Flea infestation is a natural process that occurs when an insect reproduces. Fleas are small insects that reside in your skin and can be seen when they wander on your body.
It takes a few days for the fleas to reproduce, so during this time they must be located, it is then necessary to treat them. Most places use the famciclovir, a antiviral drug that prevents the fleas from multiplying and spreading.
However, some use bifenthrin, a dipthamicide drug that disrupts the stages of flea life-growth and dropsy. These two drugs work in unison to kill the fleas completely! Either can be used as a first line of defense against fleas, however, it depends on whether or not you have already been treated for them.
Understand how fleas work
Fleas are a very unique insect. Most insects fall into one of two major groups, those that fly and those that walk. Fleas are the most notable exception as they can both walk and fly.
Fleas are known for their ability to re-attach themselves to a host in a very unique way: They use blood as a source of nutrition. When a flea has fed, it will stick to the same spot on your body until it is either removed or it becomes infested with more fleas.
This process can take months, even years! It is extremely rare for people to find and remove a flea because you will always have to keep an eye out for it to re-attach itself.
Understand how home defense works
When a house is attacked by a hoard of fleas, the owner can choose to defend your home with a lot of bedding, complex systems, or even warfare.
Many times it is cheaper to just put up signs and organize patrols to keep the fleas at an advantage. Many times they will just lay eggs and forget about the house once they leave.
Home defense is very cost effective as it works for many years. When there are young people in the household such as teens or someone who is in charge of defense such as an adult, going up on guard can be more effective.
Many times companies offer contracts where you can go up on defense for a few weeks at a time. You can get your privacy back and still receive your benefits from this system.
Having a dog or a child is important when it comes to preventing house pets from being shielded by a cat or dog who wanders into the home.
When dogs have hierarchy, which animals they consider leaders, then closing off rooms and placing objects in them can help keep the dog as isolated as possible.
The same goes for children, with leadership coming from parents and teachers. If there is a leader who gets special attention, then this person should be separated from the others to prevent any sort of dominance or infection.
If you are looking at getting a pet, you are looking at something very expensive, are you not? Fortunately for you, we have some tips here that can help save money and get you onto the pet market on your first try.
Wash all bedding
Doubtfully ever heard of it? Then you should! Wedgewood’s Asch, or dust, the cycle of bedding in the flooring system, is a perfect medium for flea.
Asch is an expensive material to use, but it does make your bed more vulnerable to fleas. When placed in a rented or home-ownership situation, the owner can ensure that the fleas do not leave behind as many trappings of ownership as they have in this temporary home.
By washing all of your bedding and putting on an old pair of clothes when starting treatment, you are taking care of yourself and your pets. You also have more control over how much treatment you give since you will have less to dispose of.
Start as soon as you get out of bed in the morning, and keep going until treatment is complete.
Use flea bombs
Flea bombs are a great way to stop and go against the flow of the flea population. There are many varieties of flea bombs and recipes, so we will not go into great detail about them.
Instead, we will discuss how to make your own!
There are two main components of a fleabomber: an active ingredient and the packaging. The packaging can be paper, plastic, or even clay. These materials retain their effectiveness longer than something inconclusive like hot pepper spray or an insecticide cream.
The ingredients of a fleabomber are: boric acid, liquid castor oil, and bacitra seaweed. These four elements work in unison to create your bomb’s matrix. When these four elements meet together in your bomb, they create an effective barrier against the Flea Beetle.
Use natural methods
Although it may seem unusual, some people have had great success using coffee grounds as a flea preventer. coffee grounds can be used as a dusting powder, so you can cover the floor in your home in order to reduce flea exposure.
This method is not for the faint of heart, however. You must actually carry around a jug of coffee grounds in case of a flea infestation!
Some people have reported that their dogs did not like the taste of the coffee grounds, which is why there were some failed applications.
Talk to your neighbors
Another way to prevent a cat in the house from being bothered by a wasp or beetle is to talk to your neighbors. There are many ways to know when a wasp or beetle is unwelcome and the best time to visit is when there are people around!
Did you see that wasp or bee yesterday? If so, then your neighbors probably saw it too. By chatting to your neighbors, you may be able to get them to help control the wasp or beetle.
naïvely believe that if two insects meet, the more insect will win and go away. However, this does not always happen and some insects can be friendly.
Wasps will often sting if they feel threatened.
Get a dog
A dog is a marvelous creature. He or she can fight fleas, get rid of them and return him or her to the house to fight them off again.
If you are not already have a dog, get one as soon as possible. Having a dog gives you two things: pride in your ability to defend your home and fun in watching him or her work.
It may cost money to buy a dog. You will need to feed, shelter, and care for the dog as if he or she was your own. For example, you must find a place for the dog to go when it gets tired, play with it often enough to keep it happy, and take care of it when it gets sick.
However, in order for him or her to stop fighting the fleas, you must also get them vaccinated against canine leptocooapqueacilis (calicivirus) and beable to take good care of yourself enough to receive the vaccine.
