Long, long ago, when the earth was young, we had a massive flea experience when we moved into a house that used to host several dogs. You could see the fleas jumping in the carpet. We made the mistake of using chemical treatment and exterminator. This was very good for about a month. But then, the fleas were worse than ever and nothing we or the exterminator did could get rid of the infestation. It turns out that we weren't the first ones to use poisons on the fleas, but ours was the tipping point and we had created chemical resistant super-fleas! It was nasty!
So this time, we didn't want to risk having an exterminator in. Instead, I followed the advice in this article for both house and car. After three days the fleas were greatly reduced. By two weeks, they were gone. I never expected flea removal to be so painless and affordable. I wish we had known about this the first time. ...
