Fleas in Curtains

Copyright © StopTheFleas.com, All Rights Reserved.

Last Updated: January 1st, 2015 Fleas love to infest and lay their eggs on pets, and carpets, but another often overlooked and untreated area where they infest is curtains. Curtains provide some of the perfect needs for fleas, such as dust accumulation and warmth from the sun as well as heaters in the winter season. In fact curtains are often the major source of flea infestation in the home, and it’s often the most overlooked area. So many folks hang their curtains, and hardly ever clean them. Curtains often become one of the dirtiest things in a home over time. They hang motionless for long periods of time, allowing dust, human skin particles and animal hairs to rapidly build up on them. Not only do fleas love curtains to hide in and infest, but mites do too. Curtains can easily becomes a major source of not just flea infestation but a major source of allergies. Cleaning and maintaining your curtain depends upon the type of material they are made of, and other things. First of all if you know the curtains are just some cheap material and you are not too worried about damaging them, take them down, and place them in a washing machine large enough to hold them. Your best bet in washing something as large as curtains is just take them to a laundry mat and use the large machines to wash them. Use any laundry soap that you normally use for washing clothes, and dry them until they are almost dry but not all the way. It’s better to hang curtains when they are slightly damp, so they stretch back out a little, and static does not stay in them from the dryer when they are still damp, this makes a lot less dust attract to them. If you are unsure about the material the curtains are made of, or if they are valuable, you may wish to contact a professional cleaner that does curtains, or take them to a dry cleaner for consultation and possible cleaning. Some curtains have tags on them, that tell you the exactly materials and methods they should be cleaned with, as well as the dryer settings. Once the curtains are rehung, you can gently mist the curtains with an organic (natural) flea killer, these types of sprays are the most gentle to fabrics as well as pets and people. Like using any product, first do a small spot test on a part of the curtain, to make sure the product will not cause it to stain or change the color, etc. Once you find a safe flea spray, gently mist your curtains as often as the product says to do so, and remember to wash your curtains on a regular basis, at least every quarter, to keep them smelling and looking fresh, and also flea free.

Fleas On Pets

Copyright © StopTheFleas.com, All Rights Reserved.

Last Updated: January 1st, 2015 Fleas feed on blood and love to live on the bodies of your pets. The furry exterior of pets makes an ideal living place for the fleas without them being detected. Fleas not only suck blood from the pets which can ultimately lead to anemia but fleas can also transmit diseases that can be very serious or even fatal. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to get rid of fleas from your pets before they infest your home or apartment, and your lawn. The first step towards this is to comb pets with a flea comb regularly. Place a small amount petroleum jelly on the comb, which would result in the fleas sticking to the tines of the comb. Check for areas between the toes, behind the ears, armpits and under the neck. Putting a white paper or white towel under the dog or cat while combing it would make the fleas more visible. If you notice that black specks are falling off or getting stuck to the comb tines while combing then you will know for sure it’s fleas. Dabbing the fleas with alcohol would immobilize them and then emptying the paper or towel in to a mug containing water will kill most of the fleas. The mug of water containing fleas should be flushed down the toilet or sink to prevent them from jumping out if they are still alive. Giving your pet a bath daily or regularly would rid your pet of fleas unless the infestation is too large. Fleas cannot live in water, so bathing your pet is very important. Using a flea shampoo as directed can also aid in ridding your pet of fleas, however, it is not recommended to use the flea shampoo on a daily basis. If you do not want to use chemicals on your pet, there is one solution that usually works well. Cut six lemons into halves, take a quart of water, steep a few hours and then strain the liquid into a spray bottle. Spritz your pet on the body with the liquid, avoiding the eyes. Other natural products like neem, cedar, eucalyptus and rosewood can also keep fleas at bay. However, the efficacy of these natural products is not very reliable when the flea problem is acute. If fleas have already infested your pet to an extreme level, then it’s essential that you take it to a vet. The vet may prescribe Insect Growth Regulators (IGR) sprays or foggers such as methoprene (Precor) or pyriproxyfen (Nylar), and insect development inhibitors (IDIs) such as lufenuron (Program) and prescription only IGR systemic products. These products are safe, non-toxic and environmentally safe. You may also use desiccants: Diatomaceous Earth and Boron. Desiccants are considered effective and inexpensive, and they are recommended. A single application of Imidacloprid (Advantage) and fipronil (Front-Line) can kill adult fleas in hours and keep your pet flea free for 1-3 months. A few drops of the formula applied to the shoulder of the pet spreads through the coat and kills fleas. These products have lower mammalian toxicity and are considered safer. ‘Pyrethrum’ based flea killers are useful for immediate relief from fleas. However, any use of chemicals on your pets should not be used without the advice of a vet. Cats can die if insecticide meant for dogs is used on them.

About Us

Last Updated: January 1st, 2015

This website was made because of a war that I was a soldier in. I did not want to join the war, in fact I had no idea there was going to be such a war, or that I would ever have a part in it, but like many soldiers of the past, I was drafted. I lived my life as a common man, trying not to bother anyone, I worked all my life, tried to keep my bills paid on time, and trying to be a good dad to my daughter. It was during these relatively calm years that the war broke out, and I suddenly found myself plunged into the battlefield. Was this war, Vietnam or Desert Storm ? No…. It was a war between me and millions of flea soldiers, yes fleas ! I had just moved into this apartment, it was all carpeted, and I thought it was the perfect place for me to live, hopefully the next several years. At first I didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary. Then the warm summer months came, and I started having an occasional flea hop on me. I would be watching tv, or standing by the kitchen counter, and there would be a flea landing on my arm, or some other place. I didn’t realize it at first, but these occasional fleas were just the scout troops, searching for the enemy. Soon they launched a full scale invasion of my whole apartment. I was now getting bit by fleas, and I constantly had them hopping and landing on me. I had no pets, so I wondered why there was fleas. Then I remembered that when I had first moved into the apartment, I had found some old cat food in the bottom of the cupboard under the kitchen sink, the tenant before me, had pets, I later found out he had cats. I went online to try to find a great resource about fleas, a site that would tell me everything I wanted to know about them, how long they live, the different types, the diseases or problems they can cause, how to get rid of them, and more. I found there was a lot of sites, that had bit’s and pieces of flea info, but not one really good total flea website. I decided I would build a flea site, a site that could help others that were plagued with fleas or had questions about them, like I did, and that is how this website came about.
