​Natural Flea Control vs Topical Chemicals

Posted on

It’s that time of year again! If you’re a flea, you’re probably jumping for joy right now. With winter over, the hot weather is perfect for those pesky flea fest! Aside from the often intense irritable itching from flea bites, it can also lead to severe allergies and disease. Americans spend millions of dollars on flea collars, sprays, and topical solutions every years, unaware of how dangerous these products can actually be. These conventional products can have a numerous harmful effects to you, your family, and furry friends.


Why Most Flea-Control Products Can Be Dangerous

The “spot-on” flea-control products have grown to be super popular. Topical treatments contain active ingredients such as Pyrethrins, Imidacloprid, and Arylheterocycles. The chemicals act as pesticides and target the nervous system of insects, causing repetitive nerve firings. Labels may warn not to get these substances on your skin, to wash your hands after applying them, and to keep them away from children, yet these chemicals are absorbed by your animal’s skin. Serious medical reactions can include vomiting, diarrhea, respiratory problems, brain damage, heart attacks, and violent seizures. Fortunately, there are much safer and effective solutions that will help protect you and your furry friends!
