View Full Version : Flea infestation

Just heard on CNN that vacuuming is the best way to get rid of a flea
infestation. They said that the vibration of the vacuum cleaner causes the
eggs to hatch prematurely and then they can get sucked up with the live
fleas. They recommend 3 - 5 times a week and to empty the bag each time.
I've also heard people recommend putting a cut up flea collar in the vacuum
bag to kill off fleas.

Don't know if this works or not but thought it was interesting as it doesn't
involve using chemicals around the house.
