So i took it back already.
As far as treating the yard, i live in western MD and weve been getting aub freezing tempz at night lately. With the impending cold weather should i still treat the yard? If ao how.
Back to treatment for my dog. I went looking at tractor supply and alot of the flea treatment has a weight of up to 44lbs and over 45lbs. My dog is a 5mo lab that weighs 40lbs. Would it be okay to get the 45lb treatment? They only come in packs of 3 and i dont want to get the up to 44lbs for only one treatment as im sure shell grow 5 more lbs in a month.
Interesting- thanks from the info from Bayer. I'm going to keep a closer eye on my girls reaction to it since it's my first time with it.
Regarding the yard, I would still treat it. Fleas can survive the cold weather and they will be looking for a ride into the warm house. They MAY die during the frost, but I wouldn't take the chance. They make a variety of pesticides for the yard. You just need to research the one that works best for you. Tractor Supply may carry one. There may even be some all natural methods. I don't know of any so I can't speak to how well they work.
I don't think 5 lbs is a big deal. Weight can fluctuate +/-5 lbs monthly.
