  1. What is the best thing to kill fleas in your carpet?
    I have sprayed my yard and used flea shampoo on my dog. I just can’t get rid of the fleas in the house.

    • 1>>> Use frontline on your dog
      2>>> Steam clean your carpets.
      3>>> Buy a textile collar for your dog
      Mix
      1/2 teaspoon alcohol (Essential oils)
      1 drop cedar wood oil
      1 drop lavender
      Mix with the contents of four garlic capsules
      1 drop citronella
      1 drop thyme oil
      Soak the collar in this mixture, allow it to dry then put it on your dog.This will repel fleas. Re soak it every month.
      4>>> There is a tablet called prgram, it’s basically a birth control pill for fleas. You give one to your dog once a month & it makes the fleas infertile thus breaking the life cycle. There is also a program injection,I think that lasts 6 months.

      If you do all this, you should stay flea free without having to use the frontline again.
      It’s not good to keep using chemicals on your dog & home because they could be carsonagenic.

  2. How do I get rid of fleas on my dogs and in my house?
    I have two chihuahuas and this is the first time either of them has had fleas. I just noticed them about a week or two ago. I haven’t seen them around the house but you can never be too sure because the dogs go almost everywhere in the house. What is the most effective way to get my dogs flea free. What is the most recommended flea repellent and what can I do to get them out of my house if they are in here which they probably are?

    • I prefer natural flea tick and mosquito remedies.There is a natural alternative to the harsh and harmful chemical based flea and tick repellents. NATURAL FLEA, TICK AND MOSQUITO REMEDY FOR DOGS kills fleas, ticks and mosquitoes for up to four weeks, yet it’s safe to use on your dog and around your family. It uses the natural power of essential oils which are well known for their highly effective defense mechanisms against potentially harmful insects. One bottle lasts you up to 9 months.
      There is another great product called DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FOR FLEA AND TICK CONTROL ON PETS. Diatomaceous Earth for Flea and Tick Control is natural, nontoxic, totally organic and safe with no harm to the environment, pets or to people.
      Diatomaceous Earth is an all-natural flea control remedy that works to dehydrate adult fleas. When applied to the animal’s environment, as well as the animal itself, it is as effective as chemical alternatives. Diatomaceous Earth is the fossilized remains of a type of hard-shelled algae called diatoms. While Diatomaceous Earth is generally safe for humans and animals, it is lethal when it comes to insects. Its sharp edges cut into the waxy outer layer of fleas, ticks and other insects causing them to dehydrate and eventually die. DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FOR FLEA AND TICK CONTROL ON PETS is also very effective against any type of worms, lice, mites and other pests.

  3. Is there a product out there that will rid our Yorkie of fleas?
    The stuff at the vet no longer works. She is also nibbling at herself. It looks as if we have shaved the whole back end around her tail. I have a flea comb and kill as many fleas as I can find, but she does not like to stand still for this. I have to catch her unawares. I have bought expensive flea spray that does not work. I am glad to buy for her whatever “works”. Please help us. Thank you.

    • Did you ever try natural flea, tick, mosquito and parasite remedies? They are very effective in repelling fleas and ticks and other insects + they are safe to your pet, your family and the environment. One really good remedy in repelling fleas and getting rid of parasites is Diatomaceous Earth. You can sprinkle it on the coat of your pets for flea control or sprinkle on food for parasite control. Diatomaceous earth is a geological deposit made up of the fossilized skeletons and tests of siliceous marine and fresh water organisms, particularly diatoms and other algae. These skeletons are made of hydrated amorphous silica or opal. When crushed, they break up into tiny pieces of glass” (so tiny that the material feels like talcum powder). This is easily picked up by the hairy bodies of most Insects. Whereupon it scratches through their protective wax layers; and they also absorb some of this material. the result being that the insects lose water rapidly, dry up and die. Further protection is provided by the powder’s property of repelling many insects. A similar principle probably accounts for the fact that birds frequently take dust baths, presumably to rid themselves of parasites.
      Some other natural flea repellents use essential oils for repelling and killing fleas.To protect themselves, certain plants have developed highly effective defense mechanisms against potentially harmful insects. The essential oils of these plants were combined in a solution to form a natural pest control barrier for pets. I have dogs and cats and since I use these natural pest controls there are no fleas anymore and they not getting bothered from ticks, mosquitoes or such.

