Home remedies for killing fleas include dish-washing liquid flea traps and table or sea salt. Effective home remedies not only get rid of fleas, but also prevents their recurrence.
A homemade flea trap requires dish-washing liquid, bowls, tea candles and warm water. The homeowner should partly fill bowls with warm water and a generous amount of dish washing liquid. The tea candles are to be lit and placed next to the bowls in the middle of every room in the home.
Salt dehydrates fleas and dries out their bodies, offering homeowners an inexpensive way to control fleas. A homeowner should grind salt to a fine powder and sprinkle over carpets in every room, leaving it standing for two days. Thorough vacuuming helps remove the salt particles.
