    I found a few links, not sure how reputable they are..have never tried to make a natural flea/tick repellant for my cat. He stays inside. I’m finding that essential oils such as lemon grass, peppermint, possibly thyme & or cinnamon are oils used on pets.

    A quote from a blog I’ve never read before says, “Essential Oils help repel fleas. Lemongrass, Cedar, Lavender, Peppermint, Pennyroyal, etc. can all be used with a carrier oil or mixed in a dark colored, spray bottle with spring water and applied directly to the pet’s coat.” http://www.petfriendlyhouse.com/information/Dog/grooming/Alternative_solutions_for_fleas.aspx

    And, a commercial pet product claims those oils to be the active ingredients for flea, tick and mosquito control. http://www.sentrynatural.com/products.html

    I wondered this too since I use the Sentry Natural on my dog since the ingredients seem to be safest around my bird. The product info lists everything mentioned in the last post but I wonder about whether it would be cost effective to stock up and/produce a worthy alternative because the Sentry Natural brand only costs $15 for 3 months worth.

    I’m curious about other answers here.

    I sent this tip to my family members who have pets when I saw it on Mary Hunt’s website. I haven’t heard if they used it or not…

    FLEA SHAMPOO KNOCKOFF. Rather than buying expensive flea shampoo, I buy Equate Head Lice shampoo at Walmart. I discovered this product when I had a pup who was about to die from flea infestations. Nothing seemed to work until a friend gave me a bottle of the shampoo. Equate worked excellently, and I continued applying it for a couple of months. I mixed it into a small amount of name-brand shampoo, and then I applied a little conditioner. This extends the shampoo and gives my pet a fine looking coat in the process. Steven, email

    I was given an old cat this summer that had fleas so bad I did not know what to do for him. But after searching my books and the net I found something that worked wonders for him Dawn dishwashing liquid. We really covered him real good with it and let it set for 5 minutes and it killed all the fleas. We repeated the process a couple of days later then used my Mane and Tale shampoo and conditioner to keep down on dry skin for the poor kittie cat. It worked for us, I hope this helps.
