Best Way To Get Rid Of Fleas In House


If you have pets in your house or if you love inviting pets to your home, then you’ve probably wondered a lot about how fleas can become a problem for you and your beloved fur friends. Fleas are those parasites that actually feed off the blood of your furry pets and frankly, these pests can easily invade homes and bite your pets and even yourself!  However, these little creatures rarely bite on humans because the majority of the time it is furry pets that they like to feed on.

Flea Prevention Methods

While fleas can be such annoying pests, they are still not as harmful as dangerous insects such as wasps but it does not mean that you will not feel a thing from them once you’ve been bitten. Just like insect bites, the bite marks of fleas tend to be itchy, sore, and well-swollen.  In some cases though, a flea bite can become infectious and dangerous if the animal that was bitten has a great allergic reaction to the flea saliva. Now, before you go on panicking about a potential infestation in your home, you need to make sure first that it is fleas that you are dealing with. We can recommend no better way for you to do this than to call the nearest Go-Forth Home Services branch in your area.

Dish Washing Soap

This may probably one of the easiest and cheapest method of overcoming a pest infestation through home remedies. You can use dishwashing soap as a flea trap. All you need to do is fill in a bowl with a mixture of warm water and dishwashing soap and place the bowl in areas and corners of your house in which you see most flea activities happen. The water and dishwashing soap will act as a paste that shall trap the fleas with the contents of the solution. This method becomes more effective if you place a candle near the solution because fleas are known to be attracted to light.

Clean Up

If you are still trying to figure out how to get rid of the fleas in your home once and for all, know that one of the most effective flea extermination methods is through vacuuming and cleaning. Fleas live in areas that will enable them to hide when needed so mattresses, carpets, rugs, and even bed sheets are those places that are attractive for them in terms of habitation.
