In LA County we have seen a return of the disease called typhus. This is a flea-borne illness that has been born out of a growing homeless population. The disease is awful and can be deadly if gone unchecked.
Of course, a disease like this is based on a lack of personal hygiene. That’s a powerful thing to understand. As a prepper, you should put a serious emphasis on your ability to sustain personal hygiene you will be making a big difference.
No More Chemicals
We have to stop solving problems with chemicals that run off into our lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans. We are devastating the fish populations in the ocean between chemicals and overfishing.
Dealing with fleas in the modern-day and in a collapse is going to take some natural means that are effective.
So often people are frightened away from natural remedies when they are faced with serious problems because they are afraid these remedies will not be effective.
The power of neem oil is something that most people don’t even know about. This is a powerful oil that can affect things like parasites and fleas on the outside of the body. This oil can be combed into a dog’s or human’s hair.
Neem oil is also not a very expensive option but its a very effective one. Some people even use neem oil to deal with pests in their garden! With that kind of efficiency, it only makes sense to have some on hand.
Fleas have a history of bringing serious diseases. They know how to get to us and when we don’t have an answer its a big deal. Set aside some of this powerful natural remedy and be prepared if that day comes.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
