There are special metal flea combs
(better then plastic type) available that you can use to comb your cat or dog. This is a
very effective method of controlling and reducing fleas. Monitors fleas as well as
controls problem by picking up Flea eggs. You dip the flea comb into soapy water or you
can add a little alcohol to the water, to kill the fleas. Comb during bad flea periods.
Comb once or twice per day if you can. Best for cats. Feeding a little garlic to your pet
will help them rid themselves of fleas, and it will also control worms. Feeding brewers
yeast to your animals will also help control fleas on them. A herbal flea collar would be
very useful here. Sometimes, electronic collars work well.
Here is a trick. Place a small amount of powdered pyrithrum onto the comb and then comb with it. Do that everytime to kil any fleas it comes into contact with. Just keep adding a small amount everytime you use it.
