Flea Problems and Answers: How to Get Rid of Cat and Dog Fleas
We had a big problem with fleas. When you walked through the kitchen, your legs were covered in fleas, it looked like you just put on a pair of black knee-high socks.
We tested every product on the market that we could find, from flea powder to fumigation tablets. The fleas would subside for a few days, but before long he would be wearing his black knee-high flea socks again. The flea infestation made our home feel grimy and dirty. I had trouble sleeping because I could feel the fleas biting me, and I was itchy and itchy all night.
Flea powder and flea collars no longer helped dogs.
After six months of this nightmare, we had one of two options.
1. Moving (which was not an option at the time due to financial circumstances and limitations)
2. Burns fleas. We were contemplating how we were going to successfully implement this dangerous strategy.
Fortunately, our neighbor had visitors who found out about our desperate plans to get rid of our flea infestation problem. They suggested we use Pine Gel. I had never heard of this product and was willing to give it a try. We found a 500ml Pine Gel tub at a local soap store, ADA Distributors.
We dilute the 500ml bottle of Pine Gel with 20 liters of water, first we wash our dogs with Pine Gel and then we spray the infested area for 3 days until we finish with our 20 liters of diluted Pine Gel. What we saw was an incredible sight, when we started spraying you could see a black cloud of fleas fleeing from the Pine Gel solution. You have to see it to appreciate it or believe it, there is no other way I can describe it to you.
Needless to say, we got rid of our flea infestation without having to take drastic measures. Our house and our dogs have been flea free since we discovered Pine Gel. We have washed our dogs once a month with the Pine Gel solution and have had no side or unwanted effects to date, we have used this product for 3 years. I hope you benefit from this information.
