I hear that fleas are attracted to light/white...Haven't tried it myself yet but, a friend did. Put/get a night light low to the a bowl of dawn dish soap below it and supposedly fleas will jump to the light only to fall into their own bowl of soapy death!!

yes this is so true...i have done this before and it does work. I bout a few night lights from the dollar store along with square foil pans and i fill half way with water and add dish soap and it works great.


this does work but you don't even have to but soap just a bowl of water under a night light and they will die


This does work as we are doing it right now to get rid of fleas.


I find that the light is irrelevant to this trap. It ATTRACTS nothing, but fleas hop around all the time. Set a bowl of soap water down and fleas are bound to jump into it. Especially in high-traffic locale. Just put down several pie-dishes of soap water and it will aid in killing off SOME of your infestation, and give you a good perspective on how many you have.


This works because the fleas are attracted to the warmth of the light. I have done it and am always excited to see the little buggers floating in the water in the morning. I use lemon scented soap in the water. an a low but wide bowl.
