Flea and Tick Spray for Dogs and Home with Certified Natural Oils

Nightriders, hitch-hikers, Jack-The-Ripper … It took five years on the road before we even saw a tick. It was Pico who took the hit.

On the West Coast, fleas are the big issue. Our dogs never picked up ticks in San Diego. So that moment when I first felt the tick on Pico’s neck … and then actually seeing the little blood-sucking f—-r chowing-down on my pup almost put me in a state of shock.

Pico has been on Trifexis for his entire life – 13 years – and we thought the product had ticks covered … until Pico got the tick and we actually read the packaging.

So, while in the Deep South and on the East Coast we must pay attention. Problem is, we don’t allow harsh chemicals into our trailer, so when we found out about this natural product we gave it a try and it seems to be working.

So, we’ve learned that tick-assaults are possible anywhere deer roam. This clean, spray product smells kind of nice but I’m open to exploring other solutions. Every other day, I spray Pico’s bedding and soft dog kennel and leave it out in the sunshine for a few minutes to dry.

For Pico, I spray him very lightly, taking care to protect his eyes. So far, no problems and so-far-so-good.

Please let us know what gentle, natural tick solutions you use. Thanks!
