Electronic Lice Comb
Children
Written by Maff     August 06, 2009    
As yet I am not lucky enough to have any children but I do have a cat....who loves to be outside and is forever picking up fleas.

For a while despite suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) I just used to use regular pesticide-based flea control products. I'd wear my carbon filter mask to apply the liquid then just kick the cat out for the day. Obviously not ideal (for me or the cat!).

I then started using a flea comb which worked but of course you have to do it outside so as not to infest your home with the fleas and eggs. Very difficult when you live in England where the weather can never be replied upon.

I noticed Androv Medical had started selling this product so thought it might be worth a go on my cat, although it is strictly a lice comb for kids' head lice. I have to say it works very well for pets too and it not only gets the fleas out of the coat but does kill them too, as well as the eggs.

Yes, it's more work than applying a pesticide, but it is completely chemical-free and much more economical - a one-off price of £19.56 instead of £10 every month for the "good" brands of regular flea control products.

Works for fleas on pets too!
