Dogs get tapeworms from essentially eating infected fleas. If a dog has fleas, they may bite at the areas because of the itching and can then ingest those fleas. So it's a much higher chance than dogs without fleas certainly. If your dog has tapeworms, they'll likely show up as small white "rice" or worms in the stool eventually and can also accompanied by scooting.

Afaik, garlic make the blood "taste/smell bad" so it repels bugs in that sense. It doesn't kill anything and yes is supposedly toxic in larger quantities. I don't know much about pricing on flea and tick preventives since I've never had to use any. I don't know if natural equivalents are any better for the dog or any cheaper, insecticides are insecticides....
