After my niece had a serious reaction to pest control, I realized that we were up against a few big problems. For starters, I knew that we needed to identify the types of pests that we were struggling with, and then we needed to find green products that would be safe for her to be around. It was a little bit of a challenge at first, but within a few weeks we found a company that offered the perfect line of products. I wanted to start a blog completely committed to pest control, so I started this site. Read more about keeping your family safe here.
Fleas are tiny bugs that can be difficult to get rid of. They are great at jumping away so it's difficult to kill one even if you see one on you or on your pet. Fleas can come in from outside or jump on your clothing if you've been at someone else's home that has fleas. They will nest on your pet's fur, biting your pet, and can even bite you causing itchy bumps. If you have a problem with fleas, you'll need to get rid of them immediately. See below for tips to get rid of fleas inside your home and outside in your yard as well.
Give Your Pet A Flea Bath
If you have a pet at home, give him a flea bath with a flea shampoo. If your pet isn't too keen on baths, you can take your pet to your local veterinarian or to a professional groomer for help with this task. Read the shampoo to be sure it helps to kill fleas on your pet. Brush your pet thoroughly and inspect his fur for signs of fleas.
Clean Your Carpeting
Vacuum your carpeting throughout your entire home to get up any fleas in your carpet fibers. Empty the vacuum bag or canister outside to prevent the fleas being released back into your house. To help remove more fleas you can use a carpet shampooer or steam cleaner to clean your carpeting and to kill fleas.
Use An Indoor Pesticide
You can spray for fleas in your home or use a flea bomb, which can help kill fleas throughout your entire home. Flea bombs require some preparation such as covering up children's toys or placing items in bags to prevent the pesticide getting on certain items. It also requires some deep cleaning after use as well. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the pesticide you choose to use and be sure not to use them around small children or your pets.
Kill Fleas Outside
If you are bringing in fleas from outside, you'll need to get rid of the fleas that are in your yard. Be sure to keep your yard trimmed, as overgrown grass can attract a number of pests including fleas. Remove brush piles and other debris in your yard as well. Sprinkle a pesticide throughout your yard, or spray a pesticide around your yard to kill fleas and other pests that may be in your yard as well.
Fleas can bite your pet and you as well. Get rid of them as soon as you spot a flea in your home. Be sure to use a flea preventative for your pet to keep them away from your pet.
