    Chickens, OR Muskovey ducks if you want, also eat insects, and muskoveys don't need water like most duck breeds. I keep thinking I'd like to do muskoveys, the dogs adore duck meat.....

    I'm thinking trying Sentry Natural Defense. I'm pretty sure I saw someone on here say something about it! Just curious how good it works? I'm going to get the shampoo, drops, and spray (for when we go to the farms). Is it a product worth getting I've read mixed reviews about it but all-in-all it seems like a pretty good product.

    OT I know but Ruth, not to sound too creepy but I LOVE Muscovy's such cool ducks. When I get a farm I'm getting some. I'd get too attached to them to eat them. Friend has a grey one, its so cool.

    Thats ok, I'm not sure I could eat them mind, they'd have to be dog food, and I'd have to turn the other way.....but they are REALLY cool looking, and supposed to be much quieter than chickens.

    Yeap and the mallards ( those are noisy too), those I could probably eat. Muscovy not so much, not to say that I wouldn't try it. ;)

    I've been using it since April and so far it seems to be working well.

    I live on 10 acres, most of which is pasture with tall grass. My boy doesn't spend a lot of time outside, but he is usually out in the taller grass everyday and he hasn't had any ticks (knock on wood). He also likes to roll around in the grass and no fleas either.

    It smells fairly good IMO too...kinda cinnamon-y

    I have used pine sol on my dogs since the 1960s. It works and my pets have live up to the ages of 18. I have tried the vet recommended products that are $$$$, and store bought products, but always go back to pine sol. I have yet to find anything that works better at killing fleas, ticks, and repels Mosquitos and flies. I also use pine sol to clean my house. I grew up in the military and my dad worked in the medical field. If the military uses it for hospitals and vet clinics I think that says it all.

    I like putting wormwood in the bedding and tee trea oil on the actual dog. It's great for the occasional flea and light preventative. I doubt it would help in severe infestations. Supposedly helps with flies as well, but I wouldn't know we have always had inside doggies.

    Basically Pine sol is [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]phenol-based disinfectant. [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Phenol can cause liver damage in pets. [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Lysol, Pine-Sol, and similar products contain phenol, so it need to be consulted from vet expert first. [/FONT]

    I have been using pet armour the last two years it really work well. I treat my house carpet stuff and spray and put the pet armour on them and I retreat the house in 2 weeks for all the newborn nasties. We didnt have much of a winter here in Ky either and the fleas are horrible.

    Guineas are awsome insect control and they are usually pretty hard for predator's and humans to catch lol

    I know it is an old post but it is a good one to add to.
    Use DE for any insect pests. Dust the carpets, furniture, bedding and entry ways. Dust any dog houses or areas the dogs sleep. Keep the dogs away while you dust and wear a dust mask because the dust can cause respiratory issues by clogging and cementing airways. Leave the DE on everything that you can for one day then vacuum it up. Dust the dogs well making sure you don't over expose the face and airways to the DE, leave it overnight then bathe the dogs. I have done this and killed a full blown flea infestation in 3 days.

    We use a collar as well. But Vendors have assured that the shelf life of this collar is 3 months, but in fact only one.
