The best flea control for cats can also be used as flea control for kittens of any age, along with nursing mommas safely.  This is an all natural product that will kill fleas and ticks without all of the harsh chemicals.


Wondercide is an all natural product that contains cedar oil as its active ingredient.  Cedar oil blocks octopamine, which is needed by fleas and ticks to regulate their heart rate, to move and to able to keep their metabolisms working properly.  When the Wondercide is sprayed on them they will die.

As a cat owner the cedar oil would be a red flag to not use it as it can be harmful to cats.  Read how this cedar oil is processed making it safe for cats and kittens of all ages:

As you can see, the Wondercide cedar oil is phenol-free and that is the harmful ingredient in many essential oils that can be harmful to cats and kittens.  So you can rest assured that your feline friends will be safe using the Wondercide natural flea and tick control for pets.

Once you have the Wondercide you can follow these easy steps to keep your cats and kittens flea free!

Step 1:  Rub your cat or kittens fur in the opposite direction of hair growth and lightly mist the neck, back, belly, legs, feet and tail.  Don’t saturate them just a mist is plenty.  Then gently rub it down to the skin.

Step 2:  For the heads of your cats or kittens, spray directly on your hands and rub gently around the ears and neck.

*You can repeat this every few days if your treating your cat for fleas or use it bi-weekly as a preventative measure.  Although this is safe to use with other flea medications, you won’t need to.  The Wondercide works incredibly well all by itself preventing both fleas and ticks on your feline friends 🙂

Wondercide has a flea spray for the house that is one of the best flea controls for the home.  

Getting the fleas out of your house can be done in 3 simple steps.  You will need to repeat the steps for a week or so but it will be well worth it to get rid of these horrible pests.  If you have pets, you will need to treat them for fleas as well.  Otherwise your problem will never go away and continue to get worse.

If you have a dog or puppy, you can follow directions here:  Best Flea & Tick Prevention For Dogs
If you have a cat or kitten, you can follow directions here:  Best Flea & Tick Prevention For Cats

Step 1:  Washing bedding, blankets & throw rugs

Strip your bedding down to the mattress, including mattress pads!  Take all of your blankets and comforters along with any throw rugs that you can fit into your washer machine.  You’re going to wash all of these things in the hottest water temperature you can.  Then you will dry them on your highest heat setting in your dryer.  You could also do this right at your local laundromat, they usually have very heavy duty machines.


Step 2:  Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum

this is a very important step because it will suck up any existing flea eggs and larvae stages of the fleas. You will want to move furniture so that you’re getting all of the areas of your carpets and even wood or linoleum flooring. Concentrate on corners and around molding on the floors. Fleas and all of it’s life stages can hide everywhere!

You will need to vacuum all of your furniture also, removing the cushions and vacuuming them as well.  If you have curtains that hang to the floor or around your furniture, you’ll need to either wash them, which I recommend or vacuum them very well.

After vacuuming be sure to empty the canisters or replace the vacuum bags.  Throw the garbage out immediately after doing this!  Fleas can stay alive in the garbage and could come right back out.  Wash bagless canisters with warm soapy water after emptying.


Step 3:  Spray your entire home
including furniture, bare mattresses, throw pillows and carpeting that can’t be washed with Wondercide Natural Indoor Pest Control Spray.  There are many varieties of home flea sprays that are available on the market but I prefer this over anything else.  It’s all natural, so no harsh chemicals that can make you sick and it’s safe for children and pets of all ages even if it’s digested.  You can also mop your floors with the Wondercide as an extra precaution against any fleas surviving.


Repeat these 3 steps at least once a week until you have no signs of fleas in your home!
If you see fleas in a particular area, just spray the area with the Wondercide.  You will see a huge improvement the first day that you take these 3 steps.  If you have pets try and keep them in a certain area of the home if possible, like the kitchen, until all signs of fleas are gone on them as well!


Best Flea & Tick Prevention For Dogs

The best flea treatment for dogs is also the best flea and tick prevention for dogs.

There is one product that not only treats adult fleas and its life stages, egg, larvae and pupae but is also the best flea and tick preventative measure you can take for your dogs.

Wondercide not only kills existing fleas and ticks but can be used as a monthly treatment also as a preventative measure against these pests.  This product is safe for dogs and puppies at any age, even nursing mommas!