  4. How safe is permethrin for use on dogs?
    The flea and tick killer I use is a permethrin-based spray product that I apply to my dog’s coat after romps outdoors. However, I am concerned that this is a dangerous pesticide. Does anyone have any opinions on the matter?

  5. What can I use on my dog to get rid of fleas?
    I have a teacup poodle that has seizures. I have used Adams Flea Spray, but he has seizures when I use it. I have given him salt water baths that get rid of them, but they don’t stay off of him. I can’t give him a salt water bath everyday. Is there anything else I can use?

  6. How do i keep my dog clean in the winter time?
    Winter is coming and I cant give my dog a bath in the yard because it is too cold. I cant give it to her in the tub because she is too big and doesn’t sit still. What can i do to keep her clean and smelling nice during the cold weather?

    • We have REALLY big dogs and they go swimming in our lake, so they smell really bad. In the winter time, my mom gets a box of baking soda and puts it on a wet towel/rag and just rubs it all over them. Then, gets a plain wet towel and wipes it off after a few minutes. :)
      It makes them smell like NOTHING! :)
      Also, if you have any essential oils like lavendar, or anything, you can put that on them, That also gets rid of fleas.:))

      Good Luck! Hope I helped!!!!

  7. How can I get rid of fleas on a 3 week old kitten?
    I have a 3 week old kitten that I found and it has lots of fleas. How can I get rid of them since the kitten is too young?

  8. what Are some ways to wash the fleas off my dog?
    my dog has fleas and i dont know how to treat her but i dont want to give her any medication. i just want something that i can put on my dogs fur! can you help me?

  9. To the person who asked how to get rid of fleas?
    Bathe your dog or cat in Dawn dishwashing liquid. Also you can boil some orange skins and lemon skins together, let cool, and put in a spray bottle.Spray your dog or cat daily.Here is another tip, keep your grass cut real short, also water the grass frequent.This keeps the fleas down.The sun bakes them and the water drowns them.

    • You have to be careful what you apply to cats. Many essential oils are extremely toxic to cats, so be careful with orange peel if want to try natural remedies.

      Also, fleas thrive in a moist environment so I highly doubt that keeping your lawn wet will help at all.

      I wonder what your sources are on any of this, actually.

  10. What can I do to get rid of the fleas my 4 pugs are battling?
    I spend $50 a month on my 4 pugs for Frontline and do what I can to eliminate fleas in the house but they continue to have problems. I can’t use a lot of the sprays for the house cause I have chemical asthma. I thought flea drops were suppose to stop fleas, at this rate I could save my money.

    • This is what has worked for me:

      To treat your house, sprinkle borax on all of the carpet and all along the baseboards. Leave it there for 24 hours and then vacuum. The borax kills the fleas by dehydrating them. Empty the vacuum bag immediately outdoors into a plastic bag and throw it away just in case some of the fleas managed to live. Get a spray bottle and fill it with plain water. Add four drops lavender essential oil and four drops cedar essential oil. Shake well and spray all of the carpets, upholstery, and bedding. These oils act as a natural flea repellent.

      To treat your dogs, bathe them with your usual shampoo, but add two drops tea tree essential oil to each pump or squirt of shampoo. Start by making a barrier of shampoo around their necks to prevent the fleas from taking refuge in the dog’s head, then work your way down the the tail. Be sure to work the shampoo down to the skin and leave the dog lathered for five minutes to ensure the fleas are dead, and rinse well. Make your own flea collars by putting four to six drops cedar essential oil on each of your dogs’ collars. Spray your dogs down once or twice daily with the lavender and cedar water. Wash their bedding in hot soapy water and it down with the lavender and cedar water. You can store sprigs of fresh rosemary with their unused bedding to keep fleas out.

