Fleas can drive a pet owner to distraction. It’s not just your pet scratching. An infestation can quickly get to the point when the fleas are hopping on you too. But apart from using toxic chemicals in sprays and foggers, what can you do to get rid of the flea problem in your home? There are various natural alternatives to poisonous pesticides, some of which are more effective than others.

This Fleabusters treatment is based on borate powder, which dehydrates the fleas and larva, killing them without any chemicals. It has to be dusted and brushed into all the floor areas of your home, which can be a bit of a laborious process, and dusty too, but once you’ve applied it, the powder will carry on working for at least a year, preventing re-infestation.

It usually takes a few days to a couple of weeks to get rid of the fleas completely, as new eggs will still be hatching out, but the wait is worth it to be flea free in the end! It’s a bit expensive, but the 3lb container will easily treat a three bedroom home completely and shouldn’t need re-application for at least a year. There are many testimonials to its effectiveness from customers, but a very few for whom it didn’t work. If you are being driven crazy by fleas, this would be the first natural solution to turn to.