If you’re headed out for a walk or to the park, lightly mist your dog before or after to repel and kill any fleas or ticks that hitched a ride home. You can also spray pet bedding and furniture where your dog likes to spend time. To use on your dog, simply rub the coat in the reverse direction, spray, and rub in. Spray the body, legs, tail, belly, and armpits. Spritz into your hands to rub onto your dog’s ears and face. Repeat 2-3 times per week or as needed.

Wondercide is safe to use with other flea and tick preventative medications but I was able to make Wondercide the only product that I needed to use on my pets.  I spray it on them weekly during the warmer months and once a month during the winter months, since fleas aren’t as much a problem and my pets are indoors more than summer months.

If your dog already has fleas or ticks,

you’re going to want to treat the inside of your home as well with the same product you use on your dogs.  Although the product names are different, Wondercide Flea & Tick Control for Pets & Wondercides Indoor Pest Control, they have the same formulation and may safely be used interchangeably. They are simply labeled differently for end use and compliance reasons.

You can spray the Wondercide directly on your furniture, pet bedding, curtains, carpets and even mop your floors with it to kill any existing fleas and ticks that are around your home.  I would wash all bedding, both your pets and yours if your dog sleeps with you, in the hottest water you can and then dry on the highest heat setting to kill the fleas and the fleas life stages.  If you see fleas or ticks anywhere around your home or on your pets, just spray directly where you see them!

For existing ticks on your dog,

spray the Wondercide directly on the tick and rub it in to the skin.  Within minutes the tick will die and you can safely remove the tick from your dogs skin.  This truly is an amazing product and being all natural you don’t need to worry about any harsh chemicals hurting your beloved best friend! 🙂

Best Flea Medicine Kittens Can Use

When you bring home your new kitten and find that they have fleas, you need to get rid of them immediately.  Let’s kittens look at some of the best flea medicine kittens can use to safely get rid of the fleas.

If your kitten is under 8 weeks of age they shouldn’t be treated with a topical flea medication or any chemicals at all.  The topical flea medications can cause your kitten to become severely sick and could potentially kill your kitten.  I have directions to safely remove fleas from your kitten that is under 8 weeks of age on my page Kitten Fleas.


Wondercide is an all natural product that I’ve personally used on my kittens as a preventative measure against fleas.

natural dog flea treatment

EVOLV By Wondercide

It truly works extremely well and is non toxic to anyone that comes in contact with it.  It’s safe for kittens at any age, this does come in both lemongrass and cedar varieties.  Cedar oil can be poisonous to cats but the cedar oil used by Wondercide doesn’t have phenols, or phenolic compounds.  That is what is what makes many essential oils poisonous to our feline friends.  You can read more about the ingredients of the cedar spray that Wondercide produces here. This is the definitely one of the best flea medicines kittens can use no matter how young they are.




If your opting toward a monthly topical flea treatment for your kitten you may want to consider frontline.  This is put on your kitten once a month between their shoulder blades at the base of their neck.  Just make sure that its not in a spot that they can lick, kittens are very flexible.  You want to rub the flea treatment right into their skin, it will leave a greasy spot for a couple of days but it does start working immediately to kill adult fleas and their eggs.

Bayer Soresto

bayer soresto

Bayer Soresto

There is a new product out called Bayer Soresto, this product claims to work just like the topical flea medications but with the use of a collar that offers sustained release technology.  This means that over an 8 month period the collar releases the flea killing ingredients into the collar and your pet absorbs the flea medication through their skin.  It claims to be as effective as topical treatments but works for 8 months instead of only 1 and it doesn’t leave the greasy residue that topical treatments do.  I’ve never used this but I can see the attraction to the ease of use for such a long period of time.

This product does have very mixed reviews though so if you do decide to try this I’d recommend keeping a close eye on your kittens health for the first month.  Many people who have used this product are beyond happy with the results of the fleas dying and ticks staying off their kittens and cats.  However other people are complaining of their kittens and cats becoming lethargic and very ill from the collars as well as the collar leaving red soars around the neckline due to a severe reaction.

Along with using a flea medicine on your kitten, remember that it’s important to treat their living environment as well.  If you don’t kill the fleas inside and kill the fleas outside where your kitten plays and sleeps, then your flea problem can get much worse very quickly.

