Mochi has gotten fleas =\, lots of them. It started once we stopped using a flea and tick shampoo a few weeks ago when we ran out. Now there's fleas everywhere. I've done lots of reading, and I was wondering if there is anyway to remove fleas from the home without using sprays or carpet powder that are toxic to both pets and children. If i have to resort to one of those, is it bad to have people in the house when its being treated? I heard crumbling bay leaves and spreading them around the carpet will make fleas come out then you can vacuum them, or shampooing your carpet with hot water will kill adults and larvae.
