2 Comments for the Fleas Home Remedy


My poor Silky cross Pom was completely covered in nasty fleas. I have from past posts, created my own remedy mix.

1 teaspoon bicarb soda
1/2 teaspoon of pure lemon oil
Juice of 1/2 orange
300 mls tap water

Pop it into a spray bottle give a good shake & spray on dog's coat using fingers to rub down to base of hair shaft. I also rubbed on her belly skin. Initially she was distressed but within 1 minute she settled and the nasty little buggers were dead. I am so relieved, she is fast asleep hasn't scratched once in the last in the last 2 hours. I love home remedies & am glad I visited this site. Thank you from my pretty puppy Poppy x

What if you find them in your home?! What can you do to kill those?! And are they harmful to humans?! Can they infest our linen, beds, etc?! I'm new to having pets. These dogs are my daughters ones. So we are trying to help the best we can but not sure what to do! Can anyone help!! Mahalo :)


Hi, I have a cat that is 1 year and ten months old and 1 that is a 6 month old kitten both are male the older one is neutered. Will this remedy work on them and will it be harmful when they clean their as cats do so a lot?
