There are several flea and tick control products for your pets. They contain a product called imidicloprid....as omminus as this name sounds it is perfectly safe for use on your pets. A once a month application to the pets neck knap wil kill ticks, fleas and any other sucking critter. Once the pets are clear and clean, the house can be successfully disinfected with any good cleaner. If you don't get the routine down, you will have a bloody forhead....from beating your head against a brick wall. Clean pets, clean house.

PS. There are several, nationaly advertised products, they all contain the same active ingrediant, if you stump your toe, call your veteranarian.

Wash your dog's bedding in hot water with laundry detergent and bleach, dry the bedding on high heat. This should kill anything in the bedding. I've included a link about ticks, removal, what to do once removed and maintenance for prevention. I hope this helps.

The method of washing the dog bedding with bleach and detergent will more than likely kill any ticks that might happen to be in the bedding. I don’t know of any studies that list bleach directly for tick control. Being a dog owner for my entire life I do understand your concern.

You can go

HERE

for information and tips from the Center for Disease Control. There is some good information to have there.

If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Pets can carry any number of unwanted pests into our homes. A good start for any pest would certainly be weekly washing with detergent and bleach followed by high heat while drying. However that may not control and eliminate all the problems. While you wait for the expert answer, you can check a couple of sites I found that may help. I attached below. Hope this helps!
