Got Fleas?


Fleas are a huge a problem here in South Texas because they love warm temperatures and high humidity.  That describes our weather almost year around. You don’t even have to own a pet to have a flea problem. But if you do, you should treat in 3 ways. Treat the pet, treat the house, treat the yard. For your pet, consult your  veterinarian for the best treatment for your particular pet. For the house we carry an organic product called Essentria Broadcast Insecticide in an aerosol can. It contains natural essential plant oils and has a fresh scent. Safe on carpets, bedding, and furniture. For the yard, we recommend Natural Guard Spinosad in a hose-end sprayer. Be sure to re-apply every 5-7 days to catch a rehatch since the Spinosad only kills adult fleas. Be persistant and you can win this battle.
