Natural Flea ControlEffective flea control means balancing toxicity and safety for pets and people.

Therefore, give Steam n Dry Flea Control Service a ring at  0800 199 399.


Deltamethrin is one of the least toxic options for natural flea control. Indeed, it is essential to use a flea control service that offers natural Deltamethrin. Unlike traditional flea powders, Deltamethrin contains no chemical pesticides and works through physical means. So, it’s safe to use directly on pets. However, the powder is fine and potentially messy, so take your pets outside or put down a sheet applying Deltamethrin.

On the contrary,  you apply Deltamethrin to your carpet, your pet’s bedding, and near the doors to repel fleas away from areas your pet frequently visits. Similarly, spread it throughout your yard to control fleas if your pet spends much time outdoors. Thus, be careful with the outdoor application if you maintain an organic garden that relies on natural predators like ladybugs to eliminate pests. Indeed, Deltamethrin will affect your garden’s guardians as it will be an effective flea control treatment.

Natural Flea Control – Limonenes

Furthermore, you can use some inexpensive natural solutions if you prefer a chemical insecticide to a physical one. However, naturally occurring compounds found in citrus rinds, Limonenes, are relatively safe chemical insecticides that affect fleas. Therefore, limonenes are the active ingredient in most over-the-counter natural flea treatment sprays, but it’s also easy to make your low-cost version at home.

Other Options For Natural Flea Control

1. Rosemary Flea Dip

Steep two cups of fresh rosemary in boiling water for 30 minutes. Furthermore, strain the liquid, discard the leaves, and add up to a gallon of warm water, depending on your dog’s size. Please wait until it cools but is still warm, and pour over your dog until he’s soaked. Of course, allow your dog to dry naturally. It indeed works incredibly well on hot summer days.

2. Lavender Essential Oil

Wash your dog thoroughly and towel dry. Then, apply a few drops of lavender essential oil to the base of the tail and another at the neck.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

A spoonful of this stuff added to your dog’s water makes their skin more acidic and not tasty to fleas. If apple cider vinegar is not your dog’s cup of tea, you can dilute it 50/50 with water, pour it into a spray bottle and use it as a repellent.

4. Lemon Spray Repellent | Natural Flea Control

Cut a lemon, cover boiling water, and let it steep overnight. In the morning, spray all over your dog. Especially behind the ears and around the head generally, but be careful of his eyes and around the base of the tail. As well as under your dog’s legs.
