Regularly washing the dog's bed and hoovering under will usually do it - larval fleas don't live on the dog, they are in the bedding.

Can't find any data on tick susceptibility, but would guess would be lower as non-insect

Seems to me that the ratio of bees to flowers is key. Too many well-meaning but misguided city beekeepers.

Actually the anti-flea Soresto dog collars contain 4.5 g of imidacloprid - enough to kill ~1 billion honeybees - not really infinitesimal.

Pesticides may not be cause of 76 per cent drop in flying insect numbers, says the British Crop Protection Association. You bet they are ! I predicted this was going to happen seven years ago, as has now acknowledged. Neonics must be banned !
