I just now bathed my dog

We've had a bit of a flea outbreak since the stray cats moved in but measures are being taken.

Imidicloprid and Fipronil on the animals.

Permethrin and Methoprene in the living quarters.

Trivia: Napolean's soldiers rubbed chrysanthemum leaves on themselves to knock the fleas down. That plant contains natural Pyrethrum which is an insect neurotoxin. It is also frighteningly expensive. No chem manufacturer in their right mind can afford to use anything except the synthetic Pyrethrins these days
