You may think this is a odd time to post about such a thing as flea powder & flea control (it's winter at the time of this writing), but depending upon your location & the severity of your winter, you may need this all year long, or at the very least, early next spring. I would rather have information or product on-hand, or know where to find it quickly, instead of scrambling around trying to find it when I need it . . . NOW!
As often happens, I needed to do some research for a customer at the health food market I work at & I thought it was worth having for myself & for sharing with you.
Here's what you'll need:
Dried or powdered in equal amounts:
- yellow dock
1) With a hand grinder or in a small coffee grinder (dedicated to use w/herbs ~ otherwise, your herb mixes will smell like coffee), grind these ingredients into a powder & mix well together.
2) Store in a shaker-top container; a used, clean Parmesan cheese container works very well.
3) When ready to use **USE OUTSIDE!** You don't want the fleas to hop off into your carpet.
4) With a brush or comb, brush or comb fur backwards & apply powder so that it gets onto the skin. More can be used in more heavily infested areas.
5) Use as often as needed.
Pets are family, aren't they?
