Fleas and ticks are not just a nuisance, they can also harbor serious diseases that harm humans and animals alike! Many families and pet owners are becoming increasingly concerned about the harmful effects of traditional pesticide-based flea killers. If you live in an area prone to these pests, the Safer® Brand family of products offers many organic flea control solutions that are easily broken down by nature.
Fleas transmit a number of parasites, viruses and other potentially dangerous pathogens. Among the most deadly is the bubonic plague, which although rare, still affects an average of 10-20 Americans each year, as well as an untold number of cats and dogs. Other diseases commonly transmitted by fleas and ticks include Lyme disease, cat scratch fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and tapeworm infections.
Organic Flea Control
There are a number of steps you can take in your home and garden to control fleas and ticks without the use of chemical pesticides. Wash all pet bedding regularly and, if your dog or cat spends a lot of time outdoors, give them regular baths with a gentle shampoo. Keep your lawn trimmed and weed-free and eliminate cool, dark spots where fleas can hide. In the home, vacuum regularly and in problem areas leave out an indoor flea trap to control flea issues.
