EPA Cracks Down on Spot-On Flea & Tick Products

Pet owners beware.
Just as the weather warms and we begin to think about controlling ticks and fleas, the EPA puts new restrictions on spot-on pesticide products for flea and tick control for dogs and cats. (See related story.)

But have no-fear. There's a product on the market now that naturally protects pets from ticks, fleas and mosquitoes.

Liquid Net® for Pets, from The Liquid Fence® Company, is an all-natural, gentle and effective way to protect the family pet from ticks, fleas and mosquitoes.
Unlike harsh chemical-based products, Liquid Net is made with botanical oils, smells great and lab tested to be more than or equally effective against fleas, ticks and biting insects as typical off-the-shelf DEET solutions.

Liquid Net for Pets contains no Pyrethrins, no DEET, no Pyrethroids and no d-Limonene. It’s guaranteed to protect dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from biting insects without exposing them to dangerous chemicals.

Plus it’s non-greasy and won’t dry out your pets’ coats! The cool orbital sprayer that lets you spray upside-down to get those hard-to-reach spots where ticks and fleas hide.

Ugghhh!!! The EPA reports the spot-on products cause adverse reactions like skin irritation, redness, vomiting, diarrhea, trembling, depression or seizures. It's now developing more stringent testing and evaluation requirements for both existing and new spot on products.

Liquid Net for Pets comes in a 16 ounce orbital sprayer and individual towelettes for on-the-go convenience. You can find throughout the country and on the web at http://www.liquidfence.com/.
