    I just bought mercola flea & tick spray. Main ingredient is lemongrass oil. We don't have many fleas in Alberta but ticks and mozzies.. I love the natural ingredients. So far so good.

Ive read reviews on it and the biggest was the smell but we haven't opened it yet. It is a drip on like the poisons.
    We are also going to start putting a half teaspoon of wholistic diatomaceous earth in HRH's breakfast each morning. That does the same thing. We also got that from CPP.
    There are alternatives.... we are going to try them.
    Bruce please let me know how it goes..
    I am looking for any alternatives.

    Maybe I'll try spraying our property. I really do not want to use any poisons on her either.

    i saw at walmart they have a natural yard spray i thought of trying but always chicken out as ive used this particular spray i use before and with her allergies ive been afraid to change it. now that shes better i may try it next spray i do. the only reason i put anything on my bostons is they run all over the place here as im in the country pretty much so i have to put something on them.

    We just found 2 ticks on Uly. Since we had never had a problem with flees or ticks or anything like that, we took him straight away to the vet. She took those disgusting things off and then put Advantix on him. I didn't really have time to think about it since she told us that that was the only thing we could do since our area seems to be infested. He is due in 3 weeks for another round. I mean he seems fine and had not had any problems, but I am really concern about having "poison" on him and around us. But I'm even more concern about ticks since they can be really dangerous. I'm not really sure what to do, but I guess I will continue with advantix or frontline depending on what the vet suggests and how this one works out. It seems to be working though, because half and hour ago I found a fat tick on the floor and he seemed to be death (put alcohol and clorox on him just to be sure) I guess it dropped off Uly or we picked it up at the park today.
