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.
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
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
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
Brewer's Yeast & Garlic Tablets as a natural way to help keep away fleas
from the inside out.
