Preventing a Flea and Tick Infestation


by Jill Taft

I founded Logic Product Group for two reasons: to create non-toxic, eco-friendly, effective products to help prevent and treat ticks and fleas, and to help erase the stigma associated with infestations that affect millions of people each year.

Fleas and Ticks … it’s not the best conversation to have but it is very important. Flea and tick prevention and control products help keep your pet safe and healthy. You can help prevent dangerous and prevalent diseases that fleas and ticks carry such as Lyme disease, Ehrlichia, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Tick Paralysis. Don’t let your pet get bitten by fleas and ticks when innovation using nature’s finest ingredients has provided a safe and natural way to prevent and treat ticks and fleas year round on your pet, in your home, and outside.

Ongoing Flea and tick prevention is a vital step in keeping your pet healthy and happy. Your pet won’t pick up tapeworms or have fleabites that cause itching, misery and flea allergy dermatitis. Both fleas and ticks do bloodsucking damage to your pet and are responsible for spreading tapeworm and other diseases. Their larvae and pupae hide in carpets, bedding, and yards waiting to develop and will then attack your pet. Prevention is the key for both ticks and fleas and is infinitely easier than treating a full-blown infestation. Here are a few steps on how to protect your pet against fleas and ticks:

  • Flea and tick prevention and treatment is vital. Check your pet regularly, especially after a walk outdoors by inspecting your pet’s fur and skin closely. An ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure, especially when it comes to safe, non-toxic tick and flea prevention.
  • Inspect your pet under a bright light or sunlight using a magnification device and a flea comb.
  • Check pets regularly for fleas and “flea dirt,” the feces of adult fleas, with a flea comb. Flea dirt looks like tiny dark specks and that will turn red if you wet them and rub them a little.
  • If a tick is found spray it with a treatment spray, such as my BarkLogic Tick & Flea Prevention and Treatment Spray, and then simply remove the entire tick.

It is important to always check your pet for both on a regular basis and never leave an infestation untreated. It will not go away on its own and can do irreversible harm to your pet’s health at any age, as well to their owners.

About Author

Devoted pet owner and now, devoted pet editor, Judi worked in traditional offices, keeping the books and the day-to-day operations organized. Taking her dog to work every day for over a decade never seemed odd. Neither did having an office cat. She knows what it's like to train a new puppy and she's experienced the heartache of losing beloved companions. Retired, she currently lives with her spoiled dog and four chickens (who are, interestingly enough, also spoiled).


  1. It’s also best to clean the house using tick and flea house cleaners before giving your pet a shower to make sure your pet won’t pick up any ticks or fleas in your living area.
