I don't like to use pesticides because of my dogs, but I need to get rid of the fleas.
Food grade diatomaceous earth?
I will check it out...is it costly?
My house is filled with pets too. Here are a bunch of options for you.
So welcome Nena! Good luck!
If the fleas are coming in on the dogs you will need to treat them as well as the house. Call your vet and ask them what they recommend to apply to the dogs. In the meantime you can wash your dogs using blue Dawn. That should take care of the fleas already on them. Then treat your house. A lot of good info here for that:
Hi Nina: You could try making a mix 1 part Dawn dish washing liquid and 10 parts of water and spray your yard quite well with this. Dawn kills fleas and I have sprayed my yard when I had fleas out there. You might have to do this once a week (more often if it rains) for at least a month, to break the flea cycle. Good luck
Thank you...I might just have to give this a try!
