    V'nut-Beyond Redemption's Note:

    I used the method to reduce the flea population in my den after it exploded. Didn't want to use that much Frontline or the bug bombs. I DID use Frontline but just 3 or 4 squirts. Less chemicals in my house, the better.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    applica ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup warm water
    • 1 -2 teaspoon dish laundry detergent

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a big plate into the area of infestation (I used a big plastic dinner plate 1 cm deep) Mix warm water and detergent and pour into plate.
    2. 2
      Place plate in a safe place away from children or pets.
    3. 3
      The fleas will be attracted by the warm water, jump into the mixture and drown as there is no surface tension (the detergent took care of that)
    4. 4
      No one and no pets were allowed in my den when I was using this method.
    5. 5
      Changed it 2-3 times a day until infestation has been reduced.

      I used this treatment years ago, it was recommended that you have a light shining down on the water to attract the fleas during the night ( used a desk lamp).My DH questioned how the fleas would know to go to that room, so I made a big sign saying " Fleas -- this way". Don't know if it was the sign or the light but we sure caught alot of them.

      I have used this for years and while it won't rid the house completely of fleas, it sure does help. I use foil pie pans, put a few drops of dish liquid (don't use citrus scent of any kind), put some water in it, swish it around and put it under a night light. I've used it on hard wood floors as well as carpet. If your dogs have fleas, you can soap them up with Dawn dish liquid, let it sit a couple of minutes and they wash right off! I prefer it to pesticides on my pups!

      Don't use lemon soap. It repels fleas.
