Borax fleas your best defense
Borax fleas is your best defense in removing Fleas from your house. As many of you including myself have spent a fair amount of time and money trying to get fleas out of our house and off our pets and living with my wife and her four cats and a dog,I have been more than one instance where I have had to fend of fleas. Over the years I have tried everything sprays, bombs and powders with very little results. Not only were these a waste of time but also money and I hate wasting money. Which I’ve always return to borax. Using Borax for fleas time and time again is never let me down. The hardest part when using Borax is the preparation and effort one has put in not when applying and then cleaning up afterwards.All you have to here is just vacuum and we all vacuum anyway so there’s really no different.
How does Borax fleas work:
Commercial borax like what you would buy from a department store , hardware store or online is partially dehydrated. This is what kills fleas. As they come in contact with it ,it dries out there bodily fluids until they are dead. Which is ironic as they themselves feed on cats and dogs and humans by sucking blood from the them, borax sucks the life out of them.
Using Borax to kill fleas is not only an effective way of eliminating unwanted pests but is also a very cheap alternative method instead of having in professional exterminator spray your house. I have used Borax to kill fleas three out of the last four years and have yet to have to use or find anything else to eliminate them from my house. But this is not a one time shot deal. Usually takes 2 to 3 applications to get rid of all of the fleas and their eggs. Although I do have a tendency to go a little overboard so it may only take you one or two depending on how bad they are .
Is Borax safe around my family and pets:
Yes and no, yes it is safer then say using a flea bomb or a flea spray. Then answer would be yes. No being it is not recommended for not only humans but for pets to ingest Borax in even small quantities. Which is difficult if a pet would come in contact with Borax on their feet or as they groom themselves. it is not poisonous but not recommended. I also use gloves when handling borax as it will dry out your skin and can cause redness and irritation .The best recommendation that I would make and this is what i do is keep your family members and pets out of a room with you have applied Borax to for at least 48 hours.
Borax fleas has been one of the best methods that I personally have used to get rid of fleas in my house.
