Re: “Poisoning our pets

My father has worked for years In the Golf Course business. He teaches Golf Course Operations at Florida Gateway College, therefore he is well educated in pesticides and their effects. I myself have gained a pretty proficient knowledge on the subject from growing up around it for years, and working in the landscaping business myself. The fact is, Sevin is a pesticide that is meant to kill insects and invertebrates. It is eliminated fairly quickly out of the system of vertebrates, BUT it large quantities or concentrated, it can make anything really sick. It is easily breathed in, and animals like dogs will lick it off themselves. It is a poor treatment for fleas because of this reason. And, it kills honey bees in massive numbers. The best resolution for fleas is an IGR, an insect growth regulator. It prevents juvenile fleas from reaching sexual maturity, and laying the next generation of eggs. It is much safer, and less harmful for beneficial bugs. You can also use a spreader to treat larger ares with Over and Out, which every hardware store sells. It will kill the fleas almost immediately.
