Pest Control & Insect Repellent
While we all welcome spring and summer, pet owners don't welcome the parasites and pests that come along with the warmer weather. Pet owners and pets that spend a lot of time outside, especially in forests and meadows, are the most affected by this problem.
It is not uncommon for an infestation to go unnoticed at first until a persistent itching, scaly patches and associated reddening of the skin or even hair loss occurs. Unless your pet has ticks or fleas, such pest infestations are not generally dangerous for our four-legged friends. However, combatting parasites and pests and protecting your dog or cat from a new infestation tends to be a lengthy process.
In this category we offer you an extensive range of pest control products for effective and long-lasting insect and tick protection - for dogs, cats and horses as well as for farm animals such as cows and pigs.
Insect Repellents for Humans & Animals
Cats and dogs that spend a lot of time outdoors, particularly in long grass or in forests, are all at greater risk from parasites such as mites and fleas, but most frequently ticks. Ticks pose a high risk of Lyme disease and other transmissible diseases such as the TBE virus, both for animals and humans. Many parasites live in the grass and soil outside and outdoor pets are also at risk of picking up a worm infestation.
Special anti-parasite protection in the form of sprays and drops, such as the tick protection ZeckEx Spot-On from cdVet, offer prophylactic protection against infestations with ticks, mites, fleas and other insects.
ZeckEx SpotOn contains purely natural ingredients and is usually applied to the fur of dogs and cats and to the skin or clothing of humans. The plant-based tick repellent offers dogs and cats quick, long-lasting protection from parasites. The herbal repellent with natural active ingredients offers simple as well as economical application and is particularly suitable for treating restless dogs and cats.
Dogs with drooping or very hairy ears are particularly prone to ear infections caused by parasites such as mites. The MitesEx Ear Cleaner made from essential oils protects the ears and rids them from unpleasant ear mites. In addition, the repellent is used for care and cleaning and can even prevent mite infestation if used regularly.
Horses and cattle, on the other hand, have to contend with horseflies, mosquitoes and flies. While mosquitoes and flies are merely a nuisance, horseflies are bloodsucking parasites and can infect horses and cows with dangerous diseases.
To provide large animals such as horses and cows with effective and long-term protection against pests, parasites and insects such as horseflies and ticks, we stock protective products that can be sprayed onto the animal's coat. For example, the cit Parasitos Spray-on Insecticide. This spray works reliably on the coat for several days and offers the advantage of not having to wait for milking or slaughtering.
However, for those who are looking for a more traditional option against horseflies, so-called horsefly traps, consisting of a trap bin, white funnel and black plastic ball, are available for use in pasture. The pesky insects are attracted to the sun-warmed black ball because they think it is a potential host. Once the horsefly detects that the ball is an unsuitable host, they then try to fly away upwards and are guided into the trap bin by the upward directing funnel. The TaonX Horsefly Trap, for example, guarantees a natural reduction of horsefly numbers in pastures by up to 95 %.
ARDAP Pest Control Products
Especially in large stables and farm stables, in cases of heavy infestations with parasites such as fleas or mites, fast action and intervention is required in order to stop a further spread from animal to animal. ARDAP pest control products are go-to products in such scenarios due to their effective and long-lasting properties. However, it should be noted that ARDAP ectoparasite and mite control products in particular must not be applied when animals are present in the stables.
Since parasites do not only infest horses and cows, but also lay eggs, larvae and pupae on the surfaces, it is important to treat the floors and walls of the animal stalls as well to prevent reinfection and further spread. The ARDAP Fogger not only kills flies and other parasites, but also their eggs, larvae and pupae.
ARDAP sprays are popular remedies against all pests in the environment of dogs, cats and other animals in case of acute pest infestation. They provide effective and long-lasting protection for several weeks, ensuring animal well-being.
The ARDAP Pest Control Spray fights countless pests and can be used in the household as well as in the garden, in animal husbandry and in agriculture. ARDAP pest control spray is not only easy to use, but also has an immediate and long-term effect of up to 6 weeks. When using ARDAP spray, however, it must be ensured that animals and food are removed from the room and that all windows and doors are closed.
Some products, such as Intermitox from Interhygiene, can also be used in stalls where animals are present if applied properly.
