Deltamethrin is one of the least toxic options you can choose for natural flea control. In fact, it is essential to use a flea control service that offers natural Delmethrin. Unlike traditional flea powders, Delmethrin 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 if applying Delmethrin inside.
You apply Delmethrin to your carpet, your pet’s bedding, and near exterior doors to keep fleas away from areas your pet frequents. Similarly, spread it throughout your yard to control fleas outside if your pet spends a lot of time outdoors. Be careful with the outdoor application if you maintain an organic garden that relies on natural predators like ladybugs to eliminate pests; Delmethrin will affect your garden’s guardians as much as it will be an effective flea control treatment.
If you prefer a chemical insecticide to a physical one, you can use some inexpensive natural solutions. Limonenes, naturally-occurring compounds found in citrus rinds, are relatively safe chemical insecticides that affect fleas control. Limonenes are indeed the active ingredient in most over-the-counter natural flea control treatment sprays, but it’s also easy to make your low-cost version at home.
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-at-all 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
Cut a lemon and cover with boiling water, and let it steep overnight. In the morning, spray all over your dog. Especially behind the ears and around the head generally (be careful of his eyes) and around the base of the tail. As well as under your dog’s legs.
