Can cider vinegar repel fleas?

Jason asked the Naked Scientists:
   Hi!

This was something I came across recently. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has a lot of pseudo-science around it, what with claims it can cure cancer, diabetes etc and there is one heck of a lot of pseudo-science in animal care.

Despite a concerted effort, I was unable to find any evidence. So can apple cider vinegar (or any vinegar for that matter) actually repel fleas?

And wouldn't it make pooch a magnet for fruit flies?
What do you think?
