HOW TO GET RID OF FLEAS

 A lot of pet owners have to face the problem of how to get rid of fleas from their pets at home. Fleas are a very destructive pest that can ruin your pets' health and the quality of life of your family if not dealt with properly. They can easily become one of the most annoying issues in your home as they have an insatiable appetite for any meat or food source available around them. Fleas thrive on human hair, skin and hairballs so they are easily attracted to people who are allergic to flea bites and are infested with them.

Flea life cycles can last anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of months but a common factor among all fleas is that they need to breed before they die. The female flea feeds on blood and excretes it on her abdomen where the male flea feeds. The female flea lays her eggs that hatch into larvae and then eventually turn into adult fleas that feed and multiply.

To prevent a fully fledged flea infestations, only females have to be controlled at this stage of the life cycle. Knowing the adult flea life cycle will help you easily get rid of fleas in your pets and avoid further infestations by using natural flea control products like baits and sprays. Natural products also have proven to be very effective in the control of fleas, helping the household stay healthy and safe for everyone. These products should be used in conjunction with a thorough check-up and routine bathing of your pets.

Baits can be used to effectively control the growth of flea products in the house. Most common baits used include boric acid, hydrogen peroxide, or pyrethrum. The chemical ingredients in these baits are very gentle to humans as well as pets and do not cause any health risks. You can use different types of bait to effectively target different areas of your home depending on the location of the infestation as well as many different flea species have different patterns of breeding.

Spray sprays are also very effective and do not cause any risk to human health. However, because of their chemical content, these sprays should not be used on pets. You can use these spray sprays as part of your regular flea control program to keep fleas away from your home.

There are a number of flea control products available in the market today that are designed to be applied directly onto your pets as well as on the infested area in order to control fleas from breeding. The effectiveness of these products largely depends on the strength of the formulation used. It is also essential that you consult your veterinarian before using any of these so that you know what the correct dose for your particular pets should be.
