What is a homemade flea trap? Dish soap
This home flea remedy involves creating a flea trap using dish soap and some water. All you have to do is fill a plate or bowl with a mixture of warm water and dish soap and place it in the rooms of your house which receive the most flea activity.
Will dish soap and water attract fleas? Place your bowl of warm soapy water underneath the night light. The fleas will be attracted to the light and will jump toward it. When they land, they will land in the soapy water. They won’t be able to get out and will die.
