How to Get Rid of Fleas or Chiggers in the House

Chiggers and fleas alike are both unwanted house pests. They typically start as an infestation on a house pet and reproduce quickly. Before you know it, there is not a single room you can walk into without getting bitten by one or the other. There are ways to treat these obnoxious and somewhat painful pests.

Step 1

Empty cabinets in the kitchen. Cover dishes and food with sheets. Cover all decorations and anything else you do not feel like cleaning when you get home.

Step 2

Leave furniture exposed, particularly cloth furniture where fleas might live.

Step 3

Put on a face mask or hold your breath as the fog starts going off.

Step 4

Start at the back of the house, farthest away from the door. Set off one bomb in a small- to medium-sized room. Put two or more bombs in larger rooms.

Step 5

Leave the house for at least four hours.

Step 6

Spray insecticide around the perimeter of your house to ensure the fleas and chiggers do not return.
