No matter how clean you keep your home and your pup, sometimes fleas get the best of us. When dealing with such a pesky pest, we like to try and avoid poisoning our pets with prescriptions from the vet. It's also best to keep in mind that you will need to launch a multi-point attack. This includes setting up a flea trap. Sometimes the most simple inventions are the best: a small light bulb in this trap attracts the bugs and they fall into a sticky pad of death. This way, you are capturing the adult fleas that hatch in your home (gross!) before they catch a ride on your dogs or other furry friends.
Other important factors are: bathing your animals with recommended soaps (coming soon) and keeping your home well vacuumed. Also, laundry...you can never do enough laundry. Certain herbs are great for keeping pests at bay (think mint, peppermint). Please be cautious when treating animals or the home with essential oils, some plants are toxic to pets (tea tree oil is deadly to cats).
