Are you tired of spending a fortune on flea collars and treatments for your furry friends? Do you want to know a simple and effective way to keep fleas off your pets without harming them or the environment? If you answered yes, then you’re in luck! Because today I’m going to share with you a great way to keep fleas off your pets using two common household products: A useful combination; Dawn dishwashing liquid and food-grade diatomaceous earth!
You may be wondering: how can Dawn dishwashing liquid and diatomaceous earth help with fleas? Well, let me tell you. Dawn dishwashing liquid is a powerful detergent that can kill fleas on contact. It works by breaking down the waxy coating that protects the fleas’ exoskeleton, causing them to dry out and die. Diatomaceous earth is a natural substance made from the fossilized remains of tiny aquatic organisms called diatoms. It has microscopic sharp edges that can pierce the fleas’ exoskeleton and dehydrate them as well.
To use this method, all you need to do is wash your pet in a strong solution of Dawn dishwashing liquid and water. Make sure to lather up your pet well and leave the solution on for at least 10 minutes before rinsing it off. This will kill any fleas that are on your pet’s body. Then, sprinkle some diatomaceous earth on your pet’s fur and rub it in gently. This will prevent any new fleas from jumping on your pet and will also kill any eggs or larvae that may be hiding in your pet’s coat.
This method works for both indoor and outdoor animals, including feral cats. You can also add some diatomaceous earth to your pet’s water bowl to kill any internal parasites that may be bothering them. Just make sure to use food grade diatomaceous earth, which is safe for consumption. You can find it online or at some health food stores.
By using this method, you can save money and protect your pets from the harmful effects of fleas and parasites. Your pets will thank you for it! Try it out today and let me know how it works for you!
