Hi, I'm Trevor with Monster Pest Control, located in American Fork, Utah. We're talking today about ridding your house of insects. The topic is how to rid your house of fleas naturally. A couple of things when you're doing with the naturally you can use diatomaceous earth, and with the diatomaceous earth you go around window seals, you treat around all the window seals, doorways, as well as baseboard areas; treating all of those areas, and also treating your pets, animals, cats. All of this, making sure that you're always mindful, especially being inside, of any aquatic animals, fish or birds. Cover them and or shut off their motors. Also, with fleas you need to make sure you vacuum very thoroughly around all the crevices in your carpeted areas. You can rub the diatomaceous earth into the carpet as well, but making sure you vacuum it. Generally, you want to leave the house for a few hours after you've done any of this treatment; try to minimize your steps walking on the carpets.
