Here in Illinois the bugs are pesky and real bad. So I use bug spray on my dogs. The Off stuff. Is that ok?
If you have a dirty house Fleas will stay around, so clean dog , i have raised many animals , we take them bath them hold al of their body ,not the head, under water for five minite with soap all over them this drowns any fleas, then rinse then add pure lemon juice ,if there were any fleas hiding this brings them to service dead, wash them off repeat , i know this seems hard especial with big dogs, but think how your dog feels, after last bath, rub the lemon juice all over them like a cologne , place the lemon juice in a bottle for spray, this way when yoru dog goes out fleas will not jump on after you spray them first before going out, next in the house , this is easy, take a mom on all services that can be mopped with bleach and water , they cannot stand the smell and it chokes them off it even melts the eggs raccoon if any around, , for carpets, it like your cloths shampoo it!, the thing it don;t use a lot of water fleas love damp wet ares , use as little water as possible put a fan on it to dry after your done turning the heat up only makes moisture, , then take your lemon juice and spray a mist all over it when dry, vacuum real good smells god and if fleas come in they go back out , fleas are a tiny bug stop fabricating about their size ,if someone brings their dog or cat over tell them they have to be sprayed before they come in this helps deter people from bringing their pet , spray them too, some people just do not get themselves and animals clean ,sad but true and don;t place dirt in yoru carpet it never completely comes out don’t believe me look under carpet , always vacuum carpet on high at first then if you want to fluff the carpet lower it but high will have more suction power ,oh and clean vacuum out before you suck and after the eggs are in there ,and last pray to God infestation do not come near you and yoru animals ,do not use straw for bedding use cedar shavings ,if you have a coon dog use cinnamon in saw dust or lemon juice cedar shavings take the smelling sense form a dog
Thank you for this tip! I’ve had Geranium sitting in my essential oils drawer for a while but never thought of it. Been trawling the net for a natural tick repellent for my dogs and my tea tree bug spray doesn’t seem to be working. Recently added geraniums in my garden.
