Can fleas live in human hair?

Fleas will bite and feed on humans, but the reality is that they do not wish to live on us. If there's no preferred host around, they can end up getting into dense human hair. Fleas will not lay eggs in human hair because our blood is not nutritious enough to support their fertility and ability to reproduce.

What smells do fleas hate?

Fleas hate the smell of it, so they won't even come close. Your house will smell like peppermint or eucalyptus, but you won't have any fleas. Faithfully keep your carpets and hard floors swept, keep your animal's bedding clean and spray your animals with apple cider vinegar or lemon juice to keep fleas off of them.
