Hi to all, I worked on parasite control in late 1990s. There's not many actives that control ticks (most insecticide modes of action kill adult fleas). Flea eggs in your house or dog bed need vacuuming and for a spray, suffocation with an oil would work, residual insecticide or an insect growth regulator would kill them as they emerge. For ticks the standout active is fipronil. When I lived in Essex and it was easy to booze cruise, I bought fipronil sprays in French hypermarkets. They seem to have less regulation on OTC vet products.  It's a stable active so good for 2 to 3 years in the pack. Fortunately we rarely suffer flea problems on dogs. Ferrets do suffer in season, every outing bring homes a load of fleas and I spray them with fipronil every 3 to 4 weeks and physically remove ticks, also change bedding and wipe round corners of bed areas a day or so after a ferreting trip to remove fleas / ticks that have fed and dropped off

I managed to get it on Amazon without a prescription. Delivery takes a while as it came from Europe. I ordered the 40-56kg tablets and cut it up to suit what I needed, worked out a bit cheaper that way

used it a few times but added pure teatree oil in with it,worked on the terriers and ferrets👍

my big dog has an allergy to fleas, every treatment on the market bar advantage makes her hair fallout,have to do her every 4/5 weeks,if I don't she goes bald through scratching..have to cover her in benzoate then,cool the itching and wait for hair to come back👍

Tea tree oil is highly toxic to dogs regardless of what a lot of people say.
