The weather is officially warmer and spring is in full swing (even here in Western New York!), which means that flea and tick season is in full swing too! The makers of Adams™ Flea & Tick Control Products have sponsored this post so I can share ways to help keep your fur babies (and your home) protected from flea and ticks throughout the summer.
Earlier this spring, we showed you how easy it is to treat your dog with Adams™for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On®, with its innovative Adams™ Smart Shield® applicator (which you get for free when you buy Adams™ for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® at WalMart!). While this treatment protects your dog from fleas and ticks for up to 30 days, it’s best to stay smart about flea and tick control throughout the season. One of the best ways to do that is to comprehensively treat your dog, your home, and your yard to eliminate fleas as well as their eggs and larvae before you get an infestation. Once you have an outbreak, it can be hard to control. Ten adult female fleas can produce up to 15,000 flea eggs in just 30 days! That is A LOT of fleas invading your home and yard.
While the Adams™for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® makes it really easy to treat your dog for fleas and ticks, there is a whole line of Adams™ Flea & Tick Control Products, sold by vets for more than 30 years and available at WalMart designed to keep your pets and your home flea and tick free.
The Adams™ Flea & Tick Spray is used directly on your pet. You can use it on dogs and puppies 10 weeks of age or older every two weeks. It contains ingredients to kill fleas, ticks, as well as flea eggs & larvae.
Adams™ Flea & Tick Home Spray is a great way to treat your home. I love that it leaves no icky smell, and if you have an infestation in your home, this is the way to go – it starts killing fleas and ticks within 5 minutes! Even if you don’t have dogs, this can be a great addition to your home – it also kills ants, cockroaches, spiders (woohoo!), mosquitoes, and bed bugs! We treated our dogs’ beds, but this can be used on any household fabric (like carpet) to get down and get fleas and ticks where they embed into our home. Make sure to test a small area before you go to town on your carpet – this is safe for most fabrics but always better safe than sorry.
Our puppy Ollie helped us try out the Adams™ Flea & Tick Cleansing Shampoo – you can use it on dogs and puppies over 12 weeks of age, and not only does it kill fleas, ticks and lice, it even prevents flea eggs from hatching for 30 days.
You use it just like any other shampoo – pour it on, later it up, and rinse it off!
The Adams™ Flea & Tick Cleansing Shampoo does not have a harsh, chemically smell and lathers right up like any other shampoo. While Ollie looks wet and sad here, he ended up extremely soft and fluffy, and most important, protected against fleas and ticks!
It is so important that we keep our furry family members happy, and I definitely think our dogs are happier when they are flea and tick free! Even if it means taking a bath with Adams™ Flea & Tick Cleansing Shampoo!
