Can Peroxide Kill Fleas?

The flea is parasitic insect most known for infesting our beloved pets: cats and dogs. Fleas actually belong to the order Siphonaptera, an order of wingless insects that live off of the blood of other, host animals.

The two most common flea species in the United States are Ctenocephalides felis (cat flea) and Ctenocephalides canis (dog flea). There are several ways to rid fleas from your pet and home and one might find a suitable remedy under the sink: peroxide.

I have used Cedarside, which works well (29.95) a quart,  I have used probotic, peppermint, that works well (9.85) a quart.  But today I found that I can make my own potion.  Take a quart sprayer bottle, put 1 Cup Hydrogen Peroxide, three tablespoons of dish soap and fill the bottle to the top with water.  Shake well and spray on pet, avoid getting it in eyes.  This cost about 2 bucks a quart...
