I have a flea infestation! I got rid of my cats, but can’t get rid of the bugs. I thought I had most of them, but it seems that new ones have hatched(they are much smaller than the first round). I vacuum and I sprayed the furniture with an IGR insecticide. I am pregnant and don’t want to use too many chemicals in the house, but I have to get rid of the fleas. It seems we have more now than when I started. I bought one of the flea traps with the light and glue pad and that works well, but it is very localized, it doesn’t get them all. Can fleas breed if there are no animals in the house? I read that they lay eggs after a blood meal, does that mean human blood? I haven’t noticed them biting too much, though. Any suggestions? Any help is greatly appreciated!
I know fleas
I have had infestations several times.
Don’t waste money on the lamps. All they do is give the fleas enough light to find some food.
The problem with using one chemical[ yes, you HAVE to use chemicals-sorry] is, most chemicals do not kill fleas in all life cycles. One treatment may kill the fleas themselves but have no effect on the larvae or the eggs that have been deposited in your bedding, furniture and carpet.[yes! your bedding} So you may have eliminated the fleas…..but the eggs hatch, produce more larvae and…ad infinatum.
Find a treatment the will kill fleas AND their larvae.
The treatments I have used in the past and have been very successful with is to use a home spray- they sell many different brands in Lowes or Home Depot. One brand is Best Defense. As long as it states it is safe to use on furniture and carpet. I spray my carpet and furniture [ test for colorfastness].
Next day vacuum well.
This may need to be repeated several times.
In between I use flea bombs. Do not try to be skimpy with the bombs. After you open the house up, vacuum again.
This may need to be repeated. But one cycle usually gets all of the fleas. Make sure when you bomb your home,, you open drawers, remove bedding, open closet doors,etc.
After all is done, wash linens in hot water.
Since you are pregnant, you should have someone handling the chemicals.
You probably want to get this problem corrected before the baby arrives. You will have your hands full afterward.
I went on vacation and took my pets with me. But it was obvious on my return…I did not take the fleas. They stayed home and multiplied!! OMG! As I walked in…my feet were covered!!
PSS DO NOT use Sevin in the house.
You are pregnant and it is deadly to insects. It would be very foolish to use something like this around a growing fetus.
Shame on the person who suggested this!
