Many of us sleep with our pets, but should
we sleep with their fleas? - get rid of
the little suckers!

how to get rid of fleas in my bed

A recent survey of cat owners in England found that 44% of respondents sleep with their cats.

A similar survey by the American Pet Products Manufacturers' Association found that 42 percent of dog owners spend their nights snuggled up with their dogs.

It is fair to say that a similar percentage sleep with both their cat and their dog!

Cats and dogs which go outside are cats and dogs that will eventually pick up fleas. And chances are, that if you landed on this page, your pet has already picked them up and you just want to be rid of them out of your bed.

There is no quick fix in getting rid of fleas in your bed or anywhere else inside and outside of your home for that matter. The reason for this is due to the nature of fleas and their four stage life cycle:

  • Eggs
  • Larvae
  • Pupae
  • Adult flea

If you are to be successful in your efforts to have a flea free bed, you need to have flea free pets along with a flea free home both inside and out. Please take a moment to read our articles on Fleas on Pets, Fleas in Furniture, Fleas in Carpets and Fleas in Lawns and Yards.

If you don't have time, just let me just say that only 5% of the fleas in and around your home will be on your pets the other 95% will be lurking around in various stages of development; in dark crevices, curtains folds and soft furnishings - they will also be in your car, lawns, gardens and yards.

Getting rid of fleas in your bed - lets get started

Step 1

Wash all your bed linen in very hot water and detergent.

Presumably you pet has its own basket to sleep in and well as your bed, so wash its bedding and blankets in very hot water and detergent as well as yours.

Step 2

Dry all bed linen in a clothes dryer and set it at the highest temperature allowed in accordance with care label instructions. Above 90 degrees Centigrade is best if permissible.

Dry your pets bedding in the same method as your own, when dry dust it with flea powder.

Step 3

Rewash and dry all your bed linen every 3 or 4 days to kill any newly adult hatched fleas which may have slipped the net. Continue to do this until you are on top of the flea infestation.

Rewash and dry your pet's bedding every 3 or 4 days as well.

Step 4

Sprinkle your mattress with boracic acid powder and leave on for 24-48 hours before vacuuming off.

Step 5

Spray your mattress with a natural pesticide to kill and repel any future fleas. Please take a moment to read our page on Home Flea Remedies and peruse our Stop The Fleas Products page. There are 64 different "only natural" flea control/prevention products listed on Stop The Fleas Products. All are safe to use around children and pets and can be ordered online from this website.

Step 6

Turn your vacuum cleaner into a flea killing machine with this innovative system that uses a vacuum attachment and all natural "kill pellets".

FleaVac System with Vacuum Attachment & 2 Kill Pellet Pucks

Your Vacuum cleaner is your greatest weapon against fleas in your bed, under your bed and in your home. Vacuum daily until you are sure you have the problem under control. A good idea is to put a flea collar inside the vacuum bag and once the bag is full, seal it and dispose of it off your property.

Summary

Getting rid of fleas in and around your home will take diligence on your part; this could take weeks or even months. You must take a 4-pronged approach, other wise you wont be successful:

  • Treat the fleas on your pets - we suggest the Only Natural Flea tag.
  • Control the fleas inside and outside your home by using chemical free and safe flea repellants.
  • Be systematic and regular in your chosen method of flea repellants.
  • Start now!

Caution

How to get rid of fleas in my home

Recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) research, indicates that 50% of American families use some type of chemical flea and tick control on their pets.

In so doing, they are unwittingly exposing millions of pets, kids and indeed themselves to toxic chemicals on a daily basis.

Plus there is a similar knock on effect for people who work in the pet industry, e.g. groomers and boarding kennels. If you are a member of one of these families, or you work in the pet industry, then you must watch the following video.

It is fair to say if 50% of American families are using chemical flea and tick control, then a similar yard stick can be applied to other countries, e.g. Canada, UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

The Desmond's family story about their distressed pets on video

The video below is well worth watching. The Desmonds administered a spot-on flea and tick control product to each of their five terriers. Within an hour of application all five dogs became sick ranging from vomiting to difficulty in breathing and one even had skin burns on its back. Watch their dogs' horrific experiences on video.
