Khakibos Spray or Dried as a Natural Insect Repellent
Khakibos (Tagetes Minuta) is a very pungent smelling plant. It is known to be a gentle, non-toxic yet effective method of controlling Flies, fleas and ticks.
Try our dried Khakibos. We offer it dried in 30g packets. This can be used to brew a “tea” which can be placed in a spray bottle. This is then used to spray on animals as frequently as required to repel flies, fleas and ticks. For a stronger solution, you can place the dried Khakibos in a small pot and boil it, mash the Khakibos and let cool down to let out more natural oils. Strain and pour into spray bottle. Dip a soft cloth in this solution and wipe down snakes. We have had successful results spraying hedgehogs to remove mites. Can also be used to rinse animals bedding.
Chemically based pet shampoos can aggravate an animal's skin. This natural product is much safer, even if it is sprayed on a dogs bleeding ears, it will not burn or hurt the dog. Also safe to use on kittens.
Spray around the cages of reptiles (or any other cage) to prevent ants entering the cage.
Use the dry product:-
Sprinkle around animals feeding area to keep ants away. Added to bedding or strewn in the house will deter insects including ants. Using the dried khakibos as potpourri can also help keep mosquitos away.
