Home Remedies Kill Fleas

Many home remedies kill fleas effectively and naturally, not to mention cost effectively! If you have kittens or puppies you do not want to use chemical products on them. You can cause them to become very sick! If you have nursing or pregnant cats or dogs, again, you do not want to use chemicals for your flea control.

Many of the chemicals that are used for flea control could cause your puppies or kittens to become extremely sick, possibly even die. The same goes for pregnant cats and dogs, the chemical products may cause problems with the unborn kittens and puppies. It is very important to treat the, "to be", mommas for fleas, you don't want the puppies or kittens becoming infested when they are born.

Lets look at some of the natural products you can use for remedies to kill fleas:

Fresh Mint: This can be used both indoors and outdoors for flea control. Since fleas come in from the outside you can take a pro-active approach by planting mint plants around the yard. Not only will it help repel the growth of fleas outside but you can use the mint leaves for all natural flea sprays on your pets.

All you need to do is boil 3 cups of water with about 8-10 fresh mint leaves. Let the water cool with the mint leaves still in the water, take the mint leaves out of the water and throw in the garbage. Pour the mint water into a spray bottle and spray on your pets. Be sure to spray the bedding your pets use and any areas that they occupy often.

Table Salt: Yes, table salt will effectively kill fleas and the egg, larvae stages of the fleas as well, inside your home. Simply take your table salt and sprinkle it liberally around your carpets. Take a floor broom and rub it into your carpets.

Let the salt remain on your carpets for a few days, them vacuum thoroughly throughout your home. The salt gets stuck in the fleas joints, causing them to bleed. When the salt penetrates through the flea it will dehydrate them ultimately causing death to the flea. The larvae and eggs of the flea will also be sucked of their natural water properties and causing them to become dehydrated and die!

Vacuum: Your house can be the cleanliest on the block, you still need to vacuum a lot to get rid of the fleas. You have to remember that the fleas have 4 stages in there life cycle, adult, egg, pupa, larvae. Only the adult flea is visible to the eye, the other life stages are hiding in your carpets, furniture, possible even your bedding if your pets sleep on your bed.

Vacuum your entire home once a day, including your furniture. When you vacuum go slowly over your carpets, don't rush, let the brushes in your vacuum penetrate the carpet fibers. When the brushes turn on your vacuum they are pulling the egg, larvae and pupa stages of the flea to the top and sucking them up.

Make sure that you are emptying the vacuum bags or washing the canister after you have vacuumed your entire home. You don't want any of the fleas escaping out of your vacuum that you've just spent all that time to get rid of .

There are many all natural recipes that you can use to get rid of fleas effectively. You can learn how to effectively get rid of fleas in your home and on your pets as well, here!
