That’s why you, as a responsible pet owner, have to know a thing or two about killing dog fleas to make sure those bloodsuckers keep their distance from your prized pooch.

Home Remedies for Killing Dog Fleas - Vinegar, Flea Traps and more Vinegar....read on for lots of great advice!

Home Remedies for Killing Dog Fleas
1. Set up a Flea Trap


Lots of people claim that a pot, a light, and some soapy water adds up to a surprisingly effective natural home remedy for killing dog fleas. Why? Because when set up correctly, these items make up a potent flea trap, which in turn, makes killing dog fleas an easy task.

How to set up: Go to the kitchen and pick up a small pot and some dishwashing detergent. Fill approximately half the pot with water (more water won’t make this more effective, so make sure the pot doesn’t overflow) and mix in some detergent.

Find a lamp and set it up beside the pot, making the light shine over the water. You now have yourself a flea trap.


How it works: Fleas are attracted to heat. The heat emitted by the lamp should cause fleas in the room to jump toward the light, only to fall short and land in the pot of soapy water. Once there, it shouldn’t take long for the detergent to work its magic and finish the pests off.

Note that you have to replace the water on a regular basis, even before it’s full of fleas. Otherwise, others may be able to avoid sinking in the water when they jump in and may even manage to jump back out.

2. Make good use of Garlic, Vinegar, and Brewer’s Yeast

This particular method works great if your pet just so happens to be home to more fleas than you can count.

As is typical of bloodsuckers, fleas seem to have a strong aversion to garlic. So strong, in fact, that they drop dead when they get a taste of it in their host’s blood. By feeding your pooch small amounts of garlic, you can drastically drop the fleas that have taken up residence in his skin and hair, garlic is a great natural home remedy for killing dog fleas.

The same can be said for vinegar and Brewer’s yeast, great home remedies. Try mixing some vinegar in your dog’s drink or have him join you for a round of booze, and watch as the fleas check out of hotel K9, a perfect method of killing dog fleas.

Word of caution, though: sizeable servings of garlic has been proven to be detrimental to your dog’s health, and the same can be said for small doses over an extended period of time. Your best bet is to allow your dog to switch to another natural home remedy for killing dog fleas once the garlic has done its job.

3. Make good use of Vinegar…again

The great thing about vinegar is that it’s pretty versatile; you can use it as more than just a food additive. So how else can vinegar be used for killing dog fleas? Well, it works wonders as a spray, a really simple home remedy.

Mixing water and vinegar (50-50) in a spray bottle should give you one heck of a weapon in the war against killing dog fleas. Spray all areas you suspect might have fleas and you’ll wind up reducing the flea population by the hundreds, and maybe even the thousands.
