Why You Need a Complete Pest Management System

By Lance Ferguson Subscribe to RSS | December 10th 2011 | Views:

We constantly receive questions from our fans saying no matter what they to do, they cannot get rid of their dogs’ fleas!

Quite simply, dogs are exposed to fleas, ticks and mosquitoes on a daily basis. Every time you take your dog out for a walk, to the dog park, or even for a romp in your back yard, your dog is a walking target for disease carrying fleas, ticks and mosquitoes. That’s why we recommend having a complete pest management system that focuses not only on your dog, but also on your dog’s environment and surroundings.

On Pet

Protecting your dog is the first step in the fight against fleas, ticks and mosquitoes.

We recommend products that protect against adult and pre-adult pests. Preventing a future infestation is just as important. Our veterinarian, Dr. Melinda, recommends Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® or Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® once a month topical drop treatments or collars because these products have active ingredients focused on breaking the life stages of fleas and ticks. Unlike competing products such as Frontline Plus or Pet Armor, Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® topical drops also kills mosquitoes, which are known to transmit heartworm disease.

If your dog already has fleas and ticks, Dr. Melinda recommends the use of Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® shampoos, Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® dog sprays, or Hartz® UltraGuard® powders to bring immediate relief to your dog before using the topical drops or collars.

In Home

The critical second step in a complete pest management system is treating your home.

Unlike ticks and mosquitoes that only breed outdoors, fleas thrive indoors. Female fleas start producing eggs 24 to 48 hours after taking their first blood meal and can lay up to 50 eggs per day. These eggs are laid on your dog, and easily fall off onto bedding, carpets, furniture and everything else your dog comes in contact with. The places where your dog rests and sleeps become primary habitats for eggs and developing fleas.

To help on the home front, we offer in home products, such as Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® Carpet Powders and Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® Home Sprays that can be used throughout your house. If you are facing a wide spread infestation, Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® Home Fogger is recommended.

In Yard

The final step in a complete pest management system is taking care of your yard where fleas, ticks and mosquitoes can be prevalent.

Ticks find their hosts by climbing on grass, shrubs and other outposts. They simply wait for your dog to walk by and grab on. To fully protect your dog be sure to use products such as Hartz® UltraGuard® Yard Spray to eliminate multiple types of pests outside your home.

We want to help you make sure that your dog remains pest free this summer. Visit for some great coupons that will help your dogs fight those pesky fleas.
