A flea battle that is.... Sorry I have not been posting. I have been flicking fleas and vacuuming twice a day for about a week. They are not just inside. They are all over the yard outside. They love me!
My crazy lovable friend Debra said, I know how to get rid of them!, Me: How? Debra: Go buy 2 of those glow in the dark flea collars and put them around your ankles.. Don't forget to snap them to get them to start working!! She thinks she is cute!! lol.. I can just see Hubby when he comes home and I have two glow in the dark anklets on!!! I wonder if they would even have a big enough collar for my swollen from the heat and flea bite ankles... hmmmm I may have to buy the size for a Saint Bernard Dog!!!! lol But today, I waged a battle on them. I got these:
They didn't know what hit them!! Remember the old Raid commericals ? RAIDDDDD! I popped these two cans and left for the day.. Hubby finished doing the outside tonight with spray. All around the trailer and under it and all over the yard..
I will still continue to vacuum everyday. Fleas must be bad in our area.. I bought the foggers at The Tractor Supply, got the last package. The guy at the check out said they have about sold out. I can believe it!! He said everyone is having problems.. We've had a good bit of rain that makes it great for fleas and mosquitoes.
So this summer I can so me becoming the insects main course! I don't dare use the environmentally safe repellent for these insects.. Oh No!!! I tried buying the deet free and safe for children kind. Homemade right here in Alabama.. No it didn't work!!! I have to use Deep Woods Off! That is the only kind that works for me.. I still put the other on the grand kids. This is another reason I don't like summer. BUGS!!!
Till Later... I am back to stitching instead of flicking fleas....
