How do you get rid of fleas when you have cats?

Different Ways to Get Rid of Fleas

Fleas are likely to be a problem at some point if you have a cat, especially one that goes outdoors. If you have a cat that remains indoors, you are less likely to have the problem. How can you get rid of fleas? There are several ways, so let’s have a look at some of the more successful:

  • Flea Powders: have a look around and you will find many flea powders that claim to get rid of fleas successfully. However, these tend to include some rather nasty chemicals as ingredients, and a further problem is that they do not always get rid of the eggs. Fleas breed very quickly, so while you kill the first wave, others will hatch.
  • Flea Bombs: this method extreme infestations, as it involves filling your home with a chemical cloud designed to kill the fleas. Once again, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, and it won’t necessarily get rid of the eggs.

There are others – and it is recommended you apply a regular flea solution to your cat – but what if you are one of the many who doesn’t want to use chemicals? There is another solution.
