Step 1 Spray `em
- The first thing you have to do is
to reduce their population ASAP. This is done by spraying the infested areas with a natural
soap that will kill the fleas (but not the eggs). This can be sprayed around pet bedding,
rugs, furniture, etc.. A fine misting is enough. Should be done daily. Always test rugs,
furniture for any damage the soap may cause. Ok around kittens and or puppies.
Using Natural Soap Sprays
- This is an excellent soap to use
as a mist around infested areas. Smells great, too! Use 5 tablespoons
per quart sprayer of water.
A good substitute if you don't mind the citrus scent, yet effective. Use 5 tablespoons
per quart sprayer of water. Follow the same procedure as above. Avoid getting into eyes.

Your own Liquid Pyrethrium Formula
1/2 cup Pyrethrium dust,
1 oz alcohol
a bio-degradable soap.
First make a Pyrethrium Slurry by adding the pyrethrium dust into an empty container. Add
a small amount of alcohol (1/2 oz). Add a few drops of a bio-degradable soap (such as Dr.
Bronners Soaps or OrangeTKO or any natural soap or Amway's LOC or Green Ban). Slowly add
a little water, stirring it up until it is all dissolved and forms a slurry. Slowly add
the Pyrethrium slurry into a panty hose, tying into a ball. This "ball' is placed in
a gallon of water. Keep stirring the water as you go. When it is all dissolved you can use
it to fine mist the rug and the dogs whenever there is any sign of fleas. You can lightly
mist the dog before he enters the house. You can also spray the area around the house once
or twice per week as needed, as well as spraying the dog's bedding area.
