How to Get Rid of Cat Fleas

Launder all pet bedding, including everything your pet comes into contact with. If possible, dry on the hottest setting for twenty minutes. This will exterminate adults, larvae, and eggs. Purchase a dehumidifier. Fleas necessitate 50% or higher moisture to survive. Keeping the humidity below 50% for two days will exterminate adult fleas and larva while keeping eggs from hatching. Vacuum the home, paying particular attention to areas with little exposure to sunlight. Prune lawns and dispose of weeds. Bathe your pet(s). Give your pet(s) a flea bath. Purchase a flea collar for each of your pets.
