  • Get Rid of Fleas While You Sleep

    Thanks a lot for your advice. Changing water twice a week is definitely much easier than everyday. I'll continue to have the light on 24 hours a day. Wish myself luck to eventually see the end of this miserable health problem. Thanks again for your guidance.Kindest regardsCarol

  • Get Rid of Fleas While You Sleep

    Sorry I am back to ask a few questions. I thought I am almost done with this bug issue. I had a haven 24 hours without a single new burning itching bite and even let my guard down sleeping without socks. However it started to attack my hands and wrist area when I picked up something from the carpet. I was shocked because I have the trap on 24 hours every day. I just cannot believe there are still some bugs/fleas alive. Anyway here's my question.1) Do I have to have the light on even during the day? I am just afraid my desk lamp would go bust soon because I have been had the light on day and night non-stop.2) Are fleas very fussy about having fresh soapy water to drink? There are still always plenty of water in the baking tray whenever I change it everyday. Can I change the water…

There are still always plenty of water in the baking tray whenever I change it everyday. Can I change the water once a week? I live in an old building so I always have to dump the water in the communal kitchen, it'll take me 4 or 5 trips to the kitchen to accomplish the task. In order to prevent spill water on the carpet I have to put the water in a jar with lid, which means I can't do it in one go.3) I don't know what kind of bugs in my room. What's the bugs/fleas life cycle like. How long do I have to use this trap after stop getting new bites?I think I am going to wear gloves to sleep from now on until the problem got resolved.

  • Get Rid of Fleas While You Sleep

    Thanks a lot for answering my question. I really appreciate it.I think the 1st night didn't work because I use a deep large square plastic washing bowl. I was afraid I might spill the water on the carpet. I live in a small room in a large shared accommodation. I have all my personal belongings piled up in the tiny space so cleaning is a difficult task.The 2nd night works better because I use a shallow large square baking tray. I can feel the difference because I got less bites. They used to attack my feet and legs, but now my arms, neck, face and upper body suffer because I wear socks and long trouser to protect my lower body. I sleep with scarf, socks, long sleeve and trouser last night. It was uncomfortable for summer nights. I also moved the baking tray from under my desk to …

I sleep with scarf, socks, long sleeve and trouser last night. It was uncomfortable for summer nights. I also moved the baking tray from under my desk to under my bed. I don't have a pet so don't know why suddenly I have fleas problems in my room. I've lived here for more than 2 years without any problem until a few weeks ago I started getting itching bites.I still can't see any of them when woke up in the morning. But I am very nearsighted.Again thank you for your help. I'll definitely continue doing it until all fleas are being kicked out of my room.
