Borax comes as a dry product, and it can be raked into the carpet to help kill fleas by drying them out. Take care of fleas without using harmful chemicals with help from a pest control operator in this free video on flea control and extermination.
Hi friends, I'm Mark Govan here with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida and people wonder well how about using Borax to treat fleas inside the home? Well you know a lot of us have problems with fleas in and around the home and that Borax is actually a good product to use inside the home. Now Borax comes as a dry product and actually you put it out with a little shaker, you first of all want to vacuum all your carpets, your rugs, your bedding, you want to wash that the pet bedding, but then take the Borax and you will shake that out over the carpeted areas in and around the home and then you can use a light raking of that over the carpet. Now what that does is it drives that Borax into the fibers where the flea larva are and the actual fleas are living and once the pest picks up the Borax on their body, it as they move around, it actually etches into their skin and dries them out, it's like a desiccant. So it takes a little bit of time to work but it is a very good treatment and it is a product that you can use and be safe inside your home. So again a good way to take care of flea control without using any other chemicals, Borax is the way for you to go. I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida hoping you have a pest free day.
