Fleas reproduce very quickly: they can lay one egg per hour during their three-month lifespan. In these three months, a female may lay over 2,000 eggs. In a home with pets, fleas are likely already prevalent. Areas with high temperatures and humidity are the main causes of flea presence in your home.
What are the signs of a flea infestation?
◾ Your pets scratch their fur constantly.
◾ There are small blood stains on the bedding and carpets (flea excrement).
◾ You notice small red bumps on your body, similar to mosquito bites.
How to get rid of fleas
All the curtains, all the clothes exposed to fleas, all the rugs, and all the objects you observed fleas or tiny blood spots on must be washed at high temperatures.
If you want to avoid fleas on your clothes, add a little vinegar to the washing machine and use a strong detergent and a high temperature cycle.
Besides washing the house, vacuum it thoroughly. For flea removal, vacuuming is the best option. To avoid fleas escaping from the vacuum cleaner, use it carefully. Disposable bags should be removed or burned after vacuuming.
You can prevent future flea infestations by wiping your feet carefully when entering the house, mowing the lawn in the garden, and disinfesting your pet’s sleeping area and other areas where they spend time.
