How We Battle Fleas and Ticks Naturally Without Harmful Pesticides

I’ve never been comfortable using pesticides on my dogs. Delia has never tolerated them. As a result of using them, her skin is almost immediately red and inflamed, causing her pain and itching. A few years ago, after moving to a heavily wooded area, our vet recommended topical chemicals. Reluctantly, I followed their advice for Chewy. He had a seizure and other neurological/muscular side effects. Never again. Since then, we battle fleas and ticks naturally without harmful pesticides. We have used only pawTree flea and tick spray and diatomaceous earth dusted on our yard, and lots of checking for nasty bugs. It takes more work, but I’d rather keep them safe and healthy than put harsh chemicals on them.

Here are our favorite tools to battle nasty fleas and ticks:

Flea and Tick Spray from pawTree.

I spray Delia and Chewy each time they go outside. Additionally, I use it on myself whenever I’m out in our yard or walking the pups! (Disclaimer: I’m an Independent pawTree petPro. I earn a commission if your purchase this product from my link.)

Diatomaceous Earth (food grade.)

I was skeptical about this at first, but we have noticed a drastic decrease in the number of ticks we find in our yard after using diatomaceous earth. I spread the diatomaceous earth every couple of weeks with the handy spreader that is included with this particular bag.
