Got fleas? Get a vacuum.
It seems that researchers at Ohio State University have determined that sucking fleas up a vacuum tube causes their demise, what matter what stage of growth they are in. This is good news for some, not much benefit for others.
Don't think it will be much help to the weenie dogs that live at my house. They make themselves scarce at the mere sight of vacuums, plus they would probably clog the machine.
But thank goodness someone finally saw fit to pay researchers large sums of money to sit around vacuuming fleas. I can't think of a more exciting way to spend a workday.
