    Why You Should Make A Mosquito Trap

    Fleabusters! If you have an infestation and want to get back to living normally, buy fleabusters and a plastic drop cloth and use that. I have two cats and love them unconditionally. I refused to use chemicals.I even used diatomaceus earth and it didn't do a thing. I didn't want to use anything that would compromise the health of my two furry friends. I was SO overrun with fleas. It was so bad you could liken it to a biblical scourge. I found fleabusters active ingredient, ortho-borax. A mild acid that kills the fleas where they are birthed - on the floor.

I found fleabusters active ingredient, ortho-borax. A mild acid that kills the fleas where they are birthed - on the floor. Still, I did not want my little friends to be affected by it. SOOoooo, I took a large spoon with holes in it. You know the kind you would use in cooking, like a slotted spoon but with holes instead. I would get a heaping spoonful of fleabusters and softly drop the spoon so through the holes a small amount would release into the shag. I did sections of carpet large enough that my plastic drop cloth would cover. After covering the powdered area with my drop cloth. I walked all over it for several minutes, getting the powder deep into the carpet. After, I vacuumed very well to get any loose powder up out of the pile. There will still be a small amount left behind below the pile (in my case, shag), definitely not enough to hurt my furry family members but enough to kill all the fleas.. I was overrun with fleas for months before going ahead with this solution. In 2 weeks, my house was totally cleared of them and my two little friends were not having to deal with them anymore. I cannot tell you the relief we experienced getting rid of those parasites.
