7 home remedies for fleas on cats

You probably have never come across the term Ctenocephalides felis before, but this should naturally not bother you, most likely don’t care what it means anyway.

However, if you are having a pest problem with fleas, we know you just might want to know more about it. So! Let me give you a heads-up on the challenges you are facing, and a few ways to stop them.

Ctenocephalides felis is the name of the flea attacking your cat and makes them scratch especially close their ears, and by the neck.

Your cat is probably not eating well, because it is in pain and discomfort, therefore, you need to fix this fast.

This dark brown to black colored pest can jump really well, but thankfully they can’t fly, they are not usually bigger than the surface area of a ballpoint pen, but they can cause real trouble once they are at infestation level and at a favorable position to reproduce.

Hopefully, it hasn’t gotten to that yet, although if it has, kindly take your kittens to see a vet ASAP!, because they could be unfortunate and die, and no one wants that.

Although, if your cats don’t have kittens, it doesn’t mean you are off the hook just yet, therefore, for you to be home and dry, you need to take the necessary actions to make them safe from them.

There are a few ways to get rid of the fleas on your cats, let’s look at 7 home remedies for fleas on the cat

Cat Flea Comb

These are commonly called flea combs, whichtend to be very useful especially in adult fleas since they are bigger and easily identified by the comb.

Merging flea comb and acidic lemon juice or vinegar leaves a lingering scent that repels these fleas.

Cat Flea Collars

These are very good and effective against fleas, although some good ones are quite expensive, yet effective as they release low concentrations of flumethrin over your cat’s skin, which ward off fleas. However, on a budget, you can purchase some good apple ciders and spray on your cat collar.

Apple Cider Vinegar Spray

As I earlier stated, apple ciders are good repellent against fleas, therefore, consistently applying it over your cat’s skin is very helpful.

Water Flea Trap

Fleas like the warmth of your cat, just like anything else that can produce that sufficiently, which is why you would want to leverage on that for your cat’s safety.

Hydrogen peroxide

This is more like a “point and kill” method, as it is 98% effective. After application to your cats fur coat, the fleas begin to drop off dead immediately because they cannot tolerate it, this is not harmful to your cat, but anyway, apply in moderation.

Lemon juice

Aside combining lemon juice with flea comb like I earlier stated, it can also be used as a stand-alone solution. Thankfully, this method is very full proof and safe for both your cat and you, all you have to do is smear on the fur of your cat.

Spices

Yes, the very kind of spice you use for meal preparations at home can come in handy for this one, for example, extracted oregano oil can be very lethal to the fleas. All you have to do is apply it to the cat’s belly, ears, tail and neck.

I hope you take these 7 home remedies for fleas on cats seriously because these are the trusted recipes everyone uses today. Thanks for listening
