Black Flies and K9 Kelp
ReBlog from Hailey and Zaphod Chronicles
Well, since spring is finally here, so are the stupid black flies. This is an annoying time for all of us, but a particularly annoying time for the pups as they can't put on layers or get sprayed with the stuff we have.
Early this spring I won a K9 Kelp prize package from http://ownedbyahusky.blogspot.ca. One of the products we won was the conditioning kelp spray. It says on the bottle it is a repellent, so Saturday night we gave it a try.
The areas that the dogs were covered (it is still really hard to spray it on them, they act as if we are beating them) the bugs didn't land. I then watched where the bugs were landing, sprayed more on those spots, the bugs stayed off. It was excellent!
I can't say how long the effects last as the dogs were only out for about 45 minutes but it was 45 minutes of comfort.
I give it 4 paws up and plan on keeping some around for a safe bug repellent!
