This year has been one of our busiest flea seasons. Everyday we are receiving multiple calls for flea infestations.
If your getting bitten and suspect you may have fleas there is a simple way to monitor your own house.
Get a bowl and fill it with water. Add a couple of drops of washing up liquid. The washing up liquid breaks the surface film of the water.
Now a small heat source needs to be placed in or above the water. A tealight candle works well placed in the middle of the bowl. An alternative is an angle poise lamp positioned to shine on the water.
The heat source will attract fleas over in search of a meal. They will jump in the water and drown.
This method will not remove an entire population from a property but will diagnose the cause of any bites.
