I've been battling fleas for 3 weeks now. These mother fuckers are resilient!
It's easily cost me over 200.00 in treatments for the cats and shit to kill the fleas. I've been on a rampage spraying, treating my cats, cleaning my house, removing every piece of carpet I have, down to the hardwoods now. Vacuuming like I have some OCD disorder. THEY CONTINUE TO HAUNT MY LIFE.
The first week was bombing and treating the cats, followed by extremely thorough vacuuming.
Second week I decided not to bomb and use more of a targeted approach with sprays. That seemed to help more, although I'm pretty sure I have lung cancer at this point.
The most effective way to kill them, at least visibly, is putting out a small plastic bucket filled with water and dawn dish soap, with a candle in it at night. The fleas are attracted to light and jump right in and die, you can also pin point the heaviest concentration of them. It's fucking amazing how many fleas I have killed with this method. I've finally cleared my daughters room for the most part, had no fleas in the bucket last night. I'm scared one of them is going to crawl up my ass or pee hole while I sleep at night, because it's warm up there.
When I thought I had a handle on things last week I tried the soapy bucket method t and couldn't believe how many there still were, within 10 minutes I had like 9 dead fleas in one bucket. Now I'm finally getting to the point where I have no fleas in the bucket the next day.
My cats are treated so they act as mobile flea killers. When the fleas jump on them and bite, they die.
I could go on and on about these annoying little cunts, they have literally dominated my life the last 3 weeks. My 2 cats don't go out, have no fucking clue how I got them. It's disgusting, I look like fucking white trash with bites on my ankles.
Fleas are seriously amazing creatures. 1 pregnant flea can lay 50 eggs per fucking day. That is crazy, if I slack even a little trying to fight these bitches it's like all my work is for nothing. I'm going to fuck these fleas up, I'm so close.
