We had a big problem with fleas. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment on a plot of land and they hadn’t finished building the kitchen yet. As you walked through the kitchen your legs were covered in fleas, it looked like you had just put on a pair of black knee high socks.

We tried every product on the market we could get our hands on, from flea powder to fumigation tablets. The fleas would subside for a few days, but in no time you would be wearing your black knee-high flea socks again. The infestation of fleas made our home feel dirty and dirty. I had trouble sleeping when I felt the fleas bite me and I would feel itchy and itchy all night.

Flea powder and flea collars no longer helped the dogs.

After six months of this nightmare, we had one of two choices

1. Move (which was not an option at the time due to financial constraints and circumstances)
2. Burn the fleas. We considered how to implement this dangerous strategy.

Fortunately, our neighbor had visitors who heard about our desperate plans to get rid or the flea infestation problem. They suggested we use Pine Gel. I had never heard of this product and was willing to try it. We found a 500ml tub of Pine Gel at a local soap shop, ADA Distributors.

We diluted the 500 ml Pine Gel tub with 20 liters of water, first washed our dogs with Pine Gel and then sprayed the infected area for 3 days until our 20 liters of diluted Pine Gel was finished. What we saw was an incredible sight, when we started spraying you could see a black cloud of fleas as they fled from the Pine Gel solution. You have to see it to appreciate it or believe it, there is no other way I can describe it to you.

Needless to say, we got rid of our flea infestation and without having to take any drastic measures. Our home and our dogs have been flea free ever since we discovered Pine Gel. We have been washing our dogs once a month with Pine Gel solution and have had no side effects or adverse effects to date, we have been using this product for 3 years now.
