These properties were even known and documented by ancient Greeks who even referred to Amber as an Electron. Electrostatic feature of Amber is extremely useful when fighting ticks and fleas. When collar made of Baltic Amber beads is worn by a pet it will be naturally rubbed against its fur. This action will help Amber to generate electricity, which makes it almost impossible for flea or tick to stick on dog’s or cat’s hair. The other beneficial feature of this natural resin is that it has a specific smell, which seems to be not very appealing to ticks and fleas. When Amber beads are made warm by pets fur and body they will start to release its natural odor.
