You should see the size of the ones doing solo efforts demolishing my mint plants. ARRGGHH. I'm sure they'd eat the dog if she sat too close to the mint.
Ah Thanks hyacinth been trying to work out what was going my mint plants, but haven't caught sight of the little blighters yet..

I use sentinel because its an affordable all in one tablet that doesnt wash off.
For sores I use paw paw ointment from the chemist as its non toxic and heals well.
For a dog prone to fleas (I walk my dog twice a day in grass areas) I would suggest finding out a healthy dose of garlic. Yes it is related to the onion, and in large doses can be bad, but I have heard of many people using it as a natural flea preventer.
Mosty I find mint eating caterpillars by feel. I feel every bit of the mint plant especially the bits that are freshly ravaged... and the squidgy bit is a giant green mint coloured caterpiller, that you have to remove and squash. There are also tiny squidgy caterpillers that leap off and hang by a thread - but you have to kill those too.
Or you could spray with spinosad / success caterpillar killer.
"healthy dose of garlic" - I think is maybe 1/4 of a clove. You will be able to tell by the farts. I know people who say it repels fleas from their dogs, but if you keep your dog away from other dogs with fleas or cats and out of long grass etc - they don't get fleas.
I use Sentinal as it does the lot.
