Nope. I spray talstar around my yard (1.5 acres: on the line) and feed garlic in there food. With 2 show dogs and 1 non-show...yea it works.

Actually, Advantix has Imidicloprid in it as well, & Advantage is only Imidicloprid.....

That being said, I would not try it. Formulation could be totally different. And, it is illigal to apply it not in accordance to labeling:waving:

the label states that you can apply it to dogs. i think it is a quarter ouncde per pint and spray it lightly. the drop stuff i used last time had permethrin only in it same active ingred % and all.

For me, I could careless on the label deal...People push that way to much here; Hence why I still use Confront etc....LMAO....

But why would you want to put that stuff on a dog? There are better ways to fight this issue...Look around

lol.....you noticed that too, eh?

I use sevin to dust down the dogs and cats now and then. If you look at flea and tick powder it's carbaryl....or Sevin, but they want 10 bucks for a few ounces when you can buy 5 lbs for the same price at Lowes.

Confront is god awful expensive. 150 a gallon I believe.

CrossCheck is not expensive but not sure you can put it on an Animal.
You can spray it indoor or outdoor. Then again, I don't know what your Expensive is.

i know that a vet will advise a permitherin dip or bath if a dog is coverd in fleas and ticks and the label also has rates for spraying farm animals so i guess it is 100% ok to use for this pourpose.

There are several different Flea & Tick preventive sprays on the Market. The important issue to remember is to rotate them and not stay with the same mode of action. If you are worried about contaminating your pet, then don't treat your child when they get Head Lice at Pre School. The Head Lice treatment is twice as toxic as Flea & Tick Treatment.

IMHO Zoecon makes the most complete pesticides for controlling Fleas & Ticks. That is why I gave a link to their website. Outside treatment should be at high volumes of carrier and at least 20 ft high on down. BTW High volume carrier as in 10 gallon per thousands
