How Vacuum Assist in Furniture Flea Controls


 
Home Improvement,Health,Environment
If you have a flea infestation in your home there is a good chance that some of them are hiding out in the furniture. You can treat your furniture the same way that you would treat carpeting, pet bedding and other items especially if your furniture is fabric based.

Frequent vacuuming and disrupting of flea breeding sites can help greatly in indoor flea control. Vacuuming daily is the first option for getting rid of fleas in furniture.

Fleas lay eggs while on the pet. Eggs then drop off the animal into carpet, bedding, furniture, or onto the floor.

After a few days the eggs hatch into very small, legless larvae. Partly digested blood that flakes continuously from a flea-infested pet is the main food source for larvae.

Furniture is one major host for adult fleas, eggs and larvae, as dogs often sit on sofas and chairs, and cats love to sit, walk and sleep on furniture.

Dust the furniture with this combination as you would dust anything else in your home. Make sure you get all the cracks and crevices where eggs and larvae might be hiding. If you have an ottoman, turn it over and treat the other side. Turn over any chairs and furniture that you can to treat the bottoms.

Thorough vacuuming with a good, beater-type vacuum can remove 15-30% of larvae and 30-60% of flea eggs from carpeting. In addition, vacuuming helps remove some of the flea larva's food supply and straightens carpeting fibers, enhancing penetration of the carpet by insecticide sprays.

When vacuuming, remove all of the couch and chair cushions and vacuum them as well as under them. Try to vacuum all the inaccessible areas of the furniture, and do not forget the areas underneath, using a good quality suction vacuum cleaner.

When vacuuming pay special attention to areas where the pet spends a lot of time. These are the sites most likely to harbor eggs, larvae, and the dried blood that larvae need. Don't neglect to vacuum under furniture, cushions, chairs, beds, and along the edges of walls–favorite flea breeding sites. Be sure to discard your vacuum cleaner bag at least once a week when battling a flea problem. Fleas can continue to develop inside a vacuum cleaner bag and can reinfest the house.

The eggs and larvae of the fleas are the easiest stages to treat. Disrupt the life cycle of the fleas by going after the eggs and larvae with a combination of boric acid and a botanically based pesticide.
