3 Comments for the Fleas and Ticks Home Remedy


I have tried many different remedies to get rid of fleas. I have even tried using Borax by sprinkling on my carpet. Here is what I have done to rid my home of fleas. I bought a flea collar and chopped it up in several pieces and placed some of the pieces in my vacuum cleaner (I would replace those pieces every few weeks). I then would vacuum every day, making sure to dump the vacuum container outside after each time. I also bought Advantage from a Pet Hospital/Veterinarian (3 months use). I then choose a date to apply the medicine to my pet and did so religiously. My pets are indoor only and after 5 months of doing this…goodbye fleas.

I have a hard time believing that this could work. In order for flea collars to work the fleas have to bite the collar. My vet even said they are a waste of money. I have always used revolution on all my pets. And flea collars have a lot of toxins in them so every time you vaccum your spreading them on your carpets. Not good if you have small children in the house.


I suspect the results came from her vacuuming every day and dumping the stuff outside. 5 months is a long time to go without results tho.


I've been rescuing dogs all my life & its a constant battle that you have to stay rIight on top of if you want to control the problem I always put it on the calender & sorry to inform you of this but advantage is good for UP TO 1MONTH NOT THREE!!!Ihave7right now &it gets exspensive try adams dip diluted acording to directions put in spray bottle mist on dog keepaway fromeyes&mouth rub into skin must be repeated more often but costs less & works!
