Ok Listen up guys. If you have ever had a dog, cat, puppy or pink elephant named willy then you have had to battle the awful FLEA. You know, the little jumping, biting, blood sucking itch to society. Now if you have had them so long that you have had to name your little friends because they now pay rent then you need to hear this. I have no money i mean NONE i am dirt poor so i needed something mainly FREE. I did some research online and found out that fleas hate garlic and Apple Cider vinegar. What i did for my little mongrals smelled so vial that i thought i would retch but MAN did it work. Try this guys make a concoction of garlic powder and apple cider vinegar. make it sorta grainy. Now add any soap, personally i like to use flea shampoo or dawn dish liquid. Work this well into the animals coat. ( if you have an elephant this is gonna take a while ) Wait for 10 minutes of so and rinse. Next i like to wash in the dish liquid and let it set. Then i like to lather well with some conditinor. (sorry i cant spell it.) now brush out dead fleas with a fine tooth comb or just pick them out. Trust me this helps. ((tip.. fleas like white...so white animal get the little demons more often)) Let me know what YOU guys think.

This sounds great and I think baking soda can help get them out of the carpet and any other places that you cannot put in the wash. If you can stand it you might add garlic to the soda also. Then you put out a sign and start serving Italian food or any other ethic food that uses garlic. Maybe you can make a buck or two.

Umm. Now this is something i should consider. As far as the baking soda thin is conserned i would also try salt. YES salt. I am gonna try this your suppose to vaccum the floor really really well and sprinkel the salt into the carpet. Then brush it in with a broom and wait as long as you can. Like a week then vaccum again. I bet it would work if you COMBINED the two. Soda and salt. Lets all work together in the war against fleas!
