I found an easy cheap way to combat flea in the carpet while researching online and it really worked! At the time I had one yorkie and four cats between 2 houses all infested, but not anymore!
First you are correct- put the Frontline on your kitten a few days before using the Borax treatment- Borax can be found in the Laundry Soap aile of the grocery store- Cheap!
Fleas can quickly become a problem for not just your pet but your entire household. A flea infestation usually requires treating large areas of your house with special purpose chemicals, many of which are expensive and inconvenient. In this how to you will learn how to use borax, which is both cheap and easy to use, to treat your home for fleas.
Things You’ll Need:
Borax, broom, vacuum
Step1-Locate areas where fleas are most likely to nest, these are locations you will want to target with borax. Carpets, rugs, behind and underneath furniture, these are all potential flea nesting areas and locations to treat with borax. - I played it safe and did ALL the carpets and rugs!
Step 2-Carry out a spot test on your carpet. Sprinkle a small amount of Borax on a small section of carpet and allow it to sit for a short period of time. Check the carpet for a change of color or any other damage that the borax might do to your carpet. If the borax appears to alter your carpet in any way do not use it.
Step 3-Shake borax over the area you would like to treat. Do not use an excessive amount. A light dusting, enough to work into the material is more than enough.
Step 4-Work the borax into the carpet with a broom making sure all of it works down in between the fibers where fleas and their eggs are.
Step 5-Allow the borax to sit for at least 6 hours. During this time keep any children or pets you have away from the borax as it is toxic to them. Also avoid exposing the borax to any moisture. If the area you live in has high humidity do not allow the borax to sit for as long, as it will absorb moisture and make cleanup more difficult.
Step 6-Vacuum up the borax and dispose of it. Vacuum the area where you used the borax several time to make sure you have removed all of it. If your vacuum cleaner has a removable bag change the bag once you have finished picking up all of the remaining borax.
Whaa-Laa! No more fleas and a brighter cleaner carpet! Good luck!
