How To Kill Fleas Instantlly
For those who are bothered by annoying fleas on their dogs, the fastest way to treat them is to use DAWN DISH DETERGENT. THE BLUE BOTTLE. It will kill all fleas as soon as you put it on your dogs for a bath.

I have yet to figure out how to KEEP THE FLEAS OFF MY DOGS, but I do know how to kill them?

Hope this helps for any pet owner who didn't know this?

This very true OP. The Original Dawn Dish Detergent does kill the fleas, however, be careful about using it too much, it does strip the dogs skin of the necessary oils. As for keeping the fleas off, that's the million dollar question! LOL If you figure it out, please let us all know!

I use is once a week on my dogs, and then rub olive oil on their back end really good. This helps them from drying out.

I use a spray bottle of vinegar & water and spray it on them and rub it into their skin when they start scratching. It sooths them and seems to paralyze the fleas.

What about for short hair cats?

I have 2 males, pure white short hairs ... I can't get the fleas to stay away. We do the flea comb at least 2 times a day, clean their beds daily, give them flea baths once a week (didn't want to start to irritate their skin from the harsh chemicals), etc. We even used a pill from the vet that the vet uses on her cats. Nothing is working. There is always a handful every day, no matter what we do. We're tired of using chemicals. I've even tried apple cider vinegar in their water. Nothing is working.

Put salt on your rugs overnight, then vacuum it up in the morning. It dries out any flea eggs/larvae.

OnTheFence, I know what you mean about chemicals. When one of my dogs was diagnosed with Lymphatic Cancer, I went to a modified BARF diet, stopped feeding him commercial foods and treats. It helped prolong his life almost a year, but alas he succumbed to the cancer. It will be a year next month. Anyhow, I apply REVOLUTION Spot On Treatments on my dogs now, it helps with ear mites, intestinal worms, ticks, fleas and heartworm. I hate giving it to them but it's either that or a flea infested house and pets. I like it a little better than Frontline and Advantage. If you take regular table salt and baking soda and sprinkle it on your carpets and furniture, leave it for a day if possible and then vaccum it up, it acts almost like DE (Diatomaceous Earth). Only problem with both is that you have to try not to make a dust cloud as it will harm your lungs and that of your cats/dogs. I'm still looking for a viable and safe solution to killing fleas. Good luck in your battle.

Re: How To Kill Fleas Instantlly
thats good to know about Dawn dish soap, i have and eskie and shitz shu, i tried over the counter and didnt work, so i use Frontline from the vet, it really helps, no fleas! i have all hardwood floors so i vacuum them every day, i also apply a treatment to the backyard grass. i also mix a spray bottle of tree tea oil and lemon oil and spray them lightly around the feet and legs before walks. oyu can also set a candle in a plate of soapy water and put in middle of floor. at night the fleas go to the heat of the flame and fall in the water. this year has beem pretty bad. take care!

THe best Dog Shampoo which also kills fleas and is great for their coat and Skin is "Head and Sholders" normal washOur Dogs join me in the Shower every Friday Morning.

This like any shampoo will not control flees but kill them at time of contact.

Recently Advantage and a number of other similiar products stopped working...

We are now using thhs biscuit product from our vet which is working

Re: How To Kill Fleas Instantlly
Dawn does work to kill fleas, and is safe for puppies. To repel them we use a concentrated cedar oil (diluted), works better than most sprays and repels bugs on plants but you have to use it sparingly as the oil can suffocate the plant if applied to liberally. We use it on ourselves as well

No dish detergent I've found kills fleas. It may temporarily remove them but they come back. Try taking fresh rosemary leaves and grinding them up. Rub them into your dogs fur and the fleas will stay away. Not only that, your doggie smells good.

Diotomaceous Earth is a flea killer. It's not instant but they eventually die of dehydration, as does any bug that comes in contact with DE. Works great on carpets.

Frontline seems to work for us. YOu know about Frontline, right? You just put a dab of it on the cat's shoulders blades where s/he can't lick it.

I can't claim it's completely non-toxic, but its action is to inhibit some chemical process central to flea metabolism, NOT cat metabolism. So I believe it's less toxic than flea shampoos and sprays which are plain old poison.

You have to kill eggs too which might entail using some strong poison on the cat bedding, your house's carpets, your own bedding, furniture, etc. After treating them you can wash them to get rid of poison residues.

I know. It's a lot of work.

NEVER use a bomb! Nasty stuff.

Re: How To Kill Fleas Instantlly
For those of you who say you have used your solutions on dogs - do you think they will also be affective, and safe, for cats?

None of the Frontline and similar products have worked. A pill that the vet herself uses on her cats doesn't work ... none of the flea-specific sprays work ... none of the flea shampoos work ... Everything seems to decrease the numbers, but never gets rid of them.

The boys are isolated and their "bedding" is just towels that I change out daily. They are not near carpets and the place they are in is frequently cleaned and has been sprayed.

I hate to constantly use different chemicals on and around them ... might end up doing harm to their system. I guess we'll try a Dawn bath this weekend. Couldn't hurt.

A few drops of eucalyptus essential oil in a spray bottle filled with water stops or repels the fleas. I spray around the dog's bedding, the sofa, carpets, etc. and fleas disappear. Also, wintergreen essential oil is said to be good.

For those who don't know, Listerine sprayed around doors, windows, patios, etc. helps repel mosquitos.

Re: How To Kill Fleas Instantlly
I have a cat and he came with 2 fleas. I bought a flea collar.


In a week, we had 2 million fleas.


I used Skin So Soft on the cat, flea shampoo, flea dip, flea powder, Frontline, and every damn thing I could think of, includign borax and salt in the carpet. Nothing worked.

I was about to bomb the house and get rid of the cat.


Until...

I got Sargent's Gold Flea and Tick Spray for dogs. I sprayed every inch of carpet, gave the cat a couple more flea baths and I have never had a problem since.

It is the only flea product I have ever tried that actually does what it says on the can.
