How To Kill Fleas:
Five Surefire Solutions,
One Responsible Choice

by Gary Le Mon

The question of how to kill fleas is at the forefront of dozens of calls and emails I get each month, and with good reason.

There are over a million species of insect on the planet. With all that buzz, the common flea emerges as one of the most wily and successful.

It’s no wonder that companies selling flea killer products are topping $9 billion a year in sales and climbing.

But are all flea controls created equal? Do some work better than others? An even better question is, among the flea treatments that do the job equally well, are there some that harm more than just fleas?

Responsible dog and cat lovers want to know not only how to kill fleas, but also how to kill fleas without endangering the themselves, their children, their pets or their planet.

So I researched five popular flea remedies for dogs and cats, and uncovered some revealing information. Laboratory test results conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) show most name-brand flea treatments kill fleas dead as dead can be. But a whopping four out of five products cause adverse health effects in laboratory dogs and cats. Here are the findings.

How To Kill Fleas:
5 Different Products
(Actually there are 8 different products, but still only 1 responsible choice)

Frontline Top Spot and Frontline Plus, made by multi-national drug company Merial Limited, uses Fipronel as its active ingredient. EPA test results show Fipronil is a neurotoxin and suspected human cancer agent. Fipronil can cause liver toxicity, thyroid cancer, kidney damage, raised cholesterol, lack of coordination, labored breathing, miscarriages and stunted offspring.

Advantage, made by drug giant Bayer, uses the insecticide Imidacloprid. When tested on dogs, Imidacloprid was shown to be neurotoxic, also causing a breakdown of coordination, labored breathing, lesions of the thyroid, reduced birth weight, and increased birth defects in all laboratory animals tested.

New to the flea scene is ProMeris, made by Fort Dodge, a division of giant drug maker Wyeth. Active ingredients include metaflumizone and amitraz. Ever since EPA approval in mid-2007, ProMeris has been plagued with complaints from users. Severe adverse symptoms in both owners and their pets include lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, disorientation, depression, nervous twitching, and hyper salivation.

Four popular flea products use the active ingredients Permethrin, Methoprene, or Pyriproxyfen. These toxic chemicals cause a variety of complications ranging from enlarged livers and degradation of the kidneys to lung cancer, liver tumors, and endocrine disruption in laboratory animals. These popular flea killer brands are Adams Spot-On Flea & Tick Control; BioSpot Flea & Tick Control; Defend EXspot Treatment; and Zodiac FleaTrol Spot On.

Finally our how-to-kill-fleas quest brings us to TripleSure Natural Flea and Tick Spray for Dogs and Cats. Active ingredients in TripleSure include natural cedar oil and peppermint oil, both of which have been tested and proven to be 100% safe and harmless to humans, animals, fish and birds. In fact, the EPA classifies TripleSure’s active ingredients as posing “insignificant risk to humans, animals and the environment.”

Yet TripleSure natural flea control works three ways: 1. it KILLS fleas and ticks on contact; 2. it REPELS fleas, ticks, flies, mosquitoes and stinging insects, and 3. it RETARDS new insect infestations.

So, the question of how to kill fleas has never been simpler. The responsible choice is a natural flea killer that does its job as well as the toxic poisons, if not better, but leaves you, your loved ones, and your planet happy, healthy, and free of those pesky fleas.

And that, my friend, is how to kill fleas.

I am so thankful I found your website!

"I have a 13 year old mixed Shepherd/Hound with 2 bulging disks, arthritis in his hips and cataracts that are starting to form. He has done a 180 since the first week of being on your products. He is playful and wagging his tail much more often than he has been over the past couple of years. I am so thankful that I found your website and I tell everyone that I know with pets here in NYC about your products. My dog hasn't limped since he started on the FlexaSure Dog Arthritis Cell Cleanse and Joint Hydration Formula and the Primalix Arthridia and Cataractin Formulas. I cannot thank you enough for making these products available. It has eased my best friends pain so he can participate in daily activities and given me more time with him. Thank you so much!"

My only regret is ...

"I am the kind of person who always speaks up when I think I'm not getting my money's worth for anything. I am also not hesitant to give praise where praise is due. With that said I bought some of your DentaSure teeth spray for my cat. I received it at the beginning of this week. After 3 DAYS of using this product her teeth have already gone from a scary looking brown and very unhealthy to a light shade of yellow. I am absolutely blown away by how fast this product has helped her teeth improve and the fact that it's all natural is huge to me (the vet has been pushing me to pay $720 for a cleaning including anesthesia!!). My only regret is not finding you guys sooner!! Keep up the great work!!!!" ~ Fred Brennan, Waymouth, MA

Vet Ophthlamologist confirmed Sonny blind. Thanks to Primalix Cataractin he can now see! Cheryl and Sonny from Wisconsin

"Sonny our 13 year old miniature poodle would brush along objects to find his way. March 2014 a Vet. Ophthalmologist confirmed completely formed cataracts. Risky surgery was not an option. March 28, 2014 Sonny started Cataractin and DailySure. May 2014 Sonny was seeing good enough to walk around on his own. August 2014 Sonny site is really good and he is running around enjoying his freedom and us. We are in AWE and so grateful for you helping others live a better life!"

Delighted it worked so fast
Carol and Max from Illinois

Carol C testimonial "I have to tell you how happy I am to have gotten the Cataractin. I received it in the mail a couple days after ordering it. I was very excited to try this on my girl Max. She is a 14 year old beagle. She is in great shape but has had trouble seeing. Her brown eyes were foggy blue with a whitish blue spot in both eyes. She couldn't see to jump up to sit with me. After just two days of taking Primalix Cataractin her eyes are looking way better.

Max's beautiful brown eyes after taking Cataractin.

"I was wanting this to work but am so delighted that it worked so fast. She is not completely better but she is well on her way. The best part is she can see to jump up in my chair now. My only regret is that I wish I would have purchased this 6 months ago when I first saw it on the web.
Thank you so much,"
