Summer is typically thought of as the peak of flea season. While drops and pills are available, they could be a hit or miss and are sometimes harmful to our furry friends. Here’s how we could keep our pets safe this summer by going the all-natural route!
Where Are The Fleas Coming From?
Step one to keeping our pets safe this summer is to distinguish where our pet’s flea infestation is coming from. Our pet could easily contract fleas from our yard, our neighbor’s yard, or simply from other cats and dogs.
If the source is from outside, we would have to treat our yard before treating our pet. Wondercide has a great yard and garden solutions that kills and repels fleas, ticks, mosquitos, and hundreds of other pest, while being safe for beneficial insects. Another natural way to keep the flea at bay is to sprinkle cedar wood around the yard. Not only does cedar chips repel fleas and insects, it also helps to repel snakes as well!
Clean Carpets, Furniture, and Bedding
Step two would be to treat the inside of our homes. Flea eggs and larvae hide deep in the fibers of carpet, furniture and even in our pet’s bed. Make sure to throw the pet bed, toys, human bedding, clothes, and washable rugs into the washer. Sweep tile or wood floors, and vacuum carpets, rugs, and furniture, making sure to throw away or empty the vacuum bag after.
