    Default Permoxin-is It Good As Flea Control Spray?

    Hello,

    I am wondering if Permoxin spray (mixed with methylated spirit?) is effective.
    Has anyone used it? What is your opinion on it?

    Thanks

    Hi

    Will do. Perhaps I do some research on the product. I am just preparing for summer as I have some credit on Paypal.

    I use it... but mine mixes with water. Load it in the spraypack, and off I go. Have to be ultra careful to keep the cats away while it is wet though, as it is harmful for cats. Find it excellent treatment for fleas- unless my animals have to go to a kennel, I dont treat for fleas any other way, and have never ever seen a flea here.... yet.....!

    Same as V&F, we mix with water. We still get the occasional flea during summer though. Our soil is very sandy and even though OH regularly sprays the garden with it during summer we still get some of the little bastards.

    Remember if they get wet you have to reapply. It's not waterproof.

    Default Permoxin-follow up and more question esp to V&F, Ruthless

    Hi,

    I tried permoxin as a preventative way before a dog park. The instruction says weekly application but I am wondering if i can apply more frequently, if fleas are present.

    Choppa-I think dogs were not happy about the application and it took time to dry out completely. I will try with methylated spirit next time as my dogs skin has no broken skin. I must admit that it irritated my eyes a bit-i found this very unusual as I wear contacts-must be strong stuff.

    I would appreciate if someone share experiences on how often I can apply/reapply permoxin.

    Thanks

    I used it a while ago and found it worked really well For long term prevention though I found that advantage or something similar worked better and you don't have to apply it as often.

    My dogs have been on Comfortis and do not have fleas but I am concerned if they may get them.
    I go camping, walking around the lake and river, and regular access to dog parks, so I want to use Permoxin as a preventative way to those nasties. I guess once a week application will do as they are also on Comfortis, unless they swim etc.

    I'm about to start feeding my dog "proban" as a preventative when we visit the hunter valley nsw. She will get a top spot of revolution as well.
