You can use his formula for any critter -- mosquitoes, flies, aphids,
ants, etc. However, I would recommend that if you don't want to kill
these critters (which I don't recommend if you don't have to) you can
buy at a pharmacy:
Ant: Formica Rufa
Head Lice: Pediculus Capitis
Flea: Pulex Irritans
Honey Bee: Apis Mellifica
Wasp: Vespa Crabro
Tick: Gotta make this one by hand You can also order these from:
Pharmacy, Albany, CA at: 1-510-527-3003, and use a 6X potency.
IF YOU WANT TO DO THIS 'BY HAND' HERE'S WHAT YOU DO:
Catch 3-6 fleas -- smash 'em up real good -- put them in
1/2 cup water (in a bottle), cap it and shake in the palm of your hand
hard (hopefully a container with a cork or cap on it when you do this
:-)) 100 times. Stop.
Strain it through muslin into another container because
you don't want bits of the body or anything in any of your other
Then, take 1 teaspoon of it (don't bring a body of a
flea with it) into another 1/2 cup of water (clean glass), cap it and
shake it 100 times in the palm of your hand. Stop.
Then, take 1 teaspoon out of it, and put into another
1/2 cup/glass of water. Cap it and shake it 100 times. Stop.
Then, take 1 teaspoon out of it, put into another 1/2
cup/glass of water. Cap it and shake it 100 times. Write on a label:
FLEAS 4X and put it on the container -- keep it tightly capped and in
Then, get a spray bottle -- pint or quart size. Fill
with water. Put one teaspoon of this last bottle into it. Gently shake
it. Then, spray it on animal 3 times a day for 2 days and watch the
fleas leave town!
Be sure to do this OUTSIDE or fleas will jump off in
If you have fleas in carpet, you can spray this directly
on it (lightly -- you don't have to soak anything). Do it 3 days in a
If you run out of your 4X potentized fleas, you can
always make more.
IF YOU HAVE BOUGHT THE REMEDY PRE-MADE: 1. Put 6 tablets
in quart of water and gently shake until tablets are dissolved.
2. Put one pint of water into a spray bottle. Spray the
area that is affected OR spray the area where you want to keep them from
entering or moving across.
3. Example: if you have fleas in your carpet -- spray
your carpet. If they are on the dog, spray the dog (or cat or whomever).
If you have ticks around, spray it on your clothes before going out --
but ALWAYS check yourself for ticks upon your return.
The above website explains the concept thoroughly and
gives instructions for making your own. However, Pulex 6x can be
purchased easily at any homeopathic pharmacy.
