Cats, fleas, prevention, difficulty +11 weeks pregnant.
How do I keep the fleas away but not endanger my wife (or future child)?

Three cats, and we had fleas last summer. Quite a bit of work to make them leave; including some drops on the cats and (eventually) flea bombing most of the house.
The problem? The Mrs. is 11 weeks pregnant; we're going into summer and there are quite a bit of rabbits/moles in the area (which we like); along with mice (who have occasionally gotten into the house.) As much as we can, we've tried to find any exterior small holes, but mice are good at getting into places, aren't they?
BTW, we're catch and release people, not mouse killers.
Any idea of how to stay flea free and not endanger our progeny?
