<span style="font-family:Times">My vet told me to start using a flea medication on Peaches to prevent infestation. He told me to use advantage. I was wondering if any of you use medication for fleas, and if so what? there are so many brand like frontline , advantage, advantix...which is best?

I've used Advantage on Pico since I got him at 6 months.  I bathe him about twice a month and have had no problems.  Since I started using Beneficial Nematodes on my lawn twice a year I will sometimes skip a few months of using the Advantage with no fleas showing up.

Since stray animals can drop adult fleas as they pass through my yard, he will still get a flea from time to time but the nematodes destroy the larvae so we don't get an infestation.

But I think I'm going to switch to the Frontline spray when the Advantage is gone because we just don't have much of a problem and the Frontline spray would be much cheaper to use.  I know the woman who owns his mom and siblings has used the Frontline spray since they were pups and has good results with it, too.

Where do you buy Beneficial Nematodes?
