What Do Fleas Look Like?
Fleas are very small parasites that are about 2.5 mm in size and feed on the blood of their host. They are yellowish to dark brown in color depending on if they have just fed.
Their torso is very flat and they have very long hind legs that they use to jump from host to host. They can jump about 6-8 inches high.
Their bodies are also covered in hair that serves to root them to the host. Adults have mouth parts which are used to extract the host’s blood.
The flea’s back legs are also designed to propel the flea forwards through the animal’s fur at high speed, which helps the insect parasite to evade the teeth and claws of the animal host as it attempts to remove the flea through biting, chewing and scratching activities.
Fleas are commonly visible moving in infested pet’s fur. Their presence may be marked by reddened skin.
“Adult fleas are approximately 2.5 mm long and are dark in color, ranging from brown to reddish brown. Fleas are wingless, although they are capable of jumping large distances from host to host as a result of their six long legs. Individual fleas are difficult to kill by hand and typically require chemical treatment.” orkin.com

Home Remedy Flea Inspection
There are some inexpensive ways to inspect for fleas just by using items that you already have in your home.
First, if you have pets you will want to inspect them for fleas or evidence of fleas. All you need is a comb and a bowl of soapy water.
Comb through your pets coat and see if the comb picks up and fleas. If so, then place the fleas in the soapy water so they die.
If you don’t find any fleas look for evidence of fleas. Redness of the pets skin is one sign and also flea dirt. Flea dirt looks like coffee grinds.
If you find flea dirt then place it in the soapy water and if it turns a reddish color then it is a good sign of fleas on the pet.
One of the best ways to check for fleas is by setting up a trap. All you will need is a bowl of water mixed with any type of dish soap. Just mix 2 tablespoons of dish soap in a bowl filled with water. Place the bowl next to a window. A sliding glass door that lets light into your home is ideal for this.
The fleas will be attracted to the light and will get trapped in the soapy water and die. This is a great way to determine if you in fact dealing with fleas but also can help you determine if you have a bigger flea infestation than expected. The more fleas dead in the trap usually means a larger infestation.
How To Get Rid Of Fleas
The first thing that you will need to do is prepare the area for treatment. This includes removing all the clutter from the floors. Remove all bed and mattress sheets and coverings from the mattress and or box springs. Make sure that all carpeted floor mats have been vacuumed and placed in a plastic garbage bag and tie it in a knot and place it outside.
If you have pet beds, pet crates you can also vacuum them as well because there is a good chance that there could be flea eggs in those items as well.
Try not to just take the area rugs and pet beds and shake them outside because the eggs could spread to the outer areas of the home where the flea eggs could hatch and start an infestation in the outer areas of your home.
Next, if you have carpeted floors in the rooms you will need to vacuum the carpeted floors. Vacuuming the floors on a daily basis has been proven to remove 50% of the flea eggs.
Once you are finished vacuuming please empty the vacuum bag in an outside garbage can or dumpster. If you have a vacuum that uses canisters just dump the canister outside and wash it out in hot water or wipe down with alcohol. This will prevent flea eggs from spreading to other areas of the home.

You will want to start treating the areas where your pets spend the most time in. The fleas are attracting to carbon dioxide. Whenever pets and humans exhale, we release carbon dioxide into the air and this is how fleas find their food source.
Fleas Will Set Up Shop Close to the Food Source.
Start off by spraying Green Bean Buddy directly on the mattress. Spray the top, bottom and sides of the mattress including the “seam”. Focus on the corners that are close to the headboard area or where your head and shoulders usually lie on the mattress. Also, if you have a mattress that has a rope on the sides that is used as a handle, make sure to spray that and the holes where the rope goes into the mattress because the bed bugs love to hide in there.
Treat the box spring in the same way but focus on turning the box springs on it’s side and spray from underneath the box spring. This is the area where you will see the actual frame of the box spring and it will look like wooden planks.
Fleas could hide in these areas so make sure you complete a thorough treatment. Check the outer corners of the box springs for a piece of plastic. These are called bumpers..Gently pull the bumpers back with your fingers and spray in there as well.
Next, outline the baseboards of the all the rooms where you and your pets spend the most time. You will need to create a perimeter of Green Bean Buddy so the bed bugs can’t escape. Once the fleas come in contact with Green Bean Buddy they will die of dehydration.
Focus Your Treatment on the Areas Where the Pets Spend the Most Time.
This includes pet beds, pet crates, couches, recliners, and area rugs.
Spray those areas with Green Bean Buddy flea killer and let the product dry for about 30-45 minutes before using. This will make sure that the oil will dry and the residual will create the barrier around these areas which will cause the fleas to die.
