Flea spray for house is a cheap and effective method to get rid of fleas in house. You can either buy a flea spray from the supermarket or make your own spray repellent. In this post, I’ll teach you to make a flea spray at home and give some opinions on popular spraying products on the market.
Homemade Flea Spray
Although there are many products on the market, I prefer using homemade flea spray. Why?
First, because it doesn’t cost you too much money. Yeah, we want to get rid of these tiny creatures, but we also want to save our money. Second, homemade remedy for fleas don’t contain chemicals which are bad for your and your pets’ health. You don’t want to toxic your lungs by these chemicals, do you? Third, it’s very easy to make. With a few ingredients, you can make your own flea spray for house just in minutes.
Flea Spray For House – Natural Recipes
- Mixing 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water together. After that, put the mixture in a spray bottle and use directly on your pets’ fur. Use your hands to massage your pets, avoid sensitive parts like eyes or ears. Repeat the whole process for once or twice per weeks to get rid of fleas. In case your pets don’t like the spray bottle, you can use a comb, dip in the mixture and comb the fur completely. The smell of vinegar will vanish within an hour, so you don’t have to worry about it. Sometimes, cats don’t like vinegar smell and getting wet, so they will be reluctant to cooperate.
- Boil 1 litre of pure water, then pour it over some slices of lemons placed in a heat safe container. Leave it overnight and apply the mixture on your pets.
These treatments can be used for your house and pets. In order to use this method, you should buy a spray bottle. Don’t reuse the empty cleaner bottles in your house since it can possibly have harmful chemicals.
Flea Spray Products
As I say, I don’t like chemical flea spray products on the market, since they are mostly chemicals. But if you want to get fast results, you can buy these products. One thing to keep in mind is that, some products can only kill adult fleas. Even when you haven’t seen any fleas left, their eggs and larvae still live in your house and waiting to bring infestation back. (Adult fleas only account for 5% of the whole population). You need to buy a product that can kill fleas and other stages in their population.
Flea Spray For House – The Result
Flea spray is a quick method to approach fleas in house and on your pets. The result can be observed within 2 – 3 days. It works best for adult fleas, some products can inhibit eggs from hatching and larval development.
Nowadays, flea spray has lost its position to spot-on treatments such as Frontline, Advantage… which are used directly on the should blades of your pets and the result lasts for at least 1 month. However, spot-on treatments are chemicals too, so they can possibly bring side effects such as vomiting or diarrhea.
