Does using Eucalyptuses leaves control fleas?


Answer by  enlightened (206)

I've heard it works because fleas can't really stand the smell of eucalyptus. You need to leave them wherever your dog goes. Put them in open jars, stuff them in socks or just put a few under the chairs. Sounds easy and can be effective.

I know some humans who can't stand the eucalyptus smell. if you're one of them then this is not the one for you! Also you will need to change the leaves once they dry and become odorless - common sense!  add a comment

Possibly but the best way to control fleas is to vacuum the floors at least twice a day. Also keep the humidity in your house under 45% and the temperature under 65 degrees. Fleas don't thrive in dry environments. This should control the fleas by interrupting their life cycle..

The oil in Eucalyptuses helps to dispel fleas by disrupting their sensory organs. It acts as a fairly reliable repellent.

Yup it works! If you can't get the leaves you can easily purchase a little eucalyptus oil and put it in small open containers around and in your house. However don't expect a 100% cure - it reduces it but does not eliminate the problem completely.

Eucalyptuses has been used as a natural, or homeopathic, remedy to reduce flea infestations. But it doesn't work all the time, or with the pervasiveness of chemical flea products. It is also toxic to some animals and should be used in plant form, carefully.
