How to Get Rid of Fleas

Fleas thrive in warm and humid environment. They are often carried by your dogs and cats from outside. It is necessary to get rid of fleas since they can transmit disease and cause tapeworm. I am certain that you must have been troubled by fleas even if you have no pets. I am going to offer you some instructions to get rid of fleas.

Clean up your house.

  • All of the pet beddings, which includes anything that the pets often lie on, should be washed in a washing machine and then put in a hot dryer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Clean your house with a vacuum. You should pay special attention to places that are rarely exposed to sunlight. You can spray salt, Borax and baking soda before you vacuum. Then you should seal the full vacuum bag to prevent fleas from crawling out.
  • You should clean outdoor areas where you pet usually plays. You can increase sunlight on dark and moist sports by trimming lawns and weeds around your house.

Clean your pet.

  • You should choose a shampoo carefully since anything containing pyrethrins, permethrin, chlopyrifos and carbaryl will harm your pet. Therefore, you should choose natural ones such as cedar oil, tea tree oil, rosemary oil and citrus oil.
  • Washing the neck first ensures that fleas don’t jump to the head during the bath. You can bath your pet with shampoo for more than five minutes and less than fifteen minutes.
  • Make flea dip yourself. Put fresh rosemary in water and boil them for 30 minutes. Then you can discard the leaves and add warm water to the boiled water. Put it on your pet and wait for your pet to air dry.
  • Apply a flea comb designed to remove fleas. You should brush your pet all over its skin.

Apply natural flea products.

  • It is believed that smell of the yeast is not preferred by fleas. You can put it in its food.

Choose the best chemical flea-treatment product according to your veterinarian’s advice.
