Good Questions: Nice Flea Killer?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

My rude, noisy, stinky neighbors moved out and took their malodorous cat with them! That’s the good news.

Unfortunately, the new neighbors who moved in have fumigated the apartment, and all of the fleas have moved upstairs TO MY APARTMENT. I am deathly afraid of the harmful chemicals used to kill insects, but I cannot live with fleas… so gross. Does anyone know of a natural/organic/not-carcinogenic way to get rid of fleas? At this point I am seriously considering moving to a new apartment.

Thanks, AJ
