Fleas pose a hazard to your pet as well as to your home. You can begin to keep them way by keeping your pet well-groomed. This includes combing his or her fur regularly and drowning any fleas that you find in soapy water. Treating your pets with a flea control product, which your veterinarian can help you to select, is also a very important part of keeping your animals and your home free of fleas.
Vacuum regularly to pick up tiny flea eggs, and keep your pet's bedding area clean. Place eucalyptus leaves throughout your home and yard. Just a few leaves in each room and outside can give off enough of a smell to discourage fleas from entering the space. Furthermore, because the microscopic nematode worm eats the larvae of fleas, a spray of these organisms outside can significantly reduce the present flea population.
