Well, its that time of year again. Anyone who has pets knows the urgency of flea and tic protection. I have tried numerous flea and tic repellents over the years. This is year I used advantix on my dogs. Its never let me down. This year, though, the fleas and tics seem to be a lot worse. After advantix, mowing the yard, and vacuuming everyday the fleas have still been on the dogs. Last night I sprayed them all with Adams Flea and Tic mist. After almost 24 hours its still going strong. Most sprays will last a matter of hours before they wear off. If you are looking for a real solution the low grass, vacuuming, and Adams combined with a drop repellant like Advantix will works wonders.
