Fleas in Carpet

To get rid of fleas in your carpet, sprinkle salt on it and let it sit over night. Vacuum it up in the morning and the salt kills any fleas in your carpet.

Fleas in Carpet- important note on diatomaceous earth

Ad

I have just done some research on diatomaceous earth, recommended by someone on your site, and need to add a very important note to their suggestion, that it can be purchased at pool product suppliers.

The natural product is apparently very good and safe, HOWEVER, the stuff sold for pools is treated in some way that makes it toxic to humans. I quote:
"FYI": Diatomaceous Earth sold for swimming pool filters is dangerous to human health, your pets, and livestock. It has been chemically treated and heated to change it's composition."

So please don't buy it from a pool place. There are a number of diatomaceous earth products. One which also has pyrethrin is called "Perma Guard" or "D20 Pet and Animal". There is also "fossil shell flour" which is the natural form and totally safe even if ingested (in fact it is included in animal foods to treat animals). Hope that helps. There are some good websites to view. (03/25/2008)

Yes, mothballs in your vacuum bag will work wonders and keep your house flea free with the use of a flea medication such as Revolution or Advantage. (07/31/2009)
