Getting rid of pesky fleas is only half the battle in every home. Doing it safely is a challenge in itself. Many pet products contain hazardous chemicals, safety is a concern to both pets and humans. |
One reason for their overwhelming presence in your house is the fact that the eggs of fleas can get dropped anywhere inside your house. These eggs then turn into larvae and finally into fleas. What's irritating is that flea eggs can remain dormant for over a year and that's why sometimes when you have treated your home and felt as if it is now fleas free, they appear from nowhere!
You need to be on a regular watch and clean your home frequently once you have eliminated fleas. Here are some effective home pest control remedies for fleas with which you can not only kill the fleas but can also control their recurrence.
Whether they are in your home, on your pet, or in your yard fleas are a nuisance to have around. Killing them without toxic chemicals is possible and affordable. This is a guide about getting rid of fleas naturally.
Home isn't so sweet when you share it with fleas. A full-blown flea infestation is like a scene from a horror show — bugs hopping on to your skin from every direction faster than you can bat them away. Treat your home the second you discover a flea problem. Following are some suggestions:
Ask your veterinarian for advice. He will likely recommend two treatments repeated in ten days to two weeks in order to kill the pupae that have turned into adults. No flea treatment can kill flea pupae.
Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. Not only do you pick up the adults, but you also scoop the eggs and larvae from their nests. Make sure you toss the bag after you vacuum, though — adult fleas are wonderful acrobats and may escape from the bag.
Treat your dog's bedding by washing it with an anti-flea detergent from the pet store or by simply throwing it out.
After vacuuming, treat all rooms in your house with the recommended product.
Open all windows when you get home.
Exterminate fleas in the yard. A good freeze usually takes care of them, but if you can't wait — or if you have mild winters — talk to your veterinarian about your options. Your entire yard should be treated (it can get costly if you own a large parcel), and your dog should be kept away from surrounding environments that may be infested
