Learn How To Get Rid of Fleas

Fleas, scientifically known as Siphonaptera are species of small insects that survive as external parasites. They consume blood and use the mechanism of the host body. Dealing with fleas is very annoying as fleas are tiny organisms. They generally breed on animals like dogs, cows, pigs, etc. But, we are Homo sapiens also known as humans, considered as the most developed organisms and probably the most intelligent too. So, here are some of the ways by which we can knock out fleas.

Herbal Flea Spray

Herbal flea sprays are organic, non-toxic and easily available products by which you can easily kill or remove fleas from your surroundings. It is one of the best and easy home remedies to get rid of fleas. They contain some concentration of vinegar, lemon juice, witch hazel and water. The whole area must be clean before application of the spray.

Steam Cleaning

As it’s stated earlier in the introduction that fleas generally breed on to animals. So, there’s a possibility of getting too many flea species on our pet beds and even on our floor carpets. Steam cleaning these filthy floor carpets and pet beds will decrease the number of fleas residing on them. Steam cleaning includes cleaning through high-temperature steam of water or some other fluids too. 

Flea Repelling Plants

There are a lot of plants whose presence greatly affects fleas. Some of those plants are Penny Royal, Lavender, and Spearmint, etc. These plants are flea repellent plants. Because of their aroma or natural composition, fleas greatly dislike them.


Fleas can easily hide under the cracks on the wall. Sometimes they lay their eggs there too. So, vacuuming is a good way to hurl these fleas out. Using a vacuum cleaner to clean the ample spaces left between cracks of a wall can be very beneficial to destroy the fleas habitat from there. Apart from it, vacuuming also keeps our house clean and it’s super easy to use a vacuum cleaner.

Using Chemicals

In the market a huge variety of aerosol sprays are available which are recommended to be sprayed directly under the bed, wall cracks and the places which are highly exposed for the breeding of different flea species. You need to choose the perfect aerosol spray or some insecticide that can effectively kill a large number of fleas and can stop their eggs or larvae from popping out and develop into adult fleas. But, you need to keep in mind that some people are allergic to some of the insecticides, so take all precautions before spraying. You may also get this stuff in different aromas.
