How to Get Rid of Fleas

The very thought of fleas in the home is enough to make most people’s skin crawl, but it can happen through no fault of your own. Pets can pick up fleas from other animals or places and give them a ride home. Once they arrive, you’ll want to get rid of them fast.

Tips on Getting Rid of Fleas

There are several things you can do to get rid of fleas if you catch the problem early enough. Here’s our to-do list for a flea-free home:

Before you do anything else vacuum carpets, furnishings, cracks in the floorboards and upholstered furniture. This will not only get rid of adult fleas, but also their eggs and larvae. The larvae feed on adult flea faeces and other organic matter, which collects in things like carpets and rugs. Removing this source of food is an important step.

Empty your vacuum cleaner very carefully away from the house because the fleas will still be alive.

Groom your pets regularly with a flea comb and wash their beds every week (ideally at 50°c or above).

If your pet is scratching or biting its fur you should talk to your vet. They can recommend the best flea sprays or powders to use to treat your pet.
