Hi! I don’t have pets! I moved into an apartment that had fleas and the landlord paid for an exterminator. We’re doing the borax method currently but as I was looking up traps I read that lights attracted fleas I’m not sure how true that is but now I am concerned that if I’m lying in bed on my tablet late at night in my dark room I’ll get some fleas jumping on me and that’s just not cool.
Fleas shouldn’t be in your bed. They can only jump to the height of a human ankle. However, if sheets are hanging low to the ground, then they may have a route onto the bed.
It is true that light attracts fleas, especially green-yellow light that is intermittently turned on and off. Read more details about what attracts fleas.
