Fleas are a common menace in the house, and there are many ways to tackle these tiny pests. The use of flea bombs is one of the ways to get rid of pesky fleas from the house or any other place. Get to know about some flea bombs that work, in this article.
‘Fleas here, fleas there, fleas everywhere!’ screamed my cousin joyously. It seemed that she loved the sight of fleas. Well, I then silently cursed her two noisy pets (a cat and a big dog) who roam all over the house creating an unhygienic sight. According to me, pets, especially cats and dogs, were the only creatures on the earth that bring in fleas in the house and thus cause flea infestation. But I was wrong in cursing those innocent creatures, as they are not the only ones responsible for bringing fleas into the house! Unhygienic habits on part of humans too is also an open invitation to the fleas.
The sight of fleas in the house is very ugly and annoying! Leave aside the sight, fleas suck blood from the human skin, and can thus cause infections. So if flea infestation is a ‘must-get-rid-of’ problem in your house and you are wondering how to kill them, what you need to do is blast some flea bombs in your house. They are easy to use and are a trusted means to kill fleas. The use of flea bombs (under proper precaution and adherence to instructions) will kill all the fleas, and also prevent their future hatching in the house, to some extent. In this article, we’ll discuss some popular flea bombs that work.
How Flea Bombs Work
The use of flea bombs should be preferred over other methods of flea infestation cures, because it is easy to use, reasonable, and besides killing the fleas, hampers their future growth too. Flea bombs, also referred to as flea foggers, sometimes are insecticides that come packed in pressurized cans. These cans should be kept at the center of the room, and then the trigger of the flea bomb can should be pressed. This releases the packed chemical gases from the can, and it spreads all over the room. Before using the spray, certain precautions need to be followed (they are clearly mentioned on the can).
As the fumes and gases from the bomb are somewhat poisonous in nature, and can cause harm to pets and humans (all living beings), it is safe to stay away from the room for the recommended amount of time. Also, food items should be well covered with lids, or kept away at some far and safe place. Many of the contents of the bomb are inflammable, so it is best to keep inflammable substances at a safe distance too. If there are any utensils in the area where the bomb was used, clean them thoroughly. Also wash all the curtains and clothes, as a precaution. Whichever flea bomb you use, just make sure that all the precautions and instructions are properly read and followed.
There are many good brands available in the market. When using flea bombs, you should make sure that all the instructions are well followed, because the flea bomb contains many harmful chemicals, and so they are chosen over natural flea remedies by many. Flea bombs are available online, or at your pet store too. Some require you to ventilate the room for 2 hours and some for more duration. These flea bombs should be kept away from children and pets, as they contain harmful chemicals. Take a look at the list of some of the popular flea bomb brands given below.
