  • What pet-safe spray kills fleas & ticks?

    Created by Mitch on

    Hi there,

    I’d like to rid my lawn/backyard of the ticks and mosquitoes but I have 3 small dogs that will eat the grass. Is there anything safe to spray?

    Hi Mitch!

    We offer a certified organic product called Safer Mosquito & Tick Killer that I believe would be a great solution to your mosquito and tick problems. This OMRI Listed insect killer is compliant for use in organic gardening so you can spray in and around the areas of your home where insects are present.

    If you are applying this product around your yard, I would advise you to keep your pet indoors until the spray has fully dried. Also, to be completely cautious, I would not directly spray areas that your dog frequents — rather spot treat the problem areas (shrubs, bushes along pathways). That should clear up your issues in no time! I’ve included a couple of links that should help.


    Good luck!



    Good read on ticks, I always recommend permethrin for spraying around yards and in kennels. Once it is dry it is safe for the pet.
