Flea-free is the way to be–I’m sure both you and your pet will agree! But even the safer flea and tick products on the market (the ones your vet recommends) are still pesticides and should be used only when chemical control is necessary.

Did you know that there are effective chemical-free flea and tick treatments? Peruse the following sites for ideas on how to attack a flea and tick problem without exposing your pet, yourself, or your children to deadly toxins. Consult with a trusted veterinarian before starting any flea or tick treatment.

    I’m surprised there are not more homeopathic remedies here. If the site is very anti-toxic chemicals, why not say what IS more appropriate to use. I read somewhere about concentrated lemons as a somewhat effective spray. Please post more about what else is good and how to make these preparations. Thanks!

    I have been using Wondercide for over a year with very good results altho it is difficult and time consuming tospray eight animals every 2-3 days, especially cats..but the outdoor treatment is very good and has helped control all the stuff that comes in from the field behind me, which has been vacant for forty years except for the skunks, coyote, ticks, fleas, and mice, and pheasant..nothing to break the wind and crawling creatures, i do not want to hurt them either. the indoor spray works great and smells yummy. two of my cats i believe got scabies from going in that field and the wondercide killed it. but i now also use Frontline plus on all of them, wish i did not have to. ,
