Don't Add Flea Collars In Your Vacuum

I've been doing more dog research on the internet, and have found out a couple of things. Long ago, I told people on ThriftyFun that they could cut a dog flea collar in quarters and put one quarter in a vacuum cleaner bag at a time, sealing the other three pieces into a freezer bag, and putting them in the freezer, until needed. (my vet told me this) Somewhere on the internet, I just read that this should not be done because of fumes.


God Bless All of Us. We really have to be watchful and careful of what we do. Some people might be fine with a quarter piece of flea collar in a certain type vacuum cleaner, and others of us may have problems with it.

Also, don't put moth balls in a vacuum cleaner bag because of fumes.

We should be careful of ourselves and our pets.

If the fumes from a flea collar were enough to bother us, then why would we ever put them on our pets? I like the idea of putting pieces of one in the vacuum and plan to start doing that.

The piece of flea collar in vacuum cleaner bag kills the fleas you vacuum up! I use all natural collars from Natural Pet & love the scent! Doesn't bother the critters, either!
