Ticks Hate This More Than Chemicals and It’s Not Toxic

With tick-borne diseases expected to spread as fast as ever this season, all pet owners must be on the alert over the next few months. Don't rely on pesticides though, they're becoming less and less effective. Instead, do this - your pet will thank you for it.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Warm weather is upon us, which means that in most parts of the U.S., pests will soon be upon your pets
  • Lyme-carrying ticks have expanded their range, and cases of the tick-borne diseases anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis and babesiosis are expected to increase
  • One of the reasons tick-borne illness is on the rise is that ticks have developed a resistance to pesticides
  • Giving pets ever-stronger doses of toxic pesticides on a monthly basis year-round is not a guarantee against tick-borne illness. Many dogs vaccinated for Lyme disease and who are also on monthly chemical preventives are still acquiring tick-borne infections
  • Avoiding tick-infested areas, checking your dog daily for ticks, and having his blood checked every six months is the most common sense, safe, and nontoxic approach to keeping him free from potentially devastating tick-borne diseases
