Find remedies through household products you already have. Be cautious to get rid of your fleas as some do carry diseases. The benefits of home remedies are that you get to replace chemical treatments with all natural ingredients.

Preventative Measures

There are multiples ways to try and stop the pests from attacking your pets and home. Lists of plants that repel the fleas/ticks that leach off their hosts. Different tactics to attack them from within your dog’s body.  Multiple spray bottle recipes to fight the pests runaway. Do whatever it takes to ensure that these pests refuse to return.

All Natural Spray

There are two types of sprays you can make with the natural ingredients. One recipe just happens to be a bit more complex than the other. The main ingredient in most sprays contains vinegar. They will utilize various types, but the truth is that apple cider and white vinegar are interchangeable. So, use at your convenience depending on what supplies you have at home. You can also dilute these mixtures as desired. Find the right balance for your dog!

Spray Recipe #1: Apple Cider Vinegar, Water

The trick to this spray is that equal amounts of the ingredients should be added to the spray bottle. For a better scent than the vinegar would provide, add a couple droplets of essential oils.

Spray Recipe #2: Vinegar, Water, Lemon Juice, Witch Hazel

According to my research, there are people who put 4L of vinegar, 2L of water, 500ml of lemon juice, and 250ml of witch hazel to create the right spray mixture.

Spray Recipe #3: Lemon, Water

For this spray, I recommend that you thinly slice about a third of the lemon. Proceed to add the thin lemon slices to a pot with water and boil. Once your pot begins to boil, let it cool. After it has been cooled, add to your spray bottle. Now, you’re ready to spray away!

All Natural Flea Collar

For an all natural collar, you will first have to purchase an inexpensive collar that is likely to absorb liquids. Preferably a collar with cotton-like material for the best absorption. Only two ingredients are necessary, which also makes this collar simple. All you need is a bottle of unflavored vodka and some essential oils. After this mixture is complete, add droplets around the collar. Then let it dry before putting the collar around your dog’s neck

According to my research, there are two different recipes for cats and dogs.

For Cats: 1 teaspoon of unflavored vodka, 1 drop Cedarwood essential oil

For Dogs: 1 teaspoon of unflavored vodka, 1 drop of rosemary and/or thyme

Attack The Fleas/Ticks From The Inside of Your Dog!

Try adding a few drops of apple cider vinegar to their water bowl. This simple trick will get rid of these pests like magic. This prevents your dog from getting attacked repeatedly. It will also establish a preventative measure as your dog itself will repel fleas/ticks as their body’s acidic levels rise.

Repellant Plants

One of the most natural and simple tricks to prevent fleas/ticks are to add some repellant plants to your home. Your home will not only repel these plants but also smell better. The most commonly known list of plants is Lavender, Spearmint, Rosemary, and Chrysanthemums. If your home has been infested or currently is, add one of these plants to your home and see the difference!

Hope these tips and tricks will do you well. Good luck!
