FLEAS & TICKS
Why did Bengal extend their flea & tick control line in to also caring for pets?
For 25 years, Bengal has provided premium products that have effectively and safely controlled fleas and ticks. We are now extending our premium brand by offering a total control solution program that will perform at a higher level to greatly reduce the impact of fleas and ticks on the pet, in the home, and out in the yard. As always with Bengal, our products are Guaranteed Or Your Money Back.
Why do customers need to treat the pet, indoors, and outdoors?
Treating the pet without treating the home, and especially the yard will not achieve adequate control over fleas and ticks. If you do not initially treat all three areas at the same time, you will continue to introduce the fleas and ticks back into your home as they travel back and forth from the yard to the house. Bengal offers 7 premium effective products that can used to treat and re-treat this problem as necessary in all three areas: the pet, the house, and the yard.
Why does Bengal not offer separate products for cats and dogs?
Our Bengal products have been tested and proven to be effective for both types of pets. Bengal's Flea & Tick Shampoo and our Flea & Tick Pet Spray are effective safe products that minimize the presence of insecticides on the animal.
Why does Bengal not offer a natural shampoo product like Brand X?
Most natural/organic/bio products are made from fatty acids, natural oils, or basic detergents. Although they will clean the pet effectively, they do not perform the job of actually killing the insects. Our Bengal Flea & Tick Shampoo will kill fleas & ticks, condition the pet's coat, and leave them smelling fresh and clean.
How can we tell customers how to look for fleas?
You can look for several things; small bits of brown dust attached to the fur itself, skin irritations or bald patches as a result of bites or scratching, small fast moving brown shapes, or use a flea comb and see what you get.
How do we get fleas in the house?
They can enter the house in 3 main ways; they can hop in from your yard, hitch a ride from your pet or you, or they may be left over from previous inhabitants. Fleas are constantly re-introduced into the home. Re-treatment of the pet, the home, and yard is recommended as often as needed for effective control.
We are concerned about using dangerous chemicals on the pets. What about Bengal's products?
EPA registered products such as those sold by Bengal are required to be fully tested and to meet minimum safety standards before they can be sold. Natural or herbal products are not required to have any testing, and often their toxicity and impact on pet health is unknown.
What is the best type of home sprays to use?
Aerosols are the most popular versus trigger sprays with carpet powders pulling up the rear. Our Bengal Full Season Flea Killer Plus provides an optimum solution with a built in IGR to spray directly on furniture, pet bedding, drapes, and floor cracks to break the life cycle of the flea and kill ticks as well.
How much lawn coverage do you get with your Lawn Killer Hose End Spray?
Bengal's Lawn Flea & Tick Killer provides exceptional coverage at 8,000 square feet with our easy to use hose end sprayer. This is the best method for broad treatment of the yard and lawn.
