In wanting help and advice to get rid of fleas within your house, you may really feel at a loss for sheer numbers and feeling pretty desperate, particularly if you have been in the midst of an infestation. But, you are not alone and help is at hand that will allow you to get them gone quickly and efficiently providing you are thorough inside your approach.

Eliminating fleas within your house is not something that you will necessarily want to share or particularly broadcast but, far more individuals are having to do that than you may imagine, as we have become more pet orientated and live active, outdoor lives.

Psychologically I believe that we immediately have images of being dirty and unclean at the idea of getting them either indoors or on your cats, dogs, or even rabbit or chickens. It is not important, clean or otherwise the deciding factor amounts to something and one thing only and that's food. Fleas survive on blood and so most animals and humans too would be the victims of choice use a good meal.


The life cycle of a flea experiences four stages from egg, larva, pupa and finally adult so that as with most creatures they've developed some incredible strategies which allow these to survive and procreate at the most effective times.

Most fleas will expend winter within the larva or pupa form because the best time for survival and growth for them is during spring or, if conditions are right warmer, wetter winters. Although adults cannot lay eggs or survive with no blood meal they are able to live up to annually without feeding, the industry pretty sobering thought.

Which is why, if your house continues to be empty after a long holiday or vacation, that any eggs and larva that were left behind will stay in a state of limbo until a food source is available. So, just you and your family and any pets return imaginable the horror when all of these newly hatched adults emerge to feed.

To make sure you have them gone for good, it truly is absolutely vital that you 1. Cope with and kill the adults and a pair of. Stop the eggs and larva from developing further to result in you even much more of an issue.

You can do this very easily by adopting a hard hitting approach and by putting down flea traps to handle the adults and using your vacuum you have that aspect sorted. Using powders and sprays indoors they will cope with the eggs and larva too.

Your animals will need attention as will their bedding and taking advantage of powders, drops and collars in it and putting their sleeping stuff with the washing machine on a hot wash you'll be on the right path to getting eliminate fleas within your house.
