Fleas, fleas, fleas...

How to attack Flea issues naturally...

Feed 1/2 teaspoon of powdered yeast daily to the cat.
Feed half a garlic clove per day.
Put dried chamomile flowers in the cat's basket.

HOME MADE FLEA COLLAR FOR DOGS:   (you can also use these same oils to make a spray for the doggies and on furniture)
2 tablespoons peppermint essential oil
1/2 cup rosemary essential oil
2 tablespoons white cedar essential oil
1/4 cup citronella essential oil
2 tablespoons eucalyptus essential oil

Feed Dogs:
Garlic a capsule a day
I also use Black Walnut Hull

Soak a natural fibre rope in mixture and let dry for several hours. Tie around pet's neck. DO NOT use on cats.

'FOOD GRADE' Diatomaceous Earth:

Use Diatomaceous Earth for control of roaches, silverfish, ants, bedbugs, flies, fleas, box elder bugs, scorpions, crickets, and many others. Diatomaceous Earth can be used in and around the home, yard, animal housing, etc.

Our best friends come in all shapes and sizes. Protect them with Diatomaceous Earth. When lightly rubbed into their coats it is very effective against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests on pet dogs, cats, and their premises. It can also be used as an organic wormer and will kill any worms or parasites the pets may have. When using as a de-wormer mix the Diatomaceous Earth into your pets food. Mix well into kibble and wet food.  Ask your vet how much for your size pet.
Cats – 1 teaspoon/day
Kittens – ½ teaspoon/ day
Dogs – 100lbs+ -2 tablespoons/ day
50 – 100 lbs – 1 tablespoon/ day
under 50lbs – 2 teaspoons/ day
Minidogs – 1 teaspoon/ day

Your best friends come in all shapes and sizes. Protect them with Perma-Guard! Effective against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests on pet dogs, cats, their premises, and other warm-blooded animals subject to these parasites.
Perma-Guard D-20 Pet & Animal product is licensed to be used in and around the home, yard, animal housing, etc. It can be applied as a dry dust, or mixed with water at the rate of 2 oz. per quart and sprayed as a liquid.
  When applying anything to your pet’s skin or your own for that matter, it’s always a good idea to try just a little in one area first, to make sure there’s no adverse reaction to the product, be it a hand cream, powder, shampoo or soap.  No matter how natural something is, everyone is different and can have allergic or just adverse reactions to things.

·       Dry Application
o   Cover the affected area with Perma-Guard Pet & Animal Powder at the rate of 8 oz. to 16 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft.
·       Fleas, Ticks, and Lice
o   Lightly work the material into the hair of the animal. Use brush or comb to work the material down to the skin. Pay strict attention to places where the animal cannot reach, such as the scalp. Dust the ears of the animal with care. Dust the animal's bedding and areas where the animal sleeps, as well as cracks and crevices adjacent to them. Repeat once a month or as necessary. Individual ticks observed on the animal should be dusted thoroughly.
·       Premise Application
o   For animals confined to a specific area infested with fleas and ticks, dust the entire area with Perma-Guard Pet & Animal Powder.
·       Large Application Areas
o   Use any hand application designed for the purpose of discharging powder. If using a small lawn fertilizer spreader, mix equal parts of dry sand with Perma-Guard Pet & Animal Powder for even flow. Dust thoroughly the first time and then periodically reapply as needed.
·       Wet Application
o   Mix with water at the rate of 2 oz. per quart of water (one oz. is about 8 level teaspoons). To help keep it in suspension, add one teaspoon of mild detergent and agitate the sprayer now and then while applying.
·       Re-infestation
o   Prevent re-infestation by keeping Perma-Guard Pet & Animal Powder in the pet or animal's coat as a repellent.

Special Notes: This stuff works very well and is non-toxic.  However, it is a mineral dust and it’s not something you want to breath in on a constant basis or in large amounts.  Once you think you have the problem under control, you can vacuum up the dust and dead insects and throw away the bag or empty the canister of the vacuum cleaner.  It’ll clean out the vacuum cleaner too!
   If you have a chronic problem with fleas, ticks and other pests, you can apply this material in a more permanent manner by doing the following.  Apply it to the sills of the building and around the perimeter of the building, where people and animals don’t go that often.  These are entry areas for the bugs.  They can live in the basement in cracks in the slab and in the sill area undisturbed.  Diatomaceous Earth will make these areas uninhabitable over the long term.
  You can drill holes in the walls of your house or building using a small drill bit and apply the Diatomaceous Earth, through the hole using a puffer bottle.  Then, putty or spackle up the hole so the stuff is in there for good, killing any bug that tries to lay eggs or live in there.
  Applying the Diatomaceous Earth by these methods will give you permanent protection and help keep the dust level down in the house and reduce undesireable, cronic,  long term exposure.
