Preventing Wood Ticks and Fleas

If you put 3 tablespoons of distilled white vinegar in a gallon of water each time you refill your pet's water, they will be free from wood ticks and fleas.

I love this tip if it works it will save me $30 a month that I've been spending on Comfortis. I'm going to try this thanks for posting this info. You didn't say, do you do this or is it a tip that you read?

I wonder if this would work on people. Every time I go out I can take at least two ticks off me.

If this works I will save $l50.00 a month, so I really hope it works. As you can see we have more sand than grass and fleaing a whole acre has been expensive. When it is dry nothing works. sand, sand, sand and finally we got a rain.

How did you learn about this tip - did a vet recommend it, did you read it in a pet book, is it something a friend told you about? If it really works, it's a great tip for sure! Thanks for sharing.

My mom used this method for years, only she used cider vinegar. She lives in a high-desert area with lots of fleas. All the neighbors pets had problems with them. My mom put vinegar in their water & she never had a flea problem with her dogs or her indoor cats in the 20 years she used it. I don't know how it works on ticks.
