" I Hate Fleas"

Oh Boy do I hate Fleas,we have them in our house right now.Our dogs which are outside dogs stay on part of our porch when it's cold.Part of our porch is closed in when it's cold we open the gate to the fence and the dogs already know to run on the porch.They have their blankets and we also have heating lamps for them.Every so many days we wash their blankets to keep them clean and to make sure that no fleas lay eggs on the blankets.A few weeks ago when the weather warmed up the dogs went back to the fenced in area but we forgot to wash the blankets and put them up.They stayed on the porch and now we have fleas on the porch and inside our house.I hate when this happens,because I will have all my feet full of flea bites and they itch like crazy.So now we have been spraying the porch and the rugs in the living room and the computer room.Plus we vacuum twice a day to vacuum the fleas plus eggs that they are laying.We have parakeets so at night we move the birds to our bedroom and close the door and we spray the rugs with flea spray.I googled fleas earlier and I found out that cats and dogs have different fleas.I didn't know this,I thought all animals had the same kind of fleas.Anyway I really hate fleas and I can't wait until we get them out of the house!!!

OUCH!!!!<br />
I've never been stung by either, but I'm petrified by both!! Lol<br />
You know another thing that gives me the creepy crawlies, are CENTIPEDES!!!<br />
<br />
When I was a kid, one crawled out from underneath the stool I was sitting on and I damn near S*%T myself!! LOL

I think that they hurt about as much as a Yellow Jacket Wasp,except that the sting hurts like if you burned your skin for the next 3 or 4 days!!

HaHa I didn't catch that either! <br />
<br />
Either way, I bet it hurt like HELL!!

LOL,I had to go and fix my comment,they sting they don't bite,haha!!!

AHHHH You've been bitten by one????!!!! Yikes!<br />
<br />
Growing up in the mountains of Santa Fe, we certainly saw our share of scorpion and snakes!! RATTLESNAKES!!! *SHIVER*

I got used to scorpions when we moved on this side of town.I had never even seen a scorpion until I was 23 and we moved into this house.I freaked out the first time I saw one,it looked so alien like and I was cooking and it was crawling on the wall.I've been stung 3 times but I always would tell GOD better me than my children and all the little children that I used to take care of.

EEEWWW I know, me too! <br />
Just talking about it gave me a shiver down my spine just now! <br />
<br />
I don't know about more than scorpions or snakes though! LOL

I have a huge fear of roaches,I am more afraid of roaches than scorpions,or even snakes(non-poisonous of course)!!!

ROTFL<br />
I do that all the time! <br />
<br />
What a comical pair you two must make at bed time! Haha<br />
<br />
I guess it's better than going to bed with a can of Raid! LOL

Oh hell no,I hate fleas but I am terrified of roaches.I use the Combat Roach Houses AND THEY ARE GOOD TO GET RID OF ROACHES,damn it I had my caps locked again,lol.Everytime we go into the living room,kitchen and bathroom,we check our feet before we get into bed.My husband picks up his feet and I'm there with a piece of duct tape,lol!!!

EEEWWW I know! I hate that! They're a pain in the *** to get rid of too! <br />
<br />
I still think I would rather deal with fleas than roaches though! Talk about nasty!! *ick*

WM,yeah and now it's cold so I will be wearing socks.I will have a line of flea bites right above my sock line.I like to wear the ankle socks,so I am going to dread the next few days cause of those damned fleas.I carry a piece of duct tape with me and when I feel one on my ankles or feet,I put the duct tape on the spot and pick them up this way.I hate when a flea sucks my blood and gets away,then they go and lay eggs.

Oh wow, really? I didn't know they had different fleas. How interesting!<br />
<br />
Well it sucks for me either way having 3 cats and 3 dogs! I have both kinds of fleas jumping around the house then! LOL<br />
<br />
ICK, I hate them too, Lily! You're not alone........haha
