No more itching...

I am now flea-free!!! Well – the animals are and so is the house! I followed every step of the vet’s advice and it has worked.

Thanks to Syd of I'm Just F.I.N.E. -- who told me about Wax Myrtle Trees being a natural deterrent to fleas. I called the nursery and they are holding four of them for me to pick up next Saturday. Thank you very much, Syd!!

I think that was Buddy T who suggested the wax myrtles, Linda. We have a lot of those myrtles here but also have fleas. I suppose one can't cover all the acreage with myrtles. Glad that you are flea free though.

You're right -- it was Buddy T. I'll post a special thank you. Maybe the location has something to do with it. I'm going to plant four dispersed on my one-acre lot. If it doesn't work... I wanted to plant some trees anyway. No loss.
