Grody! And itchy, too! We tried baths in Dr. Bronner’s, vacuuming, flea combing — all to no avail. So we vetted it and got the Frontline, a nasty chemical cocktail that supposedly interrupts the flea life cycle to rid your pet of blood-sucking pests.
Just yesterday, however, I ran across this post on natural flea remedies at Apartment Therapy. From salt to cedar, essential oils to vinegar, it appears that you can bust the little biters with household goods. Has anyone tried any of these methods? Or is Frontline the bottom line?
