Learn the Secrets to Killing Fleas & Ticks Dead so they don't come back!

The biggest frustration faced by loving dog owners is fleas and ticks. There is nothing more annoying than the little buggers sneaking into the house, climbing up the walls, biting anything and everything, and that's just us. How do you think the dog feels about it? A lot of customers have tried this and tried that and either had very little success, or it works for a week and then they're back in bigger numbers than before.

Well your frustrations are over!

Read every word here to find out exactly what is happening and why it doesn't always work. You will also learn the most effective ways known to rid them forever. Are you ready? Let's go.

Reason Number 1: Fleas & Ticks live in 4 stages - Eggs, Lavae, Pupae/Nymph, and Adults. All treatments only kill them in 1 to 3 of their life stages. Usually, they kill the adults, sometimes the lavae, but not the eggs. So the eggs are going to hatch even though you have treated the dog. The eggs will hatch as early as the same day, but usually about a week after treatment. It doesn't matter how many products you use, those eggs are going to hatch.

Reason Number 2: Fleas & Ticks in their different stages appear in 4 places. On the dog or owners, in the house (mainly carpet), in the ground and on plants (long grass, weeds). Most pet owners only treat 1 of these at a time. If the dog scratches we dip them, if we have fleas in the house we spray the house. Most people don't do more than one at a time. Now if you don't normally have a problem, this is fine, but if you have an infestation, they will be in all of these places at different stages of their life.

Reason Number 3: Most products are not water proof. There are some like Frontline, Advantix, Killtix that if applied correctly will be water fast, but most others are not. This means if you dip them today and the go for a swim, it won't work. If you spray the yard or under the house and the flooding rain comes, it stops working. And guess when the most troubling time is for fleas & ticks - you guessed it, after rain.

Reason Number 4: Fleas & Ticks build up resistance to chemicals real fast, in other words they get used to the chemicals and it stops killing them. A product that has been working well in the past, stops working all of a sudden. You might even start thinking you have bought a dodgy batch. Sometimes you change products but it still doesn't work. There are lots of products around today and all different names but usually the same chemical. If they build up resistance a one chemical, all the products using that chemical will not work for you.

But I promised you a solution to fleas & ticks didn't I?

Can you remember 4 steps? That's right just 4:

Killing Fleas & Ticks Step 1: You must treat all you animals, their bedding, your house and your yard at the same time.
Killing Fleas & Ticks Step 2: You must treat your animal, bedding, house and yard every week for 3 consecutive weeks.
Killing Fleas & Ticks Step 3: Change the products you use after 12 months. Remember to use a different active ingredient.
Killing Fleas & Ticks Step 4: Don't let your dog go swimming during the 3 weeks. If you are not using a waterproof product, you will need to re-apply the treatment to your dog. If it rains, re-apply the treatment to any places that got wet when the rain stops.

Now what products do you use?

The first thing I we ask customers is if they have a product they have already bought in their cupboard that didn't work. If you didn't follow the 4 steps above, try using what you have and follow the steps. If that hasn't worked, then look at buying a new product. Now there are some products that stand out that we get very good feedback from and they are:
For the Dog only - NexGard, Advantix, Killtix Collars, Maldison 50
For the yard - Nucidol, Maldison 50
For Inside - Fleatrol Plus
Kiltix Collar for Dogs
Frontline Plus for Dogs
Advantix For Dogs
Nexgard for Dogs
