While finding fleas on your carpet or your pet is still tolerable, finding them on your cozy and comfortable bed definitely isn’t. Moreover, these bloodsuckers can make it difficult for you to sleep comfortably. While it does require certain efforts to get rid of fleas from your bed, it isn’t completely impossible. The key is to begin the extermination plan as early as possible. This is an important step since fleas multiply at an alarming rate and can soon lead to a lot of problems.
You might consider your pets as a part of your family. This doesn’t mean however that they are to be made a part of your bed as well. Keep your furry friends out of your bed at least until the situation is under control. This will help you to carry out the Pest Control Barton process without the risk of more fleas attacking your area.
As soon as you find fleas, the first step that you must do is to strip all the sheets, blankets, pillowcases, comforters and put them into your washing machine. Washing and drying at the highest setting possible would ensure that the fleas are eradicated completely. Fleas can’t survive temperatures that are more than 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Hence, they tend to die at such high settings. There are also chances that the infestation has spread to your mattress.
Flea eggs do not stick to animal fur. Hence, they easily fall off of your pet’s skin. So, don’t be surprised if you find them on your carpets or anywhere around your house. These eggs can hatch anytime, giving rise to new fleas. Instead of sleeping with larvae, flea eggs, and pupae, it’s better to get rid of them. Vacuuming is a great way to eliminate fleas from mattresses or elsewhere. Repeating the process twice or thrice is also important to ensure there are no eggs left. Also, make sure to remove the vacuum cleaner bag outside the house so that any eggs don’t fall off inside by any chance.
No matter how hard you try, some fleas can still escape the vacuum and also hide in nearby cushions and carpeting, only to jump back again later on your bed. To eliminate their chances of doing so, it’s recommended to completely de-flea your mattress. Using boric acid is considered effective for the same but is also toxic in nature.
