HOW TO GET RID OF FLEAS IN BED
One flea bite can be as alarming as discovering a whole colony of pests in your home. Why is this so? Fleas have the capacity to lay hundreds of eggs at a time plus, their life cycles take place very fast which means that they grow in number fast. As soon as you get a flea bite and find some presence of fleas on your bed, then you could be in the brink of an infestation which means that you must take action immediately. However, there are ways that you should resort to in order to effectively get rid of any flea presence in your home. The number one way is to deal with your pets. You have to treat your pets first since they are the primary target of fleas.
You have to get your pet checked with a veterinarian to properly determine whether it is fleas that you are dealing with or not. If it is fleas, then the vet will easily suggest a few flea treatment products that are good and can be bought on the market for either dogs or cats in your home. Although, you have to make sure that the product that you’ll be using for your pet is extremely safe for their type since some dog products cannot be used for cats.
Now, to further take control of the flea infestation in your home – here are some tips:
Clean your Beddings
The exact moment that you find out that you have fleas on your bed, wash the sheets immediately along with the blankets, comforters and pillow cases. Wash these items with hot water and strong detergents in order to dry out any fleas on it. After this, proceed to drying the materials on the dryer. Both of these processes will not allow any fleas to survive as the hot water and dryer ultimately does the trick for this method. However, some infestations are not limited to the sheet and bed surfaces which means that you have to take the cleaning to the next level.
The next step would be is to vacuum your mattress and pillow itself. You also have to include the carpets and rugs in this process as well. By doing so, you will be able to eliminate not only the adult fleas but also the larvae and eggs which leads to the end of their life cycle. After vacuuming your bed, sheets, pillows, carpets and stuff, dispose the vacuum bag properly in order to avoid your captured fleas and larvae to travel to another nesting place. Keep in mind that the vibrations caused by the vacuum penetrates the fleas to come out of their larvae making them very exposed to the insecticide
