Catch Fleas in your Home

Put shallow bowls of warm water with a dash of Dawn liquid detergent (do not stir) on the floor under lamps (set the lamps on the floor too). If you have fleas in your house, they will gravitate to the warmth of the light bulbs and jump in the water. The detergent will drag them into the water to drown. Leave it overnight, you'll be surprised how many you have in the morning!

I also keep a deeper bowl with the detergent and HOT water beside me when combing my pets. If any fleas jump, they will migrate to the water. When I pull the comb off with the fleas on it, I hold it over the water and scrape them off the comb. You can see the little buggers float to the bottom.

I do the same thing. Having a major problem due to the abandoned house next door with sky high grass that has not been cut in 3 or more years. I have a bowl outside with Dawn in it to pick the fleas off before coming in the house. Then I have one in the bathroom to make sure I got all of them.

I use a sprayer outside with water and Dawn to spray the yard. The house next door has really done me in the last few years. I have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on Capstar to help my 3 dogs and 7 cats. I try to do everything I can. I don't like the stuff you put on the pets shoulder blades. Everyone of my babies get sick from it. I pray one day I can get a handle on all of it.

We have had so much rain that my yard has flooded several times in the last few months. I have also bought lots of flea traps and have them all over the house...one of my babies if the picture comes out.

Isn't that sink to the bottom? :-)
