Prevent Fleas And Ticks From Taking Over Your Lawn With One Ingredient
Fleas and ticks pose a significant threat to pets, children, and adults alike. Thankfully, eucalyptus essential oil is perfect for warding these pests off your lawn.
Eucalyptus oil is chemical-free and derived from renewable resources. It’s found in a multitude of natural pest-repelling products and is safe for pets and the environment.
To make a eucalyptus oil spray, mix 4 teaspoons of oil with 1 cup of water. This solution can be applied around your yard's perimeter, your home, or your pet's fur and bedding.
You can even transform your pet's collar into a natural flea repellent by rubbing eucalyptus oil onto it, though reapplication every two weeks is recommended for optimal results.
Additionally, incorporating 5 drops of eucalyptus oil into roughly 250 ml of a gentle, no-tear pet shampoo can further enhance protection against pests.
