Default Flea spray

The flea spray that my vet recommends and sells I believe is called Mycoflex. Is that the best? If not, what do you recommend for spraying the house?

I haven't used a flea spray for the house. But, I would be inclined to use the one the vet recommends. For another choice, I would suggest contacting a pest exterminator.

The vet is out of it, but I will wait. Just in case anyone is interested, I asked the vet tech if she could recommend one that I could buy at Petco and she said "any except Hartz." She said they have had some dogs DIE from Hartz spray!

This is what I do.. Not to sure how it would do if you have a major flea problem, cause where I live we don't have a flea problem. But i use it to keep the ticks, mosquitoes ect away. But there are different oils to use to keep even spider's, ants ect out that I spray along the floorboards, windows ect..

Repellent for your pets:

For pets, add 1 cup of water to a spray bottle, followed by 2 cups of distilled white vinegar. Ticks hate the smell and taste of vinegar, and will be easily be repelled by this ingredient alone. Then, add two spoonfuls of vegetable or almond oil, which both contain sulfur (another natural tick repellent).

To make a repellent that will also deter fleas, mix in a few spoonfuls of lemon juice, citrus oil, or peppermint oil, any of which will repel ticks and fleas while also creating a nicely scented repellent. Spray onto the pet's dry coat, staying away from sensitive areas including eyes, nose, mouth, and genitals. When outdoors for an extended period, spray this solution on two to three times per day.

For you and your family:

In a spray bottle, mix 2 cups of distilled white vinegar and 1 cup of water. To make a scented solution so you do not smell like bitter vinegar all day, add 20 drops of your favorite essential oil.

Eucalyptus oil is a calm, soothing scent that also works as a tick repellent, while peppermint and citrus oils give off a strong crisp scent that also repel ticks.

After mixing the solution, spray onto clothing, skin, and hair before going outdoors. Reapply every four hours to keep ticks at bay, and examine your skin and hair when back inside to make sure no ticks are on the body.
