DIY flea management

There are a few simple strategies you can apply to keep out fleas from your home and control them to an extent, but first, it is expedient to know that there are two versions of a flea infestation.

One is of the adult flea, which you can quickly notice when you see them jumping around your pet or even you, and this is usually triggered as a result of a vibrational motion from the flea’s host.

The other is the larvae, egg and/or pupae, which are the more difficult version to control as they are minimal and breed in obscure sections of your home. The following are tips to help handle or prevent a flea infestation from occurring;

  • To remove fleas, you can make use of a mixture of sliced lemon that has been boiled with water and, thereafter, left through the night. Put the mixture into a spray bottle and apply it onto sections of your home you suspect or have confirmed fleas. You can also use a mix of botanical dust and boric acid, which is very effective and can be applied to furniture, beds of any kind and carpets. The basic precautions to take are to ensure you apply the mixture while having a mask on and clean up the applied places after leaving the property for at least 24 hours. There are a variety of other tips to keep fleas away or trap them, like water and detergent mixture, cedar chips and applying fine grain salt to your carpet, among other techniques.
  • Essential measures to keep fleas away are generally based on ensuring your property is kept tidy and your pets are regularly bathed and taken care of.

Although these tips are effective, they can both be tasking, as you might not know the exact location of the fleas, and they might not take care of the majority of a flea infestation.

That is why you need to contact professionals like us, who have years of experience in flea control, to deliver expert services that will ensure your peace of mind.
