For starters you can unleash some Nematodes onto your yard. What are those?
What Are Beneficial Nematodes and How Do They Work?
Beneficial Nematodes are microscopic, non-segmented roundworms that occur naturally in soil throughout the world. Inside the nematode’s gut is the real weapon — symbiotic bacteria that when released inside an insect kill it within 24 to 48 hours. The nematodes enter the larvae via the mouth, anus, respiratory openings, or directly through the body wall of the pest. The nematodes then eject their symbiotic bacteria inside the pest’s body. The bacteria multiply and cause blood poisoning of the pest, leading to death. The bacteria also convert host tissue into nutritive products, which can easily be taken up by nematodes. Inside the dead insect, the nematodes feed and multiply. As the food resources within the dead pest become scarce, the nematodes will exit the dead insect and immediately start searching for a new host.
For year round protection we’re big believers of the Earth Animal Flea & Tick powder. It’s an internal powder that changes the PH of the animals blood, so that biting flies, fleas, ticks, etc aren’t attracted to the pets blood. Therefore, they’re not aggravating towards the animal. Ticks will often times come right out w/ out a fight, and Fleas typically will find a new (non-treated) host to irritate.
The Earth Animal powder combined with the herbal flea & tick drops, doubles up the power of the products.
Last year we ran out during the hot summer months, and this year, we’v stocked up so NO ONE will go with out – including ourselves. We’re firm believers in this line, as we’ve seen the results ourselves.
For your house, consider keeping some diatomaceous earth around to put on the carpets if you encounter a problem. Wash your dog beds weekly. Replace outside area’s cedar bedding as often as needed.
The F&T powder costs $20 and is a cheaper, healthier way of going about prevention than Frontline, Advantix, etc – Even at the best prices, that will cost you $12-15 per dog, per month. The powder will surpass those – because of the low amounts required to feed each month.
