I surrender


I surrender.  The fleas that I wrote about in an earlier post here have gotten the best of me.  I returned to my mom's house today to find that they were alive and well in her living room despite all my efforts to eradicate them over the past couple of months and especially last week.  When I brought my mom back home last Thursday, I  placed a pan of soapy water under a goose-neck lamp on the floor of her living room (the site of the heaviest infestation)  to attract any remaining fleas and assess the effectiveness of my efforts and today there were 40-50 fleas in the pan.


Sigh.
