Ridding a House of Fleas

Rid your house of fleas with items you may have at home.

Items you will need.

  • a small bowl or pie pan
  • water
  • dish soap
  • a plain night light

Put a few drops of liquid dish soap into the bowl or pie pan and add a few ounces of water, place the bowl or pie pan just a few inches below the night-light. The night-light should be the only light on in the room at night. You may have to use an extension cord to lower the light, if so be sure to fix it so the cord will not fall into the water.


If you have small children, you will need to remove this while your infant is in the room. We sometimes put two of these lights in the same room. We don't have children at home so we leave the light on. You will need to change or add more water from time to time.

See if you can count the fleas in your bowl the next morning.