The products that I’ve suggested above have been used on my own kittens and cats, except for the Bayer Soresto collar.   I can personally say that the Wondercide and the Frontline have never caused my feline friends to become ill or hurt at all.  I’ve had great success with them and recommend them to my friends and family as well.  If you’ve tried any of the products please leave a comment below and share your experience with the products.  Especially the  Bayer Soresto being that I have no personal experience with this product and it does have mixed reviews.

I hope I was helpful in your search for the best flea medicines that your kitten can use!  🙂

Are you looking for help in providing your pet with flea control?

It’s not a hard task but it does need to be done to prevent flea infestations in your home along with on your pets. Lets look at some basic preventative measures you can take to prevent fleas on your pets.

Pet flea control

Topical Medications

Topical flea medications are a great choice to start with your flea prevention

There are many varieties to choose from and the price range is extensive, anywhere from $10-$60 + for a 3 month supply.  To be perfectly honest, you can go for the high end brands like Frontline and Advantage but they have had some complaints about the effectiveness of the products.  I know that in 2013 there was a lot of unhappy customers because it just wasn’t working the way it use to.  Either the fleas had become immune to the chemicals or the product was more diluted than in previous years.  I know that I used it religiously on my pets and that year it just didn’t work!  I ended up having a major flea infestation in my home and on my pets.

There are many other brands out there

that can be used effectively and are much more cost efficient for your pets flea control.  I ended switching to Hartz First Defense when Frontline and Advantage weren’t working as promised. Not only did it kill the fleas on my pets but it was a huge help in getting the flea infestation under control within my home and for a fraction of the cost.

Pet Flea Control

Oral Flea Medications

If you don’t want to use a liquid monthly flea medication

there are oral flea medications that you can give your pet monthly to control fleas.  I haven’t tried them myself with my pets but they do have great reviews as far as the ability to prevent and kill existing fleas.  Capstar is an oral medication for cats and dogs and will kill the existing fleas along with any new ones that hatch on the host, your pet.  This product starts at about $25 per package with a 6 month supply.

If you don’t want to use a topical or oral flea medication

natural dog flea treatment


with your pets there is another effective option out there that you can use, EVOLV by Wonderside.  This comes in aspray bottle and is available in a Cedar and Lemon-grass scent.  I have this for my pets as well and I spray it on them a few times a week.  It is very effective against fleas in all of their life stages.  You simply spray it on and use your pets comb or brush to disperse it through your pets coat to the skin.  This product can also be used on your furniture and carpets to kill existing fleas and all of their life stages.  This is a very effective product for flea control and can be used safely on kittens and puppies as well.

If you are just starting flea prevention

for your pets to keep them from becoming a host to the flea then any of the above products are a perfect preventative measure.  However if your pets already have fleas you will want to take steps to remove the fleas from your home both indoors and outdoors to keep you and your pets safe and healthy. Visit any of the following pages to find step by step instructions to remove fleas permanently from your environment.

Can Fleas Survive Winter?

Print this pageEmail this to someoneShare on FacebookShare on Google+Pin on PinterestTweet about this on TwitterShare on TumblrShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInDigg thisBuffer this pageShare on Reddit

The weather is getting colder and snow is starting to fall, what happens to fleas?

Can fleas survive winter snow and cold?

Many people think that they can stop flea treatments as soon as they get the first frost of the season because they are under the impression that fleas are dead from the cold.

Can Fleas Survive Winter

Fleas in Dog Print

Unfortunately this is not true, fleas do not die off when we have a frost or when the snow starts falling.  The flea can survive winter no matter how cold it gets!  The flea egg can survive winter outside in your yard during the coldest weather.

How can fleas survive winter cold, snow and ice?  They do this just like bees, flies and other outdoor bugs, they hibernate.  Unless the flea eggs are killed off outside and inside your home, they will continue to hatch and be a nuisance to your pets and family.

Although the other flea life stages may die off outside during the cold winter months, the flea egg can survive just to hatch in the spring. When the flea egg hatches it is able to  start the whole flea life cycle over again.

How can fleas survive winter and what can I do to prevent them from surviving?

