I do my Living Better features Monday-Friday with The Morning Team between 5 and 9am on 84 WHAS; specifically, we run at around 6:55, 7:55, and 8:55. You can also hear me Saturday mornings from 9-10am.
I also do a regular feature for KNN called Kentucky Hearth and Home that runs weekdays at 11:40am, just in case you are travelling around the state and hear a familiar voice.

Fleas can quickly become a terrible nightmare for you –as
well as your pets. To reduce problems with fleas, make sure that your pets are
well fed and that they get a lot of exercise and sunshine. The idea here being
that healthy pets are better able to fight off flea attacks.
Good sanitation will go a long way as well. Bathe your pests
frequently, and keep their bedding laundered and vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.
You can also use some natural food supplements to word off
these pests. The concept behind most of these supplements is that they produce
an odor on the pet’s skin that may not be noticeable to you, but is repellant
to the fleas.
Brewer’s Yeast can be added to your pet’s moist food, use
about 25mg/10 pounds of pet weight. B-complex vitamin supplements might help as
well. Health food Stores will also usually carry a variety of herbal-based
products that you can try---check with your vet before feeding anything like
this to your pets though.
Rub your pet’s fur with citrus oil (although cats may not
like this one). Use diatomaceous earth as a barrier to help control fleas.

Southern Indiana- has organic treatmenst that you could use indoors and
When all else fails, certainly there are many many synthetic
pesticides that you can turn to that are labeled for flea control.
