BarkLogic & natural flea/tick remedies
  • I found this product in Amazon:
    BarkLogic Tick & Flea Prevention and Treatment Spray - Pesticide Free - 18 oz. - Lemongrass

    Has anyone tried it? Reviews look quite good.

    I did a search in the forums for natural flea/tick remedies and read that some people use lavender and geranium oils. I thought I'd share this info I found online:

    "Not all essential oils used to treat pet pests are safe for animals or people. Herbal or natural products containing citrus, cinnamon, clove, d-limonene, geranium, tea tree, lavender, linalool, bay, eucalyptus and rue oils should be used sparingly because they can cause allergic reactions in people—and severe reactions in cats and dogs have been reported. Avoid the use of any flea or tick product containing pennyroyal oil. It can cause seizures, coma, and even death in animals. Herbal or natural products that contain cedarwood, lemongrass, peppermint, rosemary and thyme are probably safer."
