|I vacuum manically, wash regularly, keep DE smashed into and under rugs, and under seldom-moved furniture, and spray sleeping surfaces with cedar oil. Dogs are bathed about once a month, brushed regularly and wiped down between baths.
The problem is I'm currently forced to live with someone who refuses to do anything anti-flea/tick for the cat she refuses to keep indoors. So no matter what there are fleas in the house. I don't see any point to dumping chemicals on them every 4 weeks, year-round. There are still going to be fleas in the house and they're going to end up resistant to topicals if I go that road.
Not to mention the fleas will just start biting us, since Frontline doesn't work and most of the others contain a repellant.
I haven't had that many problems, as long as I keep up the routine. Occasionally I find a fleck of flea dirt on someone, but that's about it. It's nowhere an infestation, just fleas are routinely present in the environment.
