We live in the country and have been having a recurring problem with fleas which I'm embarrassed about. Today when I was out shopping with my son we saw a flea on him and I was so embarrassed/upset. I'm a type A clean freak and we have 2 dogs and 2 cats, all before our son. One of our dogs has nipped at him a couple times and they make such a mess I have to vaccume everyday. we've treated them with frontline repeatedly but I can't help but feel I can't stay ahead of it. we've started to consider rehoming them because of their need for more exercise and attention and my lack of time to provide it along with some behavioral issues.
Does anyone have any advice on getting fleas out of a home without using strong chemicals?
Any advice of rehoming dogs? please spare me the "how could you get rid of your fur babies" speech, I feel bad enough considering it and my baby comes first.
