OK….between all the green grass in this shot of me enjoying a cow toe alfresco and yesterday’s monkey grass slumber, I was hit in the head with an idea for today’s post.
Hey, a while back – actually, a long time ago – I asked you guys if anybody used natural flea and tick prevention. Right now I’m updating my files about this stuff because it’s important to know.
See, the peeps aren’t really into adding more chemicals to my system by way of pouring oily stuff on my back so that it sinks in and helps kills the little buggers.
I seem to remember that there are a few natural things like peppermint oil and some other stuff that the peeps can put on me to keep those nasty bugs away. Oh, and I think I remember other stuff, too, like adding brewer’s yeast and garlic stuff to my food.
So, as Duncan, over at The White Dog Blog, says, “What say you puppers?” What, if anything, do you use to keep yourself insect and pest free?
While you’re at it, could you kindly let me know of other “green” and environmentally friendly things you might do around your place to get rid of weeds, ants and other critters that won’t hurt YOU! (My Godmother Carol wants to know this stuff. She’s working on a project for the Scottish Terrier Club of America’s Ways and Means Committee about “green” things dog owners can do to keep their pooches safe while controlling weeds, cleaning the house, that kind of stuff.)
What You Learned Today:
- We’re looking for answers.
- About keeping bugs away.
- And keeping animals safe in the process.
- I’ve got enough chemicals in me from my once-a-month heartworm, whipworm and parasite pill. I don’t need any more.
- Thanks for sharing.
- You guys are Scottie-ful! (That’s “wonderful” in Scottie language.)
