  • we had a horrible time with fleas this last summer. we used to borax on the carpet and furniture, the borax soap, which is laundry booster, is actually like shards of sand, or something that literally rip the fleas apart. the d-earth is good b/c u can use it on the animals, and also try mixing the d-earth with salt. the salt dries them up.
    it sounds funny, but within a day we had almost no fleas....good luck, theyre a pain in the ass to get rid of!

  • Tea tree oil works on head lice, I wonder if it would work for fleas as well? I've never tried it, but in theory it sounds like it may work.

  • Diatomaceous Earth. Or, usually called D-earth. If you can give your dogs a good flea bath & keep this stuff sprinkled on their coat, i PROMISE your animals will stay flea free....you can also sprinkle it on your carpets (flea's can lay eggs in carpets).


    Here is some info on it;

    Tea tree can work, but it's irritating to animal skin. So be very careful...
