DIY Natural Flea Spray: Effective & Easy Recipe for Spring!

Not good… .Lyme disease, Ehrlichia, Tapeworms, Flea Allergy Dermatitis are diseases transmitted to our pets from fleas/ticks.

There are MANY reasons to not like these pests!

And it seems that there are now more Ticks than ever… . Flea season is getting longer 🙁

In today’s newsletter I am sharing a new flea and tick spray recipe, but I do want to mention a few supplements that can really help your itchy dog or cat’s skin in general… .

The bioflavonoid found in apple, Quercetin, is one of the remedies that I advocate you use for allergies.

We now have a Quercetin supplement that can decrease the itching:

This $1 plastic device is INVALUABLE for Natural Flea and Tick Control. During Pest season, daily comb your pets, removing critters if you find them. Really focus under the backs of the ears, the armpits and the groin. This will alert you to when your pet has fleas, and IF you need to take bigger steps, staying on top of a potential outbreak.


This is correctly called “diatomaceous earth, " which consists of the skeletons of microscopic algae. It can be purchased in pet supply stores, but be sure it is the kind meant for pets, not the glass type used in swimming pool filters. It can be used on your pet and in the house. Apply it weekly during flea season, vacuuming three days after applying.


Garlic and brewer’s yeast have been advocated as a way of repelling fleas. In my experience it only seems to help a small number of dogs, but it is worth a try. Garlic is not safe to give to cats long term. For a ten-pound dog, give one-fourth teaspoon of garlic and one-fourth tablespoon of brewer’s yeast daily.


A relatively nontoxic natural substance, this has been proven effective in the eradication of infestations in pets. Be cautious in spraying any type of essential oil on cats or small dogs; only lightly mist them and then use a flea comb to spread the spay around.


Humidity is vital for flea survival. Flea eggs need humidity of 75 percent to hatch; flea larvae need 50 percent humidity to survive. For example, in places with adequate humidity, 20 percent of the eggs survive. In dry areas with low humidity, less than 5 percent of the eggs survive. Using a dehumidifier in your home will go a long way in stopping the flea cycle.


These flowers are where the first flea sprays came from. Get a handful of the flowers, steep in hot water, cool, and pour over your dog or cat. This will temporarily paralyze the fleas.
