I found the miracle
October 10, 2017
I can not rave about this product enough. I had an INFESTATION. It was horrid. I foster cats so I always have several and one of our new fosters brought in fleas. They quickly spread to our 6 cats and 3 dogs and we're everywhere. You could see them jumping in the air and 2 of the animals were allergic so they bit and scratches themselves raw to the point of severe hair loss. Anyone who had had fleas know they reproduce quickly and before you know it it gets put of control. If you flea bomb the house and bathe the animals and wash up everything and miss one of then they are back angrier then ever the nest week. I became desperate and found this recipe and followed it and I am happy to say we have been flea free!!! I got all the products off of amazon. Here is the recipe.
1 cup Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth
1/2 cup Neem Powder
1/2 cup Yarrow Powder
20 Drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil *Leave out the essential oil if using for cats*
Mix all ingredients together and put in a shaker top container like an empty baby powder bottle or salt shaker
Apply in a well ventilated area or outside, try not to let your pet inhale it
Apply from head to tail along your pets spine in dry conditions. Brush your pets fur going the opposite direction so the powder comes in contact with the skin. Avoid the eyes and nose. Rub the powder on the belly and legs. Try to get the flea powder on as much skin as you can. I also found the fleas seem to like the tail, the area right above the tail and the belly/groin area so I made sure to pay extra attention to those areas to get them well covered.
How often to apply flea powder?
To use this as a general repellent (with no serious flea infestation), applying once a month during active flea season (end of spring/summer) is sufficient. If the pet gets a bath or gets wet, it will need to be reapplied.
If you have a flea infestation:
You will need to apply more often, depending on how bad of an infestation you are dealing with. I applied every day until I saw no more traces of fleas (now I’m just using it as maintenance). Some are successful with applying as little as once a week, but others need it more often – it just depends on the level of infestation. Also remember to reapply if your pet gets wet (important!).
If you have a flea infestation, you will also need to apply this flea powder to your floors, windowsills, door sills, pet bedding, sofa, etc. Focus your efforts where your pet spends the most amount of time, since fleas and their eggs will be the most concentrated in those areas. Just apply a light dusting to the areas in your house and leave it there overnight. Vacuum in the morning or sometime the next day. Do this once a week for 4 weeks if you have a flea infestation.
If you got through all this and you are like me and had nothing to lose and are ready to set your house on fire and cut your losses then please try this. I was desperate and felt so sorry for my animals and this was a miracle. Good luck everyone!!
