Is there a flea trap?
Just so, do flea traps really work?
Yes and no. Flea traps do attract and capture fleas but they won't eliminate an active infestation. The reason is simple -- your pets are far more attractive to fleas than are traps, since fleas are adapted to finding a suitable host rather than a light bulb.
Furthermore, why do fleas jump into soapy water? Flea Traps & Water The light attracts the fleas, causing them to jump and land in the water. Adult fleas are positively phototactic, meaning they're attracted to sources of light. Adding a few drops of dish soap to the water reduces the surface tension. As a result, the fleas sink and drown.
