If you want to catch fleas in your house, but are not sure how to do it, you can try a flea trap. Flea traps work by trapping fleas by emitting light. Light attracts fleas because they like light and warmth. These fleas then jump to the light, where they fall into a sticky trap. You can also use electric flea traps, which emit heat and pull fleas from hiding places. If you don’t want to invest in an electric trap, you can also use a regular trap, but only use it if you have a large flea population.
Another method is using a votive or tea light. A votive or tea light will attract fleas, which will then fall into the trap. Place the trap away from any flammable materials, such as cigarettes. Although fleas do not live on humans, they can bite humans. They lack a substantial coat, so they cannot reproduce without the protection of human skin.
Flea light traps use yellow-green light. This type of light attracts fleas better than white light. Some flea traps have a grid so that pets do not rub their hair on the pad. This can render the trap useless.
