My house has FLEAS! And honestly, I have no idea what to do, guys!
First, last week some strange red bumps started showing up on Sami's legs and I told him it was probably just mosquito bites since Finland gets a lot of mosquitos in the summer.
Well, today while I was on the computer, I felt a tickle on my leg and when I looked down, it was a FLEA!
I killed it immediately and told Sami, "There was a flea on me!" At first he didn't believe me and said that lots of small bugs could look like a flea. I said, "No, I'm from Louisiana. I KNOW
what a flea looks like!" Well, then he goes to look at Kirby and there was a flea resting on top of his hair.
Later on, we find one on Gerona and then I find TWO on my legs while I was resting on the couch.
So, tomorrow Sami is going to go buy some flea stuff from the pharmacy but I'm worried it won't work since you have to go to the vet and get a prescription here for stronger flea medicine.
On top of that, I don't know if they sell stuff that you can spray your yard with to kill fleas here of if there is a pest company I can call. This is very frustrating since Finland doesn't have the range and amount of flea killing products that America has since fleas are not a big problem here.
Now my body has tingles and itches all over it because I'm paranoid about the fleas.
I'm so worried that this is going to get out of hand because I don't have anything to combat the darn things with! My first reaction when seeing the flea was a desire to run out and buy flea bombs for the house. But are there flea bombs here for me to buy? Nooooo!
Keep your fingers guys that this won't become a huge problem ... I'm so paranoid right now.
