So let's say that the cost of a branded flea, usually quite high, can be avoided. Our pets, cats and dogs usually, will be proof that a natural flea homemade works like the others.
To keep fleas away, do prevention by using a few tricks. Fleas don't like strong smells (like ticks) and if you use substances like lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary, fennel and fern you will be able to keep them away. The ideal is to perfume the pet's night area with these essences, as long as he likes it.
Another system of prevention, before resorting to a natural flea, is to add fresh crumbled (or powdered) brewer's yeast and a little fresh garlic or capsules to the food of the animals. It will not be easy to convince the dog or cat to eat garlic, but the fleas (and ticks) will stop eating him.
Natural do-it-yourself anti-flea
In case of flea infestation, the animal and the surrounding environment must be treated. To get by on our own without buying the spray we can use the fennel, great natural flea. We can rub it fresh on the animal's fur, use the decoction with the addition of salt for the bath and use it dry in addition to the litter material.
Before bathing, it works to dust and brush the dog with an abundant amount of baking soda, which will exterminate the fleas. But then remember to rinse any residual bicarbonate from the fur to avoid irritation to your friend's skin. Talking about bathing is more difficult with cats, but if you let the pet understand that you are helping him, he will not object.
