- Clean thoroughly. Fleas love to hide in carpets, bedding, and other soft surfaces. To get rid of them, start by vacuuming thoroughly, especially in areas where your pet spends a lot of time. Then, wash all bedding and other soft surfaces in hot water.
- Use natural flea repellents. There are a number of natural products that can help to repel fleas, such as cedar chips, citrus peels, and lavender oil. Place these products in areas where your pet likes to spend time, or apply them directly to your pet’s fur.
- Use a flea comb. A flea comb is a great way to remove fleas and flea eggs from your pet’s fur. Comb your pet regularly, paying special attention to areas where fleas are likely to hide, such as the ears, neck, and tail.
- Bathe your pet. Bathing your pet in warm, soapy water can help to remove fleas and flea eggs. You can also add a natural flea repellent to the water, such as lavender oil or apple cider vinegar.
- Treat your yard. If you have a yard, you’ll also need to treat it for fleas. This will help to prevent fleas from getting into your home in the first place. There are a number of natural products that you can use to treat your yard for fleas, such as diatomaceous earth or neem oil.
If you follow these tips, you can naturally and permanently eliminate fleas from your home. Just be sure to be consistent with your treatments, and to be patient. It may take some time to get completely rid of fleas, but it is possible.
