"flee powder" for "flea powder"

This from a pamphlet that came with the new flea comb I bought my cat yesterday. The instructions and explanations were consistently spelled “flea”, but the diagrams and illustrations consistently spelled “flee”. Of course flee powder does make the fleas flee.

378 ghits for “flee powder”, 811 for “flee spray”, 886 for “flees and ticks”...

Re: "flee powder" for "flea powder"

I posted a related eggcorn on the old (and now unavailable) contribution section: ‘fleebag’ for ‘fleabag.’
