On the other hand, the chances of flea infestation occurs if you have bought a new home and you've moved in. An empty property is also home to fleas. You never know where you can find these annoying fleas. One, out of all these possibilities is the reason why you have fleas in your house when there are no pets.
Getting Rid of Fleas
Before the infestation becomes an unmanageable task, it's important to take prompt action at the earliest. You don't want the fertile fleas to start laying eggs and making an army. So before the eggs have the chance to hatch and hide in every corner of your house, implement some steps immediately.
3. Replace the vacuum bags, and repeat the vacuuming and cleaning process after a week or 10 days. If all the eggs or pupae (fleas in cocoon form) weren't removed, you need to follow the sanitation process one more time.
4. Now we will use the flea spray that has adulticide and larval growth inhibitor which can easily get rid of the flea infestation. Make sure you close all the doors and windows, close the vents, and ask everyone in the house to stay out for at least 3―4 hours.
6. Here's another way to sanitize your carpets, rugs, cushions, and curtains. Make a powder of borax and salt, and sprinkle this mix on everything you want to clean. Leave the items as they are overnight or 1 day, and then vacuum everything clean. The flea eggs will die due to this mix, and you can easily vacuum it out. Change the vacuum bags.
Another good and effective remedy is making a flea trap. You make a flea trap by placing honey on a Styrofoam plate and keep it where you think maximum number of fleas are.
Place the cover of a table fan on top and leave the plate alone overnight. The next morning, you'll see fleas stuck in honey. Discard the plate, make a fresh new trap, and repeat. You will definitely catch fleas this way.
Now although the techniques mentioned are effective, the chances of flea infestation can reoccur. Which is why, you need to keep your house and the surrounding sanitized. Follow a regular cleaning and sanitizing schedule so that you can avoid any further flea re-infestation.
