How To Get Rid Of Fleas

Natural Flea Control

If you have a pet with fur, then you are at risk of having fleas infest your home. Not only can fleas disturb your cat or dog, but they can also cause problems for you. Check out these home remedies to get fleas out of your home now. Fleas can cause inconveniences or worse, sickness to dogs or cats. Also, they can infest humans which is alarming. Eliminating them is the best solution, and there are natural ways on how you can get rid of those nuisances for good. If you want to give your pets and your family a safer, healthier, and pest-free place to live, here are some natural ways you can follow which can help you achieve your goal.

Household Items


These items that can help get rid of fleas you may already have in your home. A common one people have had success with is salt. You can create a line of salt at the entry points of your house to keep fleas from traveling into your home. Some people even mix it in a spray bottle with some essential oils like lavender. You can spray this mixture on pet beds and furniture. Do not spray directly on your bed or your pet because the salt may irritate. You could try it with just the lavender for that purpose.

Dish washing liquid has been successful in the termination of fleas around a home. If you mix a little with water and place it in dishes around your house, sometimes the fleas are attracted to it and die in the solution. These methods don’t always work but are occasionally useful. It is also effective to vacuum your home thoroughly, especially where your pet likes to hang out. It will also help to wash your pet’s bed and any other material your pet may have laid on to ensure all fleas and their eggs are eliminated.

Baking soda is a home remedy you can use to get rid of fleas, and this is considered as a practical solution for flea control. The baking soda will help in eliminating the pest from your furniture and carpets since they tend to hide on those areas. Apply the baking soda on the carpet and furniture and eventually use a hard brush to rub. Once you are done with the rubbing, immediately use the vacuum to sip all the fleas. Don’t forget to empty the vacuum to avoid the fleas from infesting the appliance.

Pet Remedies

Pets are the most affected by these annoying pests because they live and breed on their skin. Fleas love to live on pets because of how easy it is to maneuver through their skin and hair. If you suspect your pet has fleas, you should get them to the vet immediately to make sure they haven’t contracted any diseases from them like heartworm. Heartworm can be deadly to cats and dogs and should not be treated lightly. Once you get the diagnosis, you can pick up some flea shampoo at your local pet supplies store and give your cat or dog a thorough bath in it. This will ensure the fleas and eggs that are on them die and are removed efficiently from their hair and skin.

You can also take a comb and brush out their fur after they have dried just to make sure there is no more hiding. Once a week to try and ward off fleas from returning to your pet, you could mist lavender essential oil and water on them and their beds. This will help repel fleas and other bugs from returning but does not 100-percent guarantee they won’t return.  If your pet spends a significant amount of time outside, then they will most likely pick up fleas from the yard or even other pets. Do not be alarmed when you find out they have fleas though, because there are many methods of getting rid of them naturally from your home.

Laundering your pets’ toys and beddings can help in eliminating fleas. This will help in drowning those pests away. You can use white vinegar with detergent to wash those items and if you are unable to launder those, throwing it away is the best solution as the eggs and larvae can cause an infestation in your property.

Drowning fleas can eliminate them, especially if they are found outside. You can use your water hose to flood those nuisances. Make a pool on the ground for those fleas to be drowned. This is the best thing you can do for fleas infesting the exterior of the property.

Giving your pets a good diet can stop those fleas to infest as they hate healthy dogs or cats. As we all know, fleas are parasites, and they will attack the weak ones. If you give your dog a good diet, you can expect that those fleas will never be attracted. You can feed food rich in B vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, probiotics, Omega-6 fatty acids, and more. A healthy dog can enjoy a flea-free life.
