Fleas and Ticks Home Remedy Comments

2 Comments for the Fleas and Ticks Home Remedy


My cats had a fairly bad flea infestation, bad enough that we were getting bites on our feet from the carpet fleas. I noticed that after I went swimming, I would get few to no bites. So as a last resort (before the flea meds arrived), I took some pool water in a spray bottle and spritzed all my furniture and carpets twice a day. It worked wonders. I don't know if the chlorine actually killed the fleas or just drove them away, but no more bites either way!

A great alternative is Petersen's Homeopathics Flea + Tick. My cat had a skin allergy from the flea bites. Within 10days the fleas had gone and allergic reaction had also disappeared.


won't the chlorine in the pool water turn everything white on your furniture????? good idea though!
