A Warning
to anyone using a 'tick killer' on their pet!

Melanie McCarthy


If you have pets or if you touch someone's dog that has Advantage or other tick killer on it's body, be aware that this will kill/poison your larvae. I learned this the hard way last year.

The stuff does not wash off. Do not handle animals during butterfly season - then wear gloves. It's something I learned the hard way as I said, but Dale pointed this out to me once and I found it to be true.

I've had butterflies land on my rug were the dogs lie and then they die .... the story goes on and on - it's toxic stuff.
