The best part about this trap is that there are no chemicals to worry about your pets or small children coming into contact with.
Step 1: Things You Will Need
- A shallow bowl. I found that the cheap aluminum pie tins work great for this, but if you don't have one of those any shallow bowl will do until you get one.
- Liquid Soap
- enough water to fill the bowl about half to three quarters full
Step 2: Setup
Fill the bowl with the soapy water. Adding the soap to the water is essential for the trap to work properly, because the soap decreases the surface tension of the water so that once the fleas hop in they can not manage to swim back to the edge and crawl out.
set the light directly over the bowl a few inches from the surface.
You will find the most dramatic accumulation of fleas will occur overnight ,as long as you remember to leave the lamp on.
Step 3: Maintaining Your Flea Trap
This is the really hard part ...
Change the water once a day.