You can prevent the flea eggs hatching outside in your yard with some very simple steps. Before the spring temperatures outside start reaching above 65-70 degrees overnight you will need to treat the outside of your home for fleas.  Taking the steps to do this will be very beneficial for your pets and your family and will help your home from becoming flea infested.

If your pets are showing signs of fleas in the winter, you should treat them either with a natural flea regimen or topical monthly treatments.  There have been many complaints from people about the topical monthly flea medications not working effectively on pets.  If you are using a topical flea medication on your pets you may want to consider using EVOLV along with the topical flea meds.  EVOLV is an all natural flea medication that you spray directly on your pets coat and is safe to use along with the monthly flea medications on your pet.  The EVOLV spray can also be sprayed on carpets, furniture and bedding without having to worry about harsh chemicals or stains.

If you would like to offer any information about fleas in the winter months, please leave it below.  If you have any questions about flea control in the winter, please leave your question below and I will get right back to you! 🙂

Fleas do survive and breed in the winter

Unfortunately fleas can live through all types of weather.  It doesn’t matter if it is cold, hot, rain or snow, the fleas find a way to survive!  The flea is a very resilient annoying creature that can adapt in all climates.

If you think your pets have fleas on them, it would probably be a good idea to treat them for the fleas before it gets out of control.

If the climate in your area is cold, killing the fleas off can be done with just a little bit of work.  You will have to treat your pets for fleas and the inside of your home.  There are many ways to get the fleas out of your homes and off your pets.

You may choose to treat your home with natural flea removal products.  This isn’t a bad idea, especially if it’s to cold for your windows to be open so that chemical products can be aired out of your home.  Flea bombs and chemical sprays do work for flea removal, but you should be able to open your windows to allow the chemicals to air out.

Using natural products, such as EVOLV, diatomaceous earth and salt, do not need to be aired out after using them for flea removal.  These are all completely natural flea removal products that are safe for you, your family and pets to be around.

If you take some steps to kill the fleas in your yard, pets and home, you won’t have to worry about, when do fleas die off?  You’ll be able to relax and enjoy the winter months without these pesky critters annoying you and your pets.

Do Fleas Die Winter Months?

Do fleas die winter months?

Many people are wondering about this, so I thought I would write a post about it.  The   answer is NO!  Fleas will stay alive on your pet during winter months.  You would think

do fleas die winter months

Fleas In Snow

that they would die out because they are so small but they are survivors.

Fleas are survivors, and can live through excessive heat and cold.  The flea egg will lay dormant for up to a year, or until a host becomes available for them to get their first feeding from, usually your dog or cat. The vibrations, from walking, breathing, talking, barking or meowing, can trigger the fleas survival mode, and tells them to hatch because they have a meal available. Even if it is extremely hot or cold the flea will hatch when they know a host is available.

I personally don’t continue treating my pets with topical flea treatments, I use flea traps to catch the fleas as soon as they hatch inside my home.  New fleas are going to go for the heat and blood.  If you put flea traps around your home, whether they’re home-made or if they’re store bought, they will get caught and die before your pet gets completely infested.

Make sure that you have a light attached to what ever flea trap you decide to use, the flea is attracted to the heat of the light!  They will jump toward the light and fall to it’s demise into the flea trap.

Make sure that you vacuum everyday!  This may sound very petty, but fleas will reproduce extremely quickly, vacuuming everyday will suck up a lot of the fleas life stages, never giving them the chance to reproduce.  It’s really a simple measure that help a lot.

You don ‘t want to bathe your pet to much, especially during the winter months.  It’s cold

do fleas die winter months

Fleas on host hatched from the snow

and because we have our homes heated their skin is more likely to become dried out.  Comb your pet with a flea comb regularly.  You will need to give them a flea bath in the beginning but using a flea comb with either a home-made flea spray or the EVOLV, which is what I use, is a simple way to effectively kill the fleas on your pet.

You should treat the outside of your home before the weather gets above 60 degrees at night, to kill any dormant flea eggs that are lingering outside, waiting for a host.  If you kill them before they get the chance to hatch and reproduce, you will be ahead of the  game when the warm summer weather comes.

The answer to your question, do fleas die winter months, no, they are resilient little critters and they will invade your home and your pets when given the chance.  Don’t stop your flea control just because the weather has gotten chilly!
