Which Safe Use of Natural Repellent Effective for Flea Control Implementation


 
Environment,Home Improvement,Health
There are effective non-toxic countermeasures you can easily employ for home fleas. Because fleas become stronger and more immune to chemicals with each generation, toxic chemicals must be repeatedly applied. And, although a product may claim to be natural, some natural ingredients may cause allergic reactions or have toxic effects in animals.

There are a number of regular household items that can be used around the house and on your pets to repel and kill fleas.

Here are natural, easy tips to prevent fleas from entering your home:

A natural way to repel fleas.

Most dogs have a favorite place or two to sleep. Some have a rug, or a certain place on the carpet. Others have a pet bed where they lay. If fleas bother you from your dog, try the following natural treatment for pests:

½ cup pennyroyal 3 Tablespoons dried Thyme 3 Tablespoons wormwood 3 Tablespoons rosemary

In a bowl, mix these ingredients together well.

Open the seam to your pet bedding a little. Put the above mixture inside. Sew the seam back together. This mixture should repel fleas from taking up residence in your pet's bed.

To deter fleas from carpets and rugs naturally, sprinkle pennyroyal or fennel over them. Let this set for a few days if possible. Vacuum well and make sure to get rid of the vacuum bag after cleaning up the fleas.

Spray microscopic nematodes in moist, shady spots outside — even in flower and vegetable gardens. The worms eat flea larvae and can reduce populations by 90 percent within 24 hours.

Set eucalyptus leaves inside and out because fleas can't stand the smell. Buy bunches at a craft store, cut them up and place leaves and stems in open glass jars. Set one or two in each room of the house. Also, hang pod-filled socks from branches around the yard.

Essential Oils: Strong odors like eucalyptus, lavender, garlic and citronella work as effective repellents. Mix in a few drops in a bath or add to the salt before you sprinkle it on the carpets and floors. You can also add a few drops to a spray bottle of water to spray your pet's bed. Or, make a natural flea control for collar by dabbing some essential oils on a bandanna and wrap it around your pet's neck. Do your research on which oils to use because certain ones can irritate some animals

Cedar beds work well for pets because of their ability to repel fleas. Or, vacuum up some cedar chips, dried lavender or small pieces of lemon peels to deodorize the air while you vacuum.

Soap or Baking Soda: Put either the soap or baking soda in a dish of water in a container by a light that your pet can't get to. The thirsty fleas will be attracted to the light, jump into the containers and drown.

Vinegar: Make vinegar bath or add a bit to your pet's drinking water to repel the fleas.

Follow these tips to safely manage flea populations indoors:

Create a specific pet sleeping area that's easy to clean often.

Restrict pets' access to attics and basements.

Vacuum carpeting, furniture and floors weekly. When fleas are present, burn the bag promptly for effective disposal. Regularly wash all bedding and rugs that your pet has contact with. Comb your pet daily with a fine-toothed metal flea comb. Pull in the direction of the fur and drown fleas in soapy water. At night, diligently place a dish of soapy water under a light near your pet's bed to attract and trap fleas. Treat your pet monthly with a homemade repellent. Place a thinly sliced lemon in a pint jug. Cover with boiling water and let the mixture soak overnight. In the morning, spray or rub the mixture into your pet's skin and fur until damp, not wet. As research suggests, it's best to begin preparing in March or April before fleas have a chance to run the house. S
