Default Flea collar safety -- Please help

I was wondering if anyone knows of good measures against fleas and ticks besides a collar. I don't mean shampoos and sprays for AFTER they have fleas. The reason I am asking is because I have small children and I don't want them to be endangered by touching the collar by accident. Please help if you know.

Crookshanks, my best advice, for what it's worth, is to get some so-called "spot-on" flea product called Advantage or other brand. You have to obtain it from a vet. It works very well on my menagerie, only has to be applied once a month, and does not seem to harm the kitties (although it has to be applied in a spot where they can't lick at it, more or less between the shoulder blades - the instructions will explain). Please do not use the store-bought "spot-on" stuff, as it has been known to harm or even kill the cats. After I discovered this stuff I've been a confirmed proponent because it works, it's easy to use and my legs aren't speckled with little red welts.
