    Try a drop of lemon essential oil or citronella oil on their necks.

    Ortho Sevin in the garden section. My grandma told me about this 40 years ago and I still use it. Read the directions on the container. it really does work.

  • Getting rid of them on your cats is the first step. Most likely they are in your house too. Everything needs to be cleaned and disinfected, including any carpets. If you do not clean up the house you will never be totally rid of them. They do have services that you can call and have them do it for you or at least make suggestions to make the process easier. I have 6 outdoor / indoor cats, 3 dogs and 3 neighbor dogs, and knock on wood, no fleas. I also spray the perimeter of my property and base of the house with vinegar once a month.

    Can you bath your cat? or go to Vet and get a 1 pill treatment called Capstar.
    or get some food grade diatomaceous earth at pet store, I put in a small glass jar, and poke holes in lid to use as a shaker for applying. Then brush onto cat.
    You will then have to clean the whole house to rid yourself of eggs, and redo every 9 days until they are gone. I sprinkle 20 Mule Team Laundry Borax into a glass jar, and poke holes in lid. Then I shake this all over the rugs, on furniture where they lay. Let sit for 3-4 hours and vacumn up. Won't hurt pet or you.
    I lay down towels for my cat in places she likes to lie, shake out everyday or other day. Wash weekly with borax.
    Vacumning often rids you of them. Spray a bit of eucalyptus in bag or bin. Never put eucalyptus on cat. Shampooing carpets kills eggs.
    Keeping your lawn watered kills flea eggs, and having a foot bath to step into with Dawn and borax will kill them on shoes, about 1/2" deep.

    Because its in powder form I also poured it lightly around the bass of my home. I also poured it very lightly on my carpet. If you have babies or small children then I would not do that. Wait 5 min then vacuum. Throw the bag away no matter if its full or not. I also apply it lightly on my cat. I thought my grandma was a tad nuts at the time when she told me to use the product. I read the labels and it can be used on your pets. And it worked. Guess what? Grandma was not nuts after all. :). Good luck. One more tip in about 1week do it again. Remember to throw the vacuum bag away.
