Products intended to treat cats and dogs for fleas and ticks kill hundreds of pets each year and injure tens of thousands, said the Environmental Protection Agency in a March 2010 statement. In a now famous ABC News report released in 2008, traditional spot drop flea and tick medicines were found to cause more than 44,000 severe reactions, including seizures and 1,200 deaths.
There is no such thing as chemical flea "prevention" on an animal. Fleas are killed when they bite pets for a blood meal. They die from the toxins systemically wicked into and carried in the animal's bloodstream.
Due to widespread controversy over traditional flea and tick control methods, cedar oil insecticides have gained increasing popularity and respect in the veterinary and organic farming communities. In 2006, at the request of the U.S. Army, a team of world renowned organic scientists expanded upon traditional cedar oil formulations by introducing a quartz rock carrier to deliver a lethal dose of substance at the microscopic level. This nano-sized delivery system closes the breathing pores of pheromone driven insects on contact and creates a lasting barrier that discourages new insects from latching onto treated animals.
At the forefront of the cedar oil movement is a company based in the heart of Texas and marketed at http://Bugshateit.com Their product is endorsed by Animal Wellness Magazine and recognized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as the number one biological insect control formula, proven superior to chemical counterparts. The formula is strong enough to battle crop pests on commercial farms yet safe enough to treat neighborhood yards for mosquitoes and venomous snakes. Last year alone, one of the most prominent pest control companies in the United States ordered 5,000 gallons of the product.
Since a flea problem in the home signifies a flea problem in the yard, the most effective treatment plans blend indoor and outdoor protection methods. If you live on a wooded lot, or if your geographic location is particularly hot and moist, outdoor treatment is not just important but essential. In the past, cedar oil formulations were primarily sold in tiny, overpriced units at pet stores and veterinary clinics. They are now available in concentrates that make eight gallons to the quart. Outdoor treatments result in a dramatic reduction in insect populations across the board, including mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, lice, mites, chiggers and various crop pests. Cedar oil will not contaminate ground water or pollute the environment.
Indoor cedar oil fogging techniques are particularly effective in the control of fleas, bedbugs, ants and cockroaches. The dry, hazy mist penetrates unseen cracks and crevices in a way that traditional spraying methods can't duplicate. Fogging machines are exceptionally useful to those who live in apartment buildings where repeat infestations are common. The amount of money saved on repeat visits from exterminators can be astronomical.
