Inexpensive way to get fleas off animals

Buy a flea comb you can¬† get the¬† plastic 2 sided type for about a dollar. Get a¬† bowl to very¬† soapy water. Start at the¬† head of the animal. Do a few strokes with the¬† comb and look at it¬† for fleas. If you see fleas on the¬† comb dip the¬† comb in the¬† soapy water the¬† fleas will drown. Make sure to get all the fleas off the¬†comb¬† and¬†into the water. Note fleas are hard to squeeze and¬† kill you have to smash them with¬† something solid and¬† you’ll hear them¬† pop.¬† Then¬† continue to comb the¬† entire animal. 100 % safe and the¬† only absolutely safe way¬† to get¬† fleas off . You need¬† to vacum¬† all your floors every¬† few days and dump the¬† bag or canister¬†¬† every time you do. For extra help¬† get eucalyptus oil. Mix 1-2 tablespoons in hot water in a spray¬† bottle.¬† After¬† you vacum¬† spray your¬† carpets furniture &¬†pet¬† beds. DO NOT USE ON ANIMALS. Fleas hate the¬† smell of it.¬† If you happen to have¬† trees in your yard¬† you won’t have¬† fleas.

And PLEASE if you have had a problem with any flea products report it to the EPA, the¬†company and the store that¬† sold it to you. Also tell people¬† ,¬† tell everyone you know, anyone you see in a store looking at¬† flea products It appears despite¬† over a decade of fighting¬† to get this stuff off shelves it’s not¬† going to happen. THe¬† last meeting between the¬† EPA and the¬† companies that make these dangerous¬† products was just like all¬† the other actions the¬† EPA has¬† taken, ineffectual, to little to late and will not stop our animals¬† from being injured and or¬† killed¬† by¬† over¬† the¬† counter flea products.¬† So it’s up to each and everyone of you to try to inform the public. It’s the only way to safe animals. And yes I have been¬† fighting this battle since 2001 so I¬† do know what I’m talking about!.

  1. There are a few problems I have with your blog. While the flea comb will take care of the adult fleas, it has no effect on the flea eggs and larvae. Fleas do not hate any smell enough not to live there. Trees do not repel fleas. Female fleas lay up to 50 eggs a day, 2/3 of which are female which will lay up to 50 eggs a day! They have to be killed with a flea treatment, not just a comb and water. Perhaps that is why you have been battling since 2001. My advice, use a good brand, Frontline Plus, Advantage, or FirstShield, or even better Revolution. Good luck!

  2. I put salt water in a spray bottle…I spray furniture and carpet with it..harmless, non poisonis and kills fleas…it dehydrates them…the eggs too…they die! Do this every week or so vacuum once it’s dried as normal.
