Safely destroy fleas on pets - Finally, a non-toxic, natural way to kill fleas and other parasitic insects on pets and in the house
(NaturalNews) Nothing is more aggravating then finding fleas on the family pet. Even the best pet parents have their work cut out for them when flea season begins, and that doesn't include a possible infestation of chiggers or other creepy, crawling, mite-like invaders taking up residence in the home. Conventional flea treatments and topical applications may kill fleas; however, they can be dangerous for pet health. Insecticides leave toxic chemicals on pet fur and skin that eventually find their way into the animal's body, poisoning the liver. Other natural treatments may eliminate fleas in the yard, but can't be used in the house or directly on the animal. There is a way to treat pets and even barn animals that does work to eliminate the annoying, parasites -- and it's safe, natural and inexpensive.

Getting rid of fleas is a two-step process -- treat the pet and then, treat the house. The combination works, but both steps are necessary.

One of my goals is to focus on the solution not the problem to help myself and others create a new earth, the world we've all been dreaming of. I stumble every day, making mistakes and sometimes losing my way; however, I do my best to pull myself back and remind myself to focus on the outcomes I desire, and not the fear, sadness and grief that causes the problems. The realities we create come from paying attention to what we want, not what we don't want. This is what my work is about.

My main interests are in alternative and natural healthcare, wellness and green living. I practiced alternative medicine, classical homeopathy and holistic nutrition for over 30 years and am now retired.

Pine Oil will kill fleas. Straight pine sol is potent enough. Don't use it on your pet...just your floors.

DE is great but be very careful that it does not get into the pet's eyes or have then catch the down wind of it. It can do harm to pets & humans if not used with care.

I store 2-2.5 years of fire wood in the basment and had lots of insects and rodents, geckos, all kinds of shit because of that. Plugged in 1 of those night light looking thngs and everything is gone. 2 cats and 2 dog dont seem to mind it, then go everywhere in the house still. Been 10+ years and littereally no bugs or spiders or nothing downstairs.

PLEASE Do not buy Swimming pool grade Diatomacious earth, IT IS TOXIC to pets!

ONLY purchase the "FOOD GRADE" for use on Animals and livestock.

Also, even with the food grade that is safe for pets, DO NOT get it stirred up into the air it is a fine powder of microscopic crushed sea creatures, it is shards and sharp, that is why it kills bugs and fleas by cutting them.

While it won't hurt an animals outer flesh it WILL CUT THEIR LUNGS UP if they inhale it just like asbestos does to human lungs!

I know there is a lot of controversy about garlic,
but I have given it to my dog for years. It works
and it is cheap, it takes care of the fleas and because
he is outside a lot it keeps the worms away. All I do
is sprinkle a little granulated garlic on his food and I
never had a problem, but talk to your vet if you have
any questions.

A woman I know swears by it, says she doesn't have fleas in her house but go into her bathroom and you can SEE all the little blood stains from them in the sink, shower, on the floor. She brought her dog to my house and now we are all getting bit. Doesn't work or she didn't use it properly.

Now garlic DOES work! And as long as you are giving it in a safe dosage for the weight of your pet, it will be just fine. Also good for expelling tape/pin worms in an emergency until you can get Droncit.

I have been using DE on my dog and it isnot having any effect. This after several weeks. Sorry.

However, I have heard that horses do not have fleas (something about their scent). And that by rubbing your dog with a used horse blanket will get rid of the fleas. So, I am going to buy a horsey smelling blanket from a riding stable and give it a try.

for those of you saying it does not work on carpers, YOU MUST LET IT SIT FOR # DAYS. Then, vacuum it up. As for your pets, I have also heard that spraying them regularly with Apple Cider Vinegar works as other posters have said. Google amethyst stone in drinking water. i read somewhere about this before but i think it is only supposed to work for cats, but its worth a try:)

Re: Safely destroy fleas on pets - Finally, a non-toxic, natural way to kill fleas and other parasitic insects on pets and in the house
Used it last summer, I have 5 kids... Needed something safe because the house we moved into was infested. Worked outside but not inside... End up calling orkin lol... I found out the hard way that im the only one in my immediately family who is highly reactive to flea bites had over 50 bites on each leg... Wore my immune system down.
Had the riddex... Worked wonders for another rental property we stayed in... Kept the roaches out and all other bugs too.

Currently using food grade DE on my dog. Treated him twice. About 2 weeks apart. Backbrushed his fur while applying liberally with an old parmagian cheese jar/shaker.
May have helped. Probably not. Still scratching.

The above is correct, no pool DE. There is other chemicals added to it specifically for pool care.

You can get food grade DE at any farm feed store $3 -5 for a 5# bag. People already eat the stuff anyway. They use it in grain silos to kill bugs and there is always some left in the grain. It will not hurt you, but avoid breathing the powder dust. Could cause silicosis I believe. So can baby powder dust. Just be careful and don't snort it.

It's good for clearing parasites from your bowels and generally cleaning out the system, and in farm animal's food to help keep them healthy. I've used it for getting over tendonitis/arthritis in my knees. I can totally squat down now, couldn't do that for years. I do a tablespoon in OJ every morning. Keep it stirred, it doesn't actually dissolve. Or just chug it quickly.

There is a lot of info if you google DE. Supposedly good for fleas, roaches, ants etc. I have read that it tends to destroy vacuum cleaner belts because it is sharp.

It is made of silicon, which is the 3rd or 4th most abundant mineral on earth. It never goes stale either.
After all, it is millions of years old to begin with.

Interesting stuff.

I can not believe people are not googleing DE, its kills fleas, yes, but not to use on your pet!! I feel sorry for the poor pups that the one person said they are still using on their dogs...Not good.. I wanted to put in my 2 cents that Advantage and Frontline do NOT have good reviews either (again Google and read up) Revolution is the only product I felt somewhat safe in using on my animals. I am having a hard time affording it now days and searched for something more natural. I read the thing about the Amethyst in water, kinda laughed and though, ya, too easy, wouldn't that be something...But thought for a couple bucks it wouldn't be a big loss and am sooo glad I tried it! 6 months now and not one flea in site since. Pretty weird or a coincidence that there are no fleas this year, but so far it has me convinced! I'm using a garage sale bowl, its enameled, (have no Idea of that made any difference) and I bought a cheap Necklace off ebay for $2. I had bid on some rings, stones and other jewelry for anything amethyst and won a 12" necklace of nice round beads on a string... $2, I just put the whole thing in his bowl.

It will kill aphids and such on your plants. I had these tiny little ants coming in a the patio door, they don't any more. The best part, is that it is in non-toxic and natural

I don't think it would harm your eyes, but then again I've never got any in my eyes before. I'd be concerned about inhaling it, but that just speculation on my part. I know farmers feed it to their livestock to kill parasites, I' dusted my dog's fur last summer when he got a few fleas, no more fleas, no worries about the animal licking himself and injhesting the DE; like I said before I drink a little every other day

For a completely natural pine source for flea control, try Olde Tyme 1881 Super Pine Oil Cleaner. Native Americans historically used pine as a flea repellant and to kill fleas. It's great to use diluted to clean surfaces and is reported to kill fleas on surfaces. I'm not sure if the diluted solution can safely be put on a dog's coat - like any substance, it has some safety concerns so google natural pine carefully before exposing your dog to any respiratory, ingestion, or other side effects. If you google it, you'll find where to buy it. It's concentrated and when diluted as instructed, will go a long way. It's made from taping fallen trees and stumps to extract natural pine oil.
