    Some people suggest apple cider vinegar might repel ticks, apparently ticks don't like the smell of it and it  is harmless to cats and dogs. Here are the instructions on how to give it to them.

    Wild Oil of Oregano is a highly praised, cure-all herbal remedy. I used it to cure my pneumonia last month without having to see a doctor.

    It is also very effective in killing ticks and treating Lyme disease. Do a little research on it, it is a great remedy to keep in your medicine cabinet.

    no need to post any advice. Advices I read are enough for me to leave positive votes. I am learning with questions and answers anywhere in the topic I like. Voted up!

    Garlic is in my opinion the best solution. It kills bacteria on the bite, helping prevent future infection. Just apply a raw piece directly to the bite. To keep them from getting on them they can be washed in vinegar and then sprinkled with garlic powder. This will also keep fleas away. A small amount of vinegar  can also be added to their water to help prevent bugs and will give them a shiny coat!
