A citrus bath is a refreshing and effective way to help rid and protect your pet from fleas. This homemade flea killer is safe and harmless for both you and your pet, and is less likely to dry out your pet's skin than some other methods. Gather four or five citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, limes or grapefruits, and make either a scented combination of citrus fruits or choose your favorite fruit alone. Slice the peels of the fruit and place the peels in boiling water, letting them boil for a few hours on low heat. Cool and strain the liquid. Use the liquid for bathing your pet.
An old time-tested flea repellant is vinegar, making it a useful weapon when it comes to homemade flea killers. Make an effective flea repellant solution by mixing 2 cups of water with 1 cup of vinegar and 5 drops of liquid dish detergent. Use this mixture as a scrub for your pet. Fleas that have made a home on your pet will be killed instantly. This solution is also a wonderful all around shampoo for your pet's hair.
