Permethrin - 10 for flea control !! Cheap control!!
Well just thought I would share the use of this product for flea, tick and mange might control to anyone interested and has problems with these dang pest!! Once again I battled fleas in the hot weather this summer in my large puppy pen. Fleas and ticks where once again out of control so I went and tried many products and this one without a doubt performed the best out of all others tried including Tempo Plus that cost a fortune at the farm supply place here by the house. Tried seven dust and Ortho flea control for yards, even went as far as spraying Dawn dish soap water on the whole pen. For $18 ( 32 ozs. bottle ) of Permethrin 10 you can spray your kennels, dog houses, yard and anywhere else the pest are found. Makes 25 gallon of sprayable liguid that you can spray from any cheap hand pump sprayer. What I did was add 50 foot of hose to my 30 Gal. yard sprayer that also has a hand sprayer attached to it so I could get in my pup pens to spray the grass and all areas around the pup runs. 2 days and no sign of fleas or ticks. Killed them dead!! It can also be used and mixed for a dosage to spray or use as a dip for your young dogs or older ones. Do not put on pups under 12 weeks of age. The dosage for spray or dip is 8 ozs. for 12.5 gal of water. Makes 50 gal. for all 32 ozs. of product. This stuff is a great product when used as stated in directions. Give it a try and I think you'll like the results. Kills adults and larva of the annoying pest!! Permethrin is used in flea control products for pets and also in the main ingriedient in foggers used in control of fleas in homes. Just a bit of info for all! Use and mix as directed and DO Not mix stronger than stated on directions. It doesn't make it work better and is not needed to get the job done. All I can say is after years of having hounds, best product I have found that really does the job!! Later, Danny G.
