Pets at your home are the root source of the most Flea Infestation. Your pets can easily catch fleas while running around the yard or from other animals while playing. So, the first step is to check your pet regularly if they are the root source or cause of flea infestation in your home.

Hopefully, there are a few home remedies that would be helpful to prevent and get rid of flea infestation. In this blog, we will discuss them in detail so that you can try them in your place.
- Complete Sanitization And Vacuuming
To prevent Flea Infestation the first foremost step is to go for complete cleaning of your home. Fleas lay the eggs usually deep into the furniture, beds, carpeting, and other hidden areas. Thorough vacuuming, sweeping, and mopping can help you a lot to remove the flea from your place. Be careful to throw away the vacuum bag in the outside trash immediately after the process and do not get in touch with the fleas. Also, wash your pet’s bedding and all those areas where you can trace the flea infestation.

Baking soda works as a natural home remedy to exterminate fleas. Just lay the baking soda on the areas of flea infestation and with a hard bristle brush, rub it onto the fibres of carpets. After that, vacuum your carpet and other infected things thoroughly. Do not forget to empty the vacuum bag carefully in outside trash without getting in touch with the fleas. This will be best practise for Homemade Flea Control Treatment.
- White Vinegar
Vinegar though citric but is a natural and chemical-free home remedy that is safe both for your pet and child. Make a solution of equal parts of vinegar and water in a bottle and spray on all the areas of Flea Infestation. You can also spray on your pet but be careful to check if your pet does not have any wounds and avoid the eyes. Allow the solution to dry and after that, you can use a flea comb to brush out all the fleas. Clean all the areas where you have sprayed as a preventive measure after some time. By using this treatment, you can work like a pro and can also avoid hiring Local Pest Controllers.
- Flea Trap And Flea Repelling Plants.
In a bowl make a mixture of dish soap and water and place in all those areas where you can see the flea activity. This creates a trap that acts as the glue for trapping the fleas due to the high viscosity of the solution. This home remedy works effectively when conducted at night time to keep the fleas infestation out of the house.
There is a range of different plants that repel fleas as they contain specific oil, compounds, and chemicals to which fleas hate. Use these plants around your home in vases and flower pots as the best remedy to keep the fleas away. These plants include pennyroyal, lavender, and spearmint.
Although there is a majority of home remedies for a flea infestation, they are not 100% effective. This is because the fleas can be eradicated from the surface but the root source of a flea infestation is ignored. Many of the larvae and eggs of fleas are left behind. This creates room for another flea infestation to arise in a short time. You can also read our blogs on Organic Pest Control Tips for Fleas.
