Have any of you used Pet Armor? It is supposed to be the exact same
thing as Frontline Plus - Fipronil and S Methoprene - The Pet Armor
site claims it is a generic for Frontline, and it is much cheaper.
I'm seeing it advertised in all sorts of places now, so if any of you
I use two large dog crates and place them door to door (tie together with
twist-ems) - one cage is the sleeping and food area, the other cage holds
the litter box. Very important: Drill little hole in litter box rim, and
tie to cage with a twit-em; saves a lot of cleaning up from box tipping

Frontline used to not kill the fleas, just make them sterile, is this still the

When our garage was flea-infested when I first started trapping feral cats,
I couldn't treat them individually. The fleas were jumping on us in the
garage, thankfully, they didn't make it into the house. I used diatomaceous
earth, sprinkled it all over the floor, cracks along the wall, in the

powder sounds very dangerous and is definitely poisonous!
Diatomaceous earth is not, it's just an irritant when inhaled. One can also

I'm not quite sure what Advantage does - you could look up each product and
see their specifications.
I just sent some suggestions to group; some we have used and are using, and
some that I am considering, although what we have right now really works
well on all the cats and the doggie. Although
I've always had great luck with Revolution, if you need something new. It's
not cheap, but I think it is worth the price (about $15 per cat). I only
have two cats, so it isn't bad for me.

Apparently, it works on any crawling insect, including ticks.

I have friends who split doses of various tick/flea stuff regularly.
They say they get a more precise dose given the range on the pre-
measured packages. I don't know. I can't get either on the ferals
