Top 10 Pro Tips for Flea and Tick Treatment

With these ten pro tips for flea and tick control, you’ll be saying "Bye!" to fleas and ticks in no time! While you may choose plant-powered products to protect your home and family because you know they’re safe when used as directed, an added benefit is that they’re also super simple to use. Here’s how to be the best at bidding farewell to fleas and ticks...

1. Treat Pets, Home & Yard in 1 Day!

Treat your pets, home, and yard (if you have one) all in one day to knock out the flea & tick life cycle. Use Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home indoors and on your dogs and cats and Flea & Tick Control for Yard + Garden Concentrate or Ready-to-Use outdoors. Next, treat your yard again in 7-10 days, and then monthly for pest prevention.

2. Try a Compression Sprayer

To save some time and to get a finer mist when treating your home with Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home, use a compression sprayer. It will help you reach every nook and cranny in your home where fleas or ticks might be hiding. It's non-staining and dries clear, so you can safely apply to all surfaces in your home. We do recommend a quick test patch on specialty fabrics applied to a discreet area.

3. Look Out for Heavy Rain

When treating your yard with Flea & Tick Control for Yard + Garden, try to find a week when it won't rain much. That way, you can treat twice within 7-10 days and let the solution really seep into the soil for the best bug-busting power.

4. Treat the Yard at Dusk or Dawn

Apply Flea & Tick Control for Yard + Garden to your outdoor areas during the coolest part of the day, either in the morning or at dusk to protect your plants from the sun (phytotoxic burn). Start at the house and work backward when applying, spraying siding, patio, trees, and the yard. It’s safe to spray on plants!

5. Try Pet Shampoo

An awesome but optional first step is to wash your pets with a Shampoo Bar. Shampoo bars are easier to use than liquid shampoo because you can hold your pet with one hand and the bar with the other. And, they last 5x longer, too!

6. Stay Calm and Your Pets Will Too

When misting your pets with Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home, make sure to approach them in a calm manner and apply in a relaxed setting. Nobody likes to be ambushed with a spray bottle!

7. Make Sure the Flea & Tick Spray Reaches the Skin

Rub back your dog or cat’s coat and then spray to ensure the Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home solution reaches their skin, where it can make contact with those fleas or ticks.

8. Be Ready for An Adventure!

Keep a 4 oz Flea & Tick Pets + Home spray in your car, tote or backpack so you’re ready to protect your pets on the go. We recommend spraying pets every 2-3 days and applying after bath time and before outings like hikes and visiting the park.

9. Apply Flea & Tick Spray Gently to Your Pet's Face

To treat your pet’s face and ears with Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home, spray the solution into your hands or onto a clean cloth and apply gently to their fur and skin, avoiding the eyes and snout.

10. Add a Cap full of Flea & Tick Control for Yard + Garden to The Wash

It’s a good idea to wash your pets’ bedding when you’re dealing with fleas or ticks, and you can add a capful of Flea & Tick Control for Yard + Garden concentrate in with the wash to kill any fleas or ticks and add repellency to the fabric.

Finally, don’t forget to have a little FUN, too! You can make spraying your dogs and cats into a routine with treats and pets and lots of LOVE, take spraying your home as an opportunity to do a bit of satisfying spring cleaning, and use the time spent treating the yard as a chance to romp around outside with your fur family!
