Natural flea repellent product


I am wanting to stop using pesticides such as Advantage and Front Line on my dogs because I feel like I am poisoning them everytime I apply it.

Has anyone tried the Nature's Defender from Cedar Oil Industries? It is supposed to be "chemical free" . My animals don't need flea repellent too often, maybe I apply it 3 times a yr max., so I'm wondering about this pesticide free product.

Thanks for any feedback

Re: Natural flea repellent product

I have heard great things about Buff Off Garlic from Springtime Inc.

I have not used it as Ava is allergic to the yeast that it contains but it really sounds like a wonderful product. They will send you a magazine which is great.

Re: Natural flea repellent product

I started giving Bug off garlic two months ago. I hope it works against ticks, we don't really have lots of fleas around here.

Re: Natural flea repellent product

it works like a charm against ticks. in the 5 years i've been putting it on my dogs i have only found one tick. i take my dogs into the woods a lot and before that was pulling ticks off of them a lot.

Re: Natural flea repellent product

I think I'll have to try some too. Ticks are insane here - I walked 50' into the woods to help my one dog find a ball that had bounced...and walked out with around 20 ticks on my legs and a dozen on the dog that I could find. I stopped using commercial flea/tick products a year or two ago and can't say I've noticed ANY difference in how many ticks I've found embedded on my dogs...I think the ticks here have developed a resistance to a lot of the chemicals. We do spend a lot of time in the woods hiking. I might find one or two ticks embedded a month and that never seems too bad for how many I know are out there, but if I could cut it down to zero naturally that would be wonderful.
