If you have pets at home, you would most definitely agree that fleas are one of the most annoying of all pests. What makes it worse is that you are presented with a further dilemma if your pet is infested with them: There are many insecticide products for sale that will help control fleas but some of them may not be safe to use in the long run. Our friends at Earth Easy created a top-quality post on some of the most natural ways to control these pests (link at the end of the page).
During the peak season of fleas, many owners start to use dips, sprays, powders and shampoos on their pets. These are effective for a while – but when the fleas come back, it will trigger another round of chemical dousing. This cycle can eventually take a toll on our health, as well as our pets. Whats even worse is that the insects become insecticide resistant over time. Don’t you agree that this may be a disaster waiting to happen?
You might be asking us this, “What is the best option then?” First of all it is advised to increase your pet’s natural resistance to fleas with supplements and a good diet. I remember one of our neighbor’s dogs got heavily infested with fleas and the normally friendly and active puppy became so weak and unable to move. Thanks to consistent care and proper feeding, he’s now back in shape.
Simple non-pesticide solutions presented in the article include diatomaceous earth, electric flea traps and a clever low-tech solution involving a bowl of soapy water and a lamp. There are also “beneficial predators” – nematodes – that can be introduced outdoors and these keep flea populations down.
When you see your pet start to scratch himself, don’t panic. It might not be caused by fleas. You can check your pets for infestation by using a flea comb and start brushing your pet’s coat. Fleas could be anywhere but are more often found on the groin area and the base of the tail.
Remember that fleas thrive on pets that have weaker immune systems. They will attack the young ones and the senior ones. Make sure that your pets are well fed and make sure that their skin is healthy. Their skin normally secretes oils which makes it more difficult for the fleas to bite. Supplements will help keep your pets in a good state of health.
