to its slow elimination rate.|

I wish I could sue someone--I literally have 100s of bite scars. They look horrible and I will probably never wear shorts again. The flea population is way down after FleaBusters came in--got a bite yesterday but it will take 5 weeks for them all to go away. What a nightmare.
