|I just pull them off. The ticks have to be on a dog longer than 48 hours for lyme disease to spread. Milton has not gotten any ticks in a while. The arc naturals products also have citronella in them, a repellent. I got a lot more ticks than my dog did. I started spraying the stuff on dew rags and wearing them while hiking in the south.
Natural pest control works when combined with a clean environment, regular grooming, a high quality diet, a healthy immune system and a little extra work. I successfully kept fleas off my dog in the deep south using natural methods. Currently I live in a flealess ecosystem.
People always whine about natural products being in-effective and this spreads rumors about them. They work ya'll.
Advantix and those other products have caused more problems over this summer than they have previous years. Saw a couple news stories on the subject. Fleas become immune to pesticides and the companies may be making them even stronger. Dogs on the other hand to not reproduce at the same speeds as the flea. after what happened with my dog, i would never subject him to a chemical pesticide AGAIN!
The skin sores that broke out on my dog were far worse than irritations the fleas could of caused.
