What Suitable Flea Control to Do Best With Carpet


 
Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
Preventing a whole-house infestation is the best pet owners can ask for.Fleas do much more than infest your dog and your cat. They get in to your furniture and your carpets and this makes them a little harder to get rid of.

Stopping an infestation of fleas from persisting involves breaking the flea life cycle at any point in the flea life cycle chain: from egg to larval stage.

Never underestimate the value of simple, frequent, thorough vacuuming in helping to get rid of fleas from a dog or cat's environment. Flea eggs and larvae in carpets, couches, human and pet beds and other indoors areas can be sucked away by regular vacuuming, reducing the environmental flea burden overall.

All regions of the house should be vacuumed, where possible, but important emphasis should be placed on carpets, soft furniture (e.g. couches), floors underneath furniture, floors underneath removable rugs and mats and gaps under side boards. Using a vacuum cleaner with a beater bar can help to shake flea eggs, larvae and cocoons out from places deeper within the carpet proper and improve the vacuum uptake of these flea life cycle stages. After each vacuuming, the vacuum bag should be disposed of, lest fleas start hatching and breeding inside of the vacuum bag!

There are some precautions to heed. Wear a mask when applying it to your pets and carpets and when you vacuum it, as well. Also, try to keep your pets from breathing it. It is nontoxic but still not good for lungs. Also, make sure you purchase natural DE, not the type used in swimming pools. Flour grade DE is the best. The swimming pool variety will cause scarring of the lungs. When you apply it to carpets, use a broom to brush it in and do not vacuum for about four days or even a week. Keep reapplying during the infestation. You will see an improvement in a couple of days.

Even better, instead of replacing the old infested carpet and couch with more of the same (i.e. another flea-attractive carpet or couch to reinfest anew), many owners assist their flea control and elimination efforts by replacing their old carpets and couches and the like with floors, seating and bedding made from easy-to-clean, flea-unfriendly materials.

Power of Salt

Purchase several large containers of salt. You will need at least one container of salt for each carpeted room in your home. Vacuum up the carpets to collect some of the fleas. Immediately remove the bag and place it in a garbage bag. Tie the garbage bag shut and place it in a trash can outside. This will prevent the fleas from getting back in the house.

Spread salt all over your vacuumed carpets just before you go to bed at night. Don't use salt in your bedroom just yet. Then, take your pets in your bedroom with you. Salt kills fleas because the salt pierces their skeletons and causes them to dehydrate.Vacuum up the salt from the carpets in the morning and then let your pets out of the bedroom. Pour salt in your bedroom that very morning all over the carpets. This will kill any fleas remaining in the bedroom.Vacuum up the bedroom carpet just before bed. Remove the vacuum bag and place it in a garbage bag. Put the garbage bag in the outside trash can.

Alternatives

Fleas can't stand the smell of eucalyptus, so dilute the oil and spray it on your dog. Adding the oil to the final rinse of your dog's bedding, putting eucalyptus leaves under furniture and rugs and adding some to your dog's shampoo will discourage fleas. For you cat lovers, sorry, your finicky felines can't tolerate eucalyptus or citrus. Others recommend making a shampoo using the following essential oils: pine cedar, bergamot, rosemary, lavender, eucalyptus, citronella, juniper or geranium
