FLEA FACTS AND HOME REMEDIES By Chic Miller Let me start by making one thing clear – I HATE fleas. No one hates them more than I do. I spend much of my spring and summer spraying, powdering, and bathing my ”family” to prevent these dreaded little beasts from becoming unwanted guests at Bella Vista Farms.
