The #1 SHOCKING Natural Secret Remedy Treatment To Kill Dog Fleas – FAST!
You rarely hear of this remarkably simple natural remedy that’s safe for dogs, cats, babies, and adults.
Older generations are familiar with this way before modern solutions began flooding the markets with inferior products.
It’s been around for DECADES!
Chances are you’ll never hear major flea extermination companies mentioning it because they KNOW this natural secret, use this as the base in their ‘secret formula’, charge an arm and a leg for the privilege to come out to your home and slap you with a service bill for something you could easily purchase for FAR cheaper and do on your own in less than 5 minutes.
So what’s this ‘mystery’ solution?
Borax, or sodium borate, is a natural mineral in salt form. It’s safe, similar to table salt.
That’s all there is to it. If you’d like to know more technical details for peace of mind, Wikipedia’s a solid resource. You can purchase this anywhere at a local store or Amazon if hard to find in your area.
So without further ado…
…here’s what you do:
6 Simple Steps To Use This Unique Formula To Kill Dog Fleas Permanently
STEP #1: Get one box of 20 Mule Team Borax at your local grocery store. You’ll find it in the laundry detergent section.
STEP #2: Find an empty coffee can and punch holes in the plastic lid with a sharp knife or other utensil to be used as a salt shaker.
STEP #3: Add roughly 3/4ths of Borax in the can along with 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Shake.
STEP #4: Lightly sprinkle the mixture on ALL carpeted areas. Be sure to get beneath couches, under cushions, under chairs, around planters (but not IN a planters), rugs and closets.
STEP #5: Put on a small surgical mask to prevent dust from entering your nasal pathways and sweep the mixture back and forth with your hands or small broom to get it deep into the carpets fibers.
STEP #6: Let sit for 24 hours then vacuum it up.
The only issue with this product is it can leave a mess 1 – 2 weeks later with hundreds of eggs suddenly hatched in treated areas. Don’t be alarmed. This is normal. At first you’d falsely assume BORAX did nothing, but in fact, it did what it was supposed to do.
BORAX kills adult fleas, larvae and pupae. Not eggs. So when they ‘hatch’ they do so to avoid dehydration out of desperation. Use a topical flea spray to kill the remainder and the clean-up process is complete.
Lastly, you can sprinkle it on other likely infected areas such as furniture, human beds, dog beds, dog houses, and as detergent to wash clothes to remove all traces of fleas.
The #2 “ALMOST-AS-SHOCKING“ Natural Secret Solution To Kill Dog Fleas – FAST!
*drum roll please*
Dawn’s dish soap.
Dawn’s dish soap does two things that makes it quite effective.
One, it forces fleas to ‘sink’ to the bottom because it contains surfactants (compounds that lower water surface tension).
If not for this important compound fleas fail to break the water’s surface tension because of their microscopic size, providing buoyancy, and water-repellent skin. They simply float on the surface, flail around and possibly escape. Under these conditions they live as long as 7 days. Under dishwasher soap water, less than 24 hours.
And two, it forces water into their respiratory system.
The respiratory systems of fleas and most insects are resistant to oxygen deprivation.
In other words…
…they’re tough to drown.
Hydrophobic (non-wettable) and covered in a thin layer of wax repellent, their waxy exterior extends as far down as to their throats protecting respiratory functions.
The addition of Dawn’s soap to regular water essentially breaks down this waxy exterior, exposing their trachea, causing them to drown. Plus, suds created by the soap likely blocks respiratory entries, ceasing the exchange of air, thus leading to death by suffocation and drowning.
A Natural Solution More POWERFUL Than Flea Shampoos
…and with great power comes GREAT responsibility.
Though Dawn’s soap is used as a less expensive alternative, it’s NOT made to be used on animal skin ‘whatsoever’ for extended periods of time.
That’s not to say it can never be used, but VERY sparingly because it’s a harsher chemical compared to pet shampoos that strips away your dogs natural protective oils causing extremely dry and irritated skin.
Below are 5 other mild natural dog and puppy flea solutions you’d want to incorporate in overall treatment across the board:
Clean your floors with salt water. It’s a natural repellent and flea killer. Not only does it keep fleas at bay, it can be used DIRECTLY on infested areas to kill larvae and eggs on the spot.
NOTE: If you reside in ‘above-normal’ humid areas, this will not be effective because salt absorbs water and will instead be the catalyst for musty carpets.
To prevent excessive flea growth, maintain a clean environment.
Here’s what you do:
Fill a bucket with a half gallon of water add four chopped lemons. Mix thoroughly. Let sit for 2 – 3 hours. Than proceed to use this solution to wipe your floors (ceramic, wood, tile, etc.)
Prevention is ALWAYS the best medicine. Do this alone consistently and you’ll rarely if ever run into problems.
White vinegar is also a classic remedy to eradicate fleas from your cat(s). Simply add a few tablespoons of white vinegar to your water and drench the coat of your pet to prevent infestations from occurring.
Place several cedar chips around your cat or kittens bedding as well as outside to control growth.
Anti-inflammatory properties in rosemary stimulates hair growth lost due to excessive itching and flea bites.
Here’s what you do:
Grab a handful of rosemary leaves, churn into a fine powder (or purchase in its fine powdery form), and sprinkle this powder over areas where your pet plays and sleeps.
These solutions are a handful ‘proven’ over the years to have worked in some way, shape, or form in other people’s experiences.
