Economical Way to Get Rid of Fleas

The most economical, and the best way to get rid of fleas, takes time and combing.

First, you must purchase what is called a "flea comb." The teeth are fairly close together, and you must comb for minutes, very gently, at a time. Once you have combed gently for 10 or 20 minutes, you must begin putting the fleas and hairs from your pet into a container that has water and dish soap in it, or a container that has water and oil in it.

A safe way is to use Borax in carpets. Leave for 2 weeks before you vacuum. That's besides bathing your dog a couple times. (09/29/2009)

This is going to sound crazy but it works wonders and is very cheap! Take an aluminum pie pan (dollar store) and fill it with lemon dish soap. Place it on the carpet and shine a light in it. You can use a desk lamp or something similar. Keep overnight, in the morning you will see lots of fleas in the soap. I have used this myself, takes about a week, then no more fleas! (09/30/2009)

K-9 Advantix is the best stuff around. We get it one month at a time, so it is only $13 a month for our 55lb dog, and $10 a month for our 7lb dog. Our dogs were both itching themselves to death. We put k-9 Advantix on them and the next morning there were dead fleas all over their beds. (09/30/2009)
