How to bring fleas at a cat folk remedies

Seldom what kotovladelets did not face such problem as fleas. As a rule, all cats walking have these insects at least occasionally, on the street. However, and "stay-at-home" are not saved from similar risk: parasites often appear in the apartment on clothes and footwear of people. Therefore the question "how to bring fleas at a cat, without using medicine" - it is valid, one of the most burning.

Except advantage, chemical medicines can do to an animal serious harm, especially if it is about a little kitten or the feeding cat. Without saying that all these means cost expensive.


It is much simpler to prevent a problem, than to fight against it. Therefore regular house cleaning in which there lives a cat – not luxury, but vital need. The fact is that idea of the fleas living on cats – no more than the myth. Pets having a tail serve this insects no more than "restaurant", and there live fleas on firm, as a rule, the covered pile or fabric of a surface: in carpets, sofas, mattresses and just in cracks on a floor. For this reason at least once all these things need to be vacuumed and, whenever possible, to carry out damp cleaning.

It is necessary to shake out (and it is better to beat out) cat's laying, from time to time to erase them, to process antiparasitic means or broths of the frightening-off insects of plants.

Disinfection of the room

If fleas after all appeared, then damp cleaning, especially, is necessary. But it is necessary to carry out it at more difficult level. Similar disinfection in several stages becomes:

  • Vacuum carpets and all upholstered furniture, up to one and a half meters in height. Above a flea do not get, and here lodge in low padded stools and even cushions with great pleasure.
  • Beat out and wash a cat's laying. With covers and pillowcases of pillows on which the fluffy pet is in the habit to lie it is better to arrive in the same way.
  • For disinfection of upholstered furniture it is quite possible to use the iron with function of an otparivaniye. The main thing, make sure that similar "ironing" will not damage an upholstery.
  • Process if it is possible, the room means against insects, for example, "Dichlorvos" then densely close all doors and windows at several o'clock. In 3 – 4 hours the room will need to be opened and once again carefully to wash up.
  • If dry cleaning, for some reason, cannot be used, it is possible to use folk remedy. Dissolve laundry soap in warm water and add to it 100 – 200 grams of vinegar. Carefully wipe with this solution a floor and carpets. After cleaning close doors and windows and leave the room in such look for 5-6 hours. Certainly, animals for this time should be moved away from the room and it is better to use a gauze bandage.
  • Mix baking soda and salt in equal proportions and carefully rub this mix in pile of carpets. It is desirable, to leave carpets in such look for the night (10 – 12 hours if you carry out cleaning since morning). After that the room will need to be vacuumed once again, and it is possible to let the pet to a favourite chair again.

Whenever possible, it is better to use all methods. But, if time or other circumstances do not allow, it is possible to manage the vacuum cleaner and a damp rag. Though, of course, the result in this case will be not so impressive.

Certainly, it is necessary to carry out such "clear-out" together with processing of the cat. Otherwise, success will be short-lived: insects will get over from the pet's wool on a floor, and will be made a fresh start. (By the way, if to bring fleas at a cat, without carrying out full cleaning of the room, the result will be temporary too: the insects who remained in carpets will very quickly get over on an animal).