      Remember, a dog’s nose is more sensitive than a human’s. What smells weak to us may smell very strong to them.

      Add garlic to your dogs’ food. Garlic makes a dog’s blood taste bad to fleas and the fleas will leave them alone. Do not give any dog more than one large clove of garlic a day.

      This is what I did and I managed to remove every flea from our six dogs and our house.

      Essential oils are not cheap, but a vial each of lavender, cedar, and tea tree oils will cost less than $50 at your local health food store and last a long time. They will eventually go rancid, though, so store them properly and smell them to make sure they are still fresh.

      Good luck!

  11. How can I rid fleas of my home?
    My animals are infested in fleas! I have tried frontline, advantage etc and nothing seems to work. My home is infested the yard is a sandlot so they are coming in on peoples feet/animals when they go out to potty. I don’t want to use a chemical bomb because I have a 6 week old baby in the home. Please help!

    • 1. Vacuume your home well including cushions, down the sides and back of your furniture, pet bedding areas, any where your pets like to lay, and doorway areas. If they get on the beds vacuume the mattress and box springs, especially near edges and corners where “stuff” seems to collect, and under the bed too. Wash your bedding and pillows-hot water.
      2. Treat your yard with something specifically for fleas. Hardware stores sell it. It has nematodes in it that will kill the fleas and their larva.
      3. Treat your animals (I use Advantage). Read the package to see how close you retreat. You don’t want to make your pets sick.
      4. Wait a day after treating to give a bath (again check the package instructions on the Advantage). Give bath with shampoo that kills fleas. I don’t like using too much insecticide on my dog and she has sensitive skin so I take the shampoo I use and add about 10 drops of Texas Cedarwood essential oil to the whole bottle. You can get it at the health food store and it does cost a bit but will last you a very long time.
      5. While bathing pets also be washing their bedding-hot water and detergent and bleach. Do this every time you bathe the pets.
      6. Bathe your pets once a week until you get the flea problem under control.
      7. Don’t forget to continue to treat the yard as proscribed on the package. Be sure to treat the area around the house well, especially the door for about 1-2 feet out.
      8. Keep pets out of the child’s room untill the fleas are nolonger a problem. They will bite your child.
      Best of luck

  12. Does anyone know any natural ways to get rid of fleas?
    I think my cat may have a flea problem. He was a street kitty that I recently took in. I know that there are many pesticidal ways to remove fleas (like flea collars and Frontline) However, before I resort to possibly harmful chemicals, I was wondering if anyone had any alternate solutions. Also does anyone know of a way that I can treat my carpet and furiniture to ensure that there will be no little flea buggers hiding around my home?

    • Frontline-plus is actually the safest thing for your cat, it does not absorb into the body like flea collars or Hartz drops do, it stays on the surface of the skin. Garlic is a so-called “natural” flea remedy, but it does NOT work, and garlic is also toxic to cats-causes a red blood cell deformity that prevents the cat from getting enough oxygen. Ditto with onions. You shouldn’t give garlic or onions to dogs either. Essential oils can cause severe irritation to a cat’s skin, and intestinal tract if groomed off. Either keep Frontline-plus on your cat for 4 straight months (which is the time it takes for the flea to complete its life cycle) or get an environmental spray from a veterinarian’s office or professional exterminator that knows you have a cat. They’re sensitive to so many things, you really need to follow a pro’s advice. We use Ectokyl brand spray, it is safe for babies to crawl on treated rugs once they are dry.

      Don’t take my word for it, call the vet.

  13. Is there an easy cheap and EFFECTIVE way to get rid of fleas?
