Technology Helps Pets Fight Fleas and Ticks


Ready for some new technology to fight the war on fleas and ticks? We’ve got a few things for you.

There are lots of products on the market that help fight fleas and ticks naturally, but sometimes you need a little more. This is where ultrasonic tick and flea protection comes into play.

The concept is pretty simple: Insects detect sound by special hairs (known as [tooltip style=”light” title=”sensilla” text=”a simple sensory receptor consisting of a modified cell or small group of cells of the cuticle or epidermis, typically hair- or rod-shaped” shadow=”yes” rounded=”yes” close=”yes”][button]sensilla[/button][/tooltip]) which are located on the insects antennae (in the case of mosquitoes), genitalia (in the case of cockroaches), or tympanal organs (in the case of butterflies). The theory is that they don’t like the sound of pulses and will run away to another unlikely victim.

Enter the SonicGuard™ Ultrasonic Tick and Flea Protection from Gen7 Pets.

This device works by emitting a short series of ultrasound pulses that are completely harmless and imperceptible to humans and pets, yet irritate the fleas and ticks enough to keep them away.

The pendant attaches to a pet’s collar, and the operating range is about 4.92 feet. The pendant becomes fully effective 24 hours after the battery is activated. There are no chemicals used in this product, making the SonicGuard™ device a clean, safe, easy-to-use, cost-effective protection from ticks and fleas.  Simply activate the battery and attach it to your pet’s collar with the included ring.
