Fleas are attracted to light, so here’s a few simple, DIY flea trap ideas to help you keep your sanity. The whole idea of the lighted flea trap is to “lure” the fleas into the liquid and then, they won’t be able to get out!
Near a lamp, set out a glass bowl filled with a few inches of soapy water.
- Instead of soap, add cooking oil.
- Instead of a water solution, use rubbing alcohol (it kills on contact!).
Note: I know that waking up to a bowl of dead fleas is gross, but this is war! And folks, war ain’t pretty!
