If fleas have taken over your home, consider Borax for flea control. Borax is an active ingredient in many commercial flea control sprays, helping to kill fleas by drying them out. It can cause minor skin, eye, and throat irritation, but is otherwise considered safe for your family and your pets. Effective over long periods of time, a single Borax treatment can continue to kill fleas and their eggs for up to a year. Just apply it to the dark parts of your home and let it take care of your flea problem.Insecticide Application - Once fleas become established in a home, insecticides are almost always needed to control them. Always read and follow label directions on the insecticide container. Other than the person performing the application, people and pets should be out of the house during treatment. People and pets should also remain off treated surfaces until the spray has dried. This may take several hours, depending on carpet type, ventilation and method of application. Opening windows and running the fan or air conditioner after treatment will enhance drying and minimize odor. Vacuum any Borax powder remaining on the furniture. Otherwise, let everything be for 24 to 36 hours after applying the Borax. After that, begin vacuuming as normal. This will dispose of any dead adult fleas and desiccated corpses. The Borax should remain active in your carpet for up to a year to control further infestations. However, if your carpet is washed or deep cleaned, it will be necessary to reapply the Borax to maintain the protection. You may also reapply Borax powder if it doesn't seem to maintain its efficacy after the initial application.Bio Spot Carpet Powder contains Nylar insect growth regulator and is used on carpets to kill fleas and ticks.
