The Best Flea Spray for Your Home | Dr. Killigan’s
If you have a pet, you will eventually deal with fleas. These pests not only feed on your precious pet, but they will also bite into anything with blood; even humans. In addition to leaving an itchy sometimes painful bite, fleas are known for spreading diseases like heartworms. Lyme disease, and tapeworms for pets. They can also carry plague and typhus. This makes it all the more crucial that you deal with a flea issue in your home immediately by finding the best non-toxic flea killer for your pet and home.
How Flea Killers Work
From flea and tick collars and behind the neck drops to non-toxic flea killers, there are many options for you on the market. Most flea killers work by attacking the nervous system of the flea resulting in their death and not allowing them the time to lay their eggs. However, most of these methods use chemicals like pyrethrin to aid in flea treatment. While pyrethrin alone is not very toxic, it is unstable and does not have a long shelf life. Therefore, companies add other ingredients, or even worse, synthesize pyrethrin, which introduces toxic chemicals to the flea treatment.
What is Different About a Non-Toxic Flea Killer
With the dangers of chemical-based flea sprays, collars, and powders, more people are seeing an effective non-toxic flea killer to dispose of these pests. Several DIY methods are out there, like homemade dips with rosemary, lemon-based sprays, homemade collars made with vodka (yes, vodka,) and concoctions of apple cider vinegar. As with many home remedies, they are not full proof and often require a lot of preparation.
Dr. Killigan’s understands that when you need to get rid of fleas that no one has the time to create a mixture that may or may not work. They have created a reliable product like that is designed to dispose of fleas, as their creed states, Killing them Softly™. This means that nothing harsh or toxic is ever used.
Dr. Killigan’s Six Feet Under
Six Feet Under was originally formulated for livestock and poultry. It is a clove oil mixture that is a non-toxic flea killer for dogs and cats. While some sites claim that essential oils are toxic to cats and dogs, but that danger only exists when the doses are higher than those that exist in Dr. Killigan’s SFU. Its mixture of .08% is strongly diluted and will not pose any risk to your pet, but it is still effective against fleas. It is even safe enough to spray directly on your pets and kills at all stages of the flea’s life cycle.
Dr. Killigan’s Insect Buster
The Insect Buster is a bulb for dispersing diatomaceous earth (DE) powder. It is a great non-toxic flea killer for carpet areas or various cracks/crevices of your home. While it is safe for pets, there is some time where you need to keep them away, generally 24 hours, but after it is vacuumed up the area is safe again. Keep in mind that DE is not a dead-on-contact method; it does take a bit to work because it dehydrates the flea from the inside. Use Six Feet Under ™ for the on the spot treatment, and DE for longer-term treatment.
