  • The DE I ordered is supposed to arrive tomorrow based on tracking. I threw out my rug and put my expensive sound dampening rug pad into a sealed garbage pad with either rosemary or basil in it. So it's now to just lineoleum. I also now have some clear dawn dish soap. Someone told me at the store that dawn in water mopped under the bed and around and sprayed on my linens works...

  • I had an exterminator come over. He found NO SIGNS of bed bugs. I've also plucked some off my body. tiny, black, about 1 mm long. bed bugs are round in shape and red. Absolutely fleas. The fleas jump from the floor to me sleeping. They've also laid their eggs all over my bedding. I am the only mammal in my home and therefore the only food supply for them. They don't come near my...

  • Just an update: I threw out my rug and bagged the noise rug pad. so I'm back to a lineoleum floor. Discovering that without a washing machine, washing bedding does no good because I guess the point is to physically remove the fleas and eggs from the fabric. Putting down boric acid. I ordered some dimetrious earth (spelling?) on amazon yesterday. I also ordered some lavender shampoo...

  • well the landlord was called this morning. Allegedly Orkin should be coming tomorrow. I assume a professional exterminator will have whatever modern methods work best? They did tell me they don't do foggers for fleas anymore. But as I have a cockatiel and her cage has to be disassembled to move (it weighs over 150 lbs and this is a split level apartment), I wouldn't want a fogger...

  • My vacuum is bagless. When I vaccumed this morning around my bed and as far under it as i could (not one of those models that can get under furniture, i dumped the canister into a small trash bag, closed it as tight as I could, then put it outside in the outdoor trash can which I covered tightly. I was able to take the upholstry attachment and go over the mattress pad (it's one of...

  • Could someone please explain strewing herbs and how use them? I have never owned a cat or dog; I'm a parrot lady. So FLEAS is a foreign idea to me. However, for the last four days, it appears my bedroom and my bed is now flea infested. I've been up for three hours after my first sleep after receiving several painful bites. Bed bugs were eliminated; I was able to talk to a zoologist...

  • I just plucked about 20 leaves of basil out of my indoor planter to stimulate more growth. I don't have any immediate need of the basil. Is there an easy way to dry the leaves? Right now they are all on a couple paper towels on paper plates sitting on my dining room table. --Laurel A. Rockefeller Author, Peers of Beinan Series

  • Okay...yes, I should have specified how I'm growing the basil. In my current apartment, I am able to use a combination of outdoor and indoor growing in pots. Back in February I bought a couple NK growing kits. One was for "salad mix" which did not turn out very good and I did not like the greens in it. The other was an herb garb with basil, parsley, and something else I don't...

  • Does anyone know how flowering and plant reproduction works? The basil in my primary flower pot is flowering. I would really like a pot of just basil. Is there any way I can get something from the existing plant that I can use for starting my second pot? I'm finding I really enjoy fresh basil over the dried stuff! How do you get more basil plants from a single plant? Hope this...
