Kill the buggers!
Ticks are difficult to kill because they have a hard protective exoskeleton. After removal it is important to kill the tick because if not they will return another day to feed or worse lay thousands of eggs in the environment! When I remove ticks I crush them with hemostats then flush them down the toilet, the old double whammy. It is important to know that ticks can transmit disease as they feed on the host.
Kill ticks before they bite!
Ticks can be killed before they bite as they crawl through your pet’s hair. Traditionally this has been done with various topical pesticides and poisons. Unfortunately, these poisons can present a health risk for you and your pets. Dogs and cats can have severe reactions to these poisons, some fatal.
There is good news. Today, ticks can be killed without poison as they crawl through your pets hair and die before they bite. Ticks can be killed with a “poison free” product called Nomoflea™Flea and Tick Spray .
How does Nomoflea™ kill ticks?
Ticks have an exoskeleton that is covered with a protective waxy layer. This waxy layer helps prevent against dehydration. Nomoflea™ active ingredient is a polypeptide protein molecule. This molecule dissolves and emulsifies this waxy layer. Without the protective waxy layer the tick dehydrates and dies.
