    Catch 50 Fleas in One Night

    Sorry ben..but you are wrong. You caught that many because your house is totally infested (dangerously so) not because of your set up. fleas are REPELLED by light. The prefer the dark crevices of carpets. They ARE attracted to warmth, which is why they jump onto animals in the first place. (Animals don't emit light, in case you were wondering.) Incandescent lights work because the heat they give off overcomes their dislike of light. But with small night lights or LED bulbs that stay cool, any fleas you catch will be simply from them jumping around normally to get around. You would do just as well to simply leave the plate on the floor by itself
