Do you notice some small red bites on your body, similar to those mosquito pinches: hard red swellings with a very strong itching sensation? Then you are probably facing with a flee invasion.
If you are a pet owner and your pet is scratching more than usual, and you can see some small black spots on your pet’s fur, then you should take serious measures!
To get rid of fleas, you need a vacuum cleaner! This, if you don’t want to use harsh chemicals!
For flea removal, specialists recommend using a disposable sack vacuum cleaner. Handle it carefully to prevent fleas from escaping from the container. Once the bag is loaded, seal and burn it. If you want to reuse it, put it for 2 hours in the freezer. The low temperature will kill both fleas and their eggs.
Another option is to use a water vacuum cleaner. In the dust accumulation liquid add a few drops of insect solution to make sure nothing survives later.
If you have a vacuum cleaner, you can insert a flea collar in the dust container.
Another natural way to get rid of fleas is to sprinkle salt and borax over your carpets and floor. These two substances act against both fleas and eggs. Apply the solution in the evening, let it work overnight and vacuum the area the next day at least 3 times.
Another solution is to improvise a trap. Place a water pot and a few drops of dishwashing detergent at the side of a lamp. Turn on the lamp at night. The fleas will be attracted to light and bulb heat, and will jump into the water bowl to get closer to the source. Although they can swim, the soap in the water will no longer give them that possibility.
