Use the pantry to deter Ticks and Fleas
Mix 300 mls of water and 600 mls of white vinegar in a spray bottle. Add 2 teaspoons of Almond Oil (which is a tick repellent). To make sure the fleas will stay away from your pets mix in a few teaspoons of lemon juice and citrus oil or peppermint oil. Both of these will repel ticks and fleas while giving a pleasant smell.
Be careful spraying onto the animal’s coat, stay away from eyes, nose, mouth and genitals.
