Flea Repellents vs. Flea Treatments
Know Before You Buy!


 

If your pet already has fleas, then purchasing only a flea repellent product is not going to solve your problem. An existing flea infestation must be treated with a product that kills fleas, not one that simply repels them.


"Many people with a serious infestation choose both - a borate powder for carpeting, and a diatomaceous earth powder for use on furniture, bedding, and the pet."


The most effective natural flea killers are flea powders. You may choose between a diatomaceous earth powder like Only Natural Pet All-in-One Flea Remedy, which can be used on your pet and around the house on furniture, carpet, bedding, etc. Or you may choose a borate powder like Fleabusters or Fleago, which are designed for use only on carpets, not on pets or furniture.

Borate powders can last up to one year in carpeting, while diatomaceous earth powders need to be re-applied to carpeting every few months. Many people with a serious infestation choose both - a borate powder for carpeting, and a diatomaceous earth powder for use on furniture, bedding, and the pet.

Using one or more flea repellent products in addition to a flea powder will help with the infestation, and of course help keep the fleas away once the infestation has been mitigated.

Tackling a flea infestation naturally is most effective with a multi-prong approach that includes a flea powder, a flea comb, and complementary repellents like a flea tag, flea shampoo, squeeze-on, or flea collar. We also strongly recommend Brewer's Yeast & Garlic Tablets as a natural way to help keep away fleas from the inside out.


FLEA TREATMENTS:

Flea Control Powders

  • Diatomaceous earth powder can be used directly on your pet's fur as well as around the house on furniture, carpet, bedding, etc. and even in the yard & garden. Reapply every few months.
  • Borate powders are designed for use only on carpets, not on pets or furniture, and are effective for up to a year.

Flea Shampoos

  • Bathing your dog or cat is an excellent way to kill fleas. Lather the neck first, so fleas can't run up onto the head. Leave the lather on for a few minutes to help smother persistent fleas, then rinse well.
  • Be sure to treat your house and yard as well, or your pet is likely to become re-infested.
  • Flea & tick shampoos and conditioners not only get rid of existing fleas, but repel fleas and other biting insects with the natural pest preventing power of essential oils like neem, citronella, and lemongrass.

Flea Comb
GripSoft Flea Comb - for manually removing fleas - use daily!


FLEA REPELLENTS:

Squeeze-Ons

  • Apply directly to pet's fur between the shoulder blades. Reapply montly.
  • Repels fleas and other biting insects with natural ingredients such as Geraniol (a natural extract of the Geranium plant that's 400% more effective than citronella!), lemongrass, peppermint, and clove.

Flea Collars

  • Place around your dog or cats neck. Replace according to instructions - generally about every 3 months.
  • Natural collars use essential oils, which can become concentrated while in their packaging and can irritate some dogs and expecially cats. Consider allowing collars to air out overnight before placing around your pet's neck.

Herbal Sprays

  • Apply directly to pet's fur (use lightly on cats - we recommend spraying onto a cloth, then lightly wiping it over your cat.)
  • Repels fleas and other biting insects with the proven natural insect-repelling power of essential oils including lemongrass, citronella, patchouli, clove, and neem oil.

Flea Tags

  • Attach to your dog or cat's collar. Generally lasts one full year.
  • Flea Tags use multiple approaches to repelling fleas, including a bio-energetic process to create a natural barrier and ultrasonic sound waves.

Concentrated Oils

  • Use on collar, harness, dilute to spray, or distribute through coat with hands
  • Includes neem, lemongrass, citronella, cedar, rosemary oils & other essential oils for use with dogs.
  • Essential oils are not safe for use with cats.
