Have you tried Diatomaceous Earth? It's not very expensive and is nontoxic as long as you make sure it's food grade, just rub a small handful into her fur and sprinkle it around areas you think fleas might be hiding. If you're getting flea bites on the back of your neck then it's likely they are nesting in your bed so you'll want to wash your blankets, sheets, pillows, etc. and shower+wash your hair daily, if you don't already. You can sprinkle DE on your mattress and let it sit for a day then vacuum it up.

If you have the beginnings of a flea infestation in your house you'll want to get out ahead of it before it really becomes a problem and requires an exterminator.

Spookyandsammy Spookyandsammy Too bad I don't live near you. I have a huge bag of Diatomaceous Earth that I used a tiny amount when I first got Boone and Gracie because I figured they must have fleas from being outside for the first 2 months. They didn't so the bag has been sitting in my garage since May unused. :ohwell:
