Save your pet from endless itching—and your home from picking up the biting pests, too—with a little DIY repellent. Simmer 2 cups of water, a sliced lemon, and fresh lavender sprigs in a saucepan for 30 minutes, strain out and discard your larger pieces, then add 2 tablespoons alcohol-free witch hazel to the cooled recipe. Transfer it to a spray bottle so that you can mist and rub the solution into your pet's fur before he heads outdoors.
