February 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 203

Most people use harsh chemicals to get rid of fleas in their house, on their cats and in their yard. These chemicals are very toxic and can cause serious illness or even death if not used carefully. These are the same pesticides that are used to spray the crops. You probably aren't aware of the dangers of these pesticides, but there is an alternative solution. Maybe you've been wondering how to get rid of fleas naturally and didn't have any idea where to turn.

There are natural flea remedies for cats to get rid of these nasty creatures that do work. Fleas create a host of problems for your cats. They get tapeworms from grooming themselves and ingesting the fleas which is another problem causing them to get sick. It also causes weight loss, vomiting and anemia. The fleas attach themselves to your cat's skin and suck their blood and then they produce more and more fleas. There are literally hundreds if not thousands of these parasites in your cat's skin. Imagine how you would feel with little bugs crawling on your skin biting you every second. It is extremely miserable for your cat

Use a flea comb to check your cat for fleas. Set him on a white towel or paper towel and if the dropping looks like black pepper, your cat has fleas. Cedar Oil is an all natural product and will kill the fleas. It is harmless to your cat. You may need to use it 2 or 3 times to get rid of all the fleas, but it is well worth it. Make sure you dilute the cedar oil per instructions. Lightly mist your cat all over and comb the cedar oil through with a flea comb to spread it out.

Vacuum your carpet and furniture thoroughly, and then sprinkle Borax (available in the laundry isle of your local grocery store) throughout the carpet and furniture. Cover cracks and crevices and leave it. Grind it in the carpet and furniture with a squeegee or dust mop. Leave it on until the next time you vacuum. Wash all bedding adding Borax to your laundry. Make sure you treat the pet area.

You can also use Diatomaceous Earth which is all natural but do not use it in your house because it is very dusty. It is available at your feed and seed store. If you use this information on how to get rid of fleas naturally, your family, cats, house and lawn will be flea free without chemicals or toxins. Your cats will feel better and live a longer healthier life.
