The war on ticks

We've stepped up the war against ticks and mites.Now, the kidz are wearing flea collars that can last up to five months.They are silicone bands impregnated with chemicals which claims to kill fleas, ticks and mites.So, having seen the sales pitch, I purchased two collars -- one in toxic green and translucent colour for the Boy and the Coonster.It doesn't take much effort to put on the new pest control collars on the dogs. As a matter of fact, a small length from the device had to be cut off.My only fear is that the Girl would chew it up and swallow the entire collar. When I checked this morning, it was still intact. The kids are already smelling like the collar and the moment of truth can only come after a week of wearing the collars. So, fingers crossed!
