Flea control with Borax powder
Submitted by Cece
I found that by sprinkling "Borax powder" it got rid of fleas in the carpet.
Borax powder -
The following was sent in by anon
Borax is deriven from the sodium family like salt. Fleas have exoskeletons
just as ants do. What happens when you pour salt on a slug?? IT WITHERS UP AND
1) Run the vaccume, the vibrations will cause any eggs to hatch.
2) sprinkle borax all over carpets, Then work it into the carpet with a broom.
Let it set over night (at the least 4-6 hrs)
3)Wash all bedding/ throw rugs, pet beds in borax and laundry soap.
4) After the Borax has set on carpets for4-6 or over night sweep it up.
DONT FORGET TO EMPTY SWEEPER OR CHANGE BAG AND TAKE IT OUT OF THE HOUSE!!
Repeat in two weeks.
I as well as my daughter are allergic to fleas, we had carried them in on our
shoes and this does work!!
