Vacuuming will pick up most of the fleas in your carpets or on hard floors. What will keep their eggs from hatching? Combine one cup borax, one cup baking soda and one cup table salt. Sprinkle this all over your carpets, brush it down into the fibers and leave it overnight. The next morning you should run the vacuum cleaner. The borax and the baking soda kill the fleas, and the salt dehydrates the eggs. Repeat this procedure within 30 days, then as needed. Best of all, it is non-toxic.

Each female flea can produce 40 to 50 eggs a day. That’s up to in their lifetime. Flea larvae burrow deep into fabrics, bedding and carpeting, so thorough, regular vacuuming and cleaning of your pet’s bedding (in very hot water) is recommended.
