Control Fleas and Ticks without Chemicals

The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) checked the ingredient list of more than 100 flea and tick products. The NRDC found that many contain toxic chemicals, which could poison pets and harm people, even when applied as instructed on the package. Keep your pets safe by choosing your flea and tick treatments with care. Also, regular combing, bathing and vacuuming can reduce and control fleas.

  • Regular combing of a pet can help reduce fleas and also helps monitor the success of a flea control program. Fleas caught in the comb should be drowned in soapy water.

  • Soapy baths are a great way to control fleas, because any soap will get rid of them. Fleas tend to accumulate in bedding, so wash your pet's bedding in hot water once a week.

  • Vacuuming picks up fleas and eggs from carpets, floors and from under or on furniture. Immediately after vacuuming, throw vacuum bags away to prevent fleas from escaping and re-infesting your home.
