Garlic Repels Fleas

Does garlic really repel fleas? Yes, although to make sure your pet is completely protected you should use a flea medication, too. Though it has not been the result of a formal medical study, fleas dislike the taste of both garlic and yeast. A simple way to save money on pet medication is to mix in a little garlic and yeast powder with your pet's food. Doing so will make your pet unattractive to fleas, saving you the money that you would have spent on flea medication.

Hey, I was just thinking if I eat garlic or take garlic pills will the little buggers stop biting me? I am willing try absolutely anything, my cat has Advantage on him so I guess I am more appealing if not down right tastier. Oh and I forget about yeast...that's it...garlic and beer, no wonder they don't bite my husband! I think I will throw a Bud into the mix too. I will get you informed. Wish me luck!!
