Flea Problem Inside And Outside Your Home? What You Should Do

Fleas are usually found in the yard or outside, but when they start coming inside, that's a big problem. Fleas will bite you, and they will bite your pets as well. They'll leave welts on your body that can be very itchy. On your pets, bites can leave welts and cause your cat or dog to scratch so much that they bleed or leave hot spots. If you have fleas, you need to get rid of them. Read on for tips on how to get rid of fleas in your yard and in your home.

Outside

Fleas in the yard can easily come into your home. They will jump onto your clothing or your shoes and come inside with you. They can also jump on your pets and get into your home as well. This is how they end up coming into your home. To get rid of them in your yard, you can sprinkle a granular pesticide in the yard around your home and follow the manufacturer's instructions to spread it properly and activate it (usually with a sprinkle of water). The pesticide will help kill fleas and other pests as well. You should also take good care of your yard by mowing it often and keeping it trimmed and cared for to prevent pests from getting into your yard in the first place. Also be sure to trim back overgrown landscaping in the yard, especially low-hanging trees and over-grown bushes or plants.

Inside

Inside your home you need to vacuum your carpeting to help suck up fleas in the carpet. Also vacuum all upholstered furniture in your home. Empty the canister of your vacuum or the bag of your vacuum outside the house and into a plastic garbage bag, which should be sealed up tightly to keep the fleas inside. Then you need to give any pets in your home a flea bath to kill any fleas on your pets. If you have to, take your pet somewhere to have this done. Finally, if you still have a problem with fleas, set off a flea bomb in your home. Vacuum your home thoroughly once the flea bomb is finished doing it's job. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the flea bomb to ensure it works properly.

If you have a flea problem in your home or in your yard, you need to get to work getting rid of these pests. Hire pest control services to help you if you cannot get rid of them on your own.
