My son just brought home his first fox. Very nice red w/ black feet and ear tips. Very dark red color. Problem is he brought home fleas. He left the fox out over night to skin today. It was cold enough the legs froze a little, and the fox cooled down pretty well.
When he brought it in the garage, he found some small bugs and called me. I took a look at one in the magnifying glass, and it disappeared. I mean it jumped clean out of sight. CRAPOLA!!! Now keep in mind the garage is only 35 degrees or so, and the little pests just started marching off the fox. We saw 3 in just a few seconds, and it was only about 2 more before the fox went flying out the door.
So I took all the dog rugs out of the garage immediately and shook them really good and laid them outside. Then I opened the garage doors to cool the place even more so the vermin could not do their ninja jumping stuff. I grabbed PIC and started burning a bunch while my boy looked for some Raid or something. We finally found a can of something that professes to kill bugs just fine. I sprayed the garage liberally, then he took a bag outside to put the fox in and sprayed in the bag as well.
Is there one spray that works better than others? Anything else you would do to be sure things were cleaned up and the dogs could not get infected? Which by the way would thoroughly raise the dander on my wife because she likes the one to sleep with us.
Thanks for the help.
