Inucide Spray, when used daily, offers highly effective protection from harvest mites, ticks, fleas and other parasites. In contrast to chemical Spot-On compounds, Inucide relies on a botanical active complex containing feverfew extract.
Protection from harvest mites
Most pets and their owners suffer from the negative impact of harvest mites between July and November. The infestation occurs primarily between the toes, on the neck and in and around the ears. Inucide is outstanding in repelling these troublesome pests. Simply spray Inucide on the infested area. It is best to spray dogs before each walk and cats should be treated daily.
How do I know if my pet has harvest mites?
Harvest mites prefer areas where the skin is thin.
Dogs generally are infested between their toes, around their eyes and mouth, their nasal snout, and their ears. Infestation results in insistent itching with erythema (reddening) and eventually formation of pustules and blisters. If your dog begins to lick, scratch or gnaw on itself after a walk, in particular on it’s paws or belly, chances are it has pick up some harvest mites. In some cases the mites may even infest the back of your dog, especially if your pet has a tendency to roll or wallow in meadows.
Cats tend to be infested in the temple and ear regions. The ankles are also a common area to be infested. The harvest mites have plenty of time to crawl onto the cats when they take on a lurking position in high grass. Symptoms of harvest mite infestation are small, itchy, crusty areas. If you look closely at the infected area you often can see small orange specks. These orange specks are the harvest mites.
Don’t give ticks a chance
It is important to protect your pet from ticks. Ticks are generally active between March and October, but can also be active in the winter if temperatures exceed 10 C°. Ticks are parasites that feed on blood and are notorious for transmitting diseases. The following tick species are present in Germany:
- Forest tick (Dermacentor reticulatus)
- Wood tick (Ixodes ricinus)
- Brown dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus)
- Hedgehog tick (Ixodes hexagonus)
- Fox tick (Ixodes canisuga)
The Forest tick is known to transmit Babesiose, better know as Dog malaria. The Wood tick is not only dangerous for pets, but also transmits early-spring meningoenzephalitis and Lyme disease.
Effective protection for your dog from ticks with Inucide Spray is essential.
Inucide Spray offers the optimal protection against ticks, mites and fleas for your dog, cat and even small rodent pets. Inucide Spray, when used correctly, has a prophylactic and strong repellent effect.
General information: Use biocide products responsibly. Please read the label and product information carefully before use.
Natural feverfew extract (Pyrethrum)
The naturally purified pyrethrum in inucide is extracted from feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium). Pyrethrins are neuromuscular toxins that act as contact insecticides. They pass through the cuticle into the nervous system of invertebrates and trigger paralysis and coordination disorders within a few minutes (knock-down effect). The sodium channels of the invertebrates are opened, resulting in spasms and eventually causing the death of the invertebrates.
Sesame oil (Sesamum indicum oleum)
The sesame oil in Inuzid supports the knock-down-effect (parasites become unable to move within minutes) and hinders insects from breathing.
Tannin is the natural preservative in Inucide and has additional antiviral and antibacterial properties.
