Do a little research and find out how bad the problem is in Santa Barbara. Ask your neighbors and friends. Ask people you meed on the street. If you decide that something is needed, you have your choice among, as needed sprays, monthly topicals, monthly or 3 month oral medication, flea collars (the good ones not the Safeway brand) and/or natural remedies that may or may not be that effective. Do your research and don't go with one person's recommendations. We all have different experiences.
I have a search dog and we go into some infested areas. I want very good coverage and Advantix was not working well for me. I am doing Nexguard. Our non-search dog does not have to be on anything because we live at high elevation. BTW, I think I get 3 doses of nexguard for 60 some odd dollars from Petmeds.
