For use on Dogs to Control Fleas, Ticks (Including Deer Ticks, carrier of Lyme disease) Mange Mites, Lice and Stable Flies:

Spray, Dip or Sponge on: Mix 1 part concentrate in 256 parts water (1 fl. oz. in 2 gal. or 30 mL in 2 gal. or 8 fl. oz. in 16 gal.). Spray, dip or pour diluted product on the dog until the dog’s hair and skin are thoroughly wet (saturated), making sure that dog’s entire body is treated. Do not treat dog’s face. Let drip dry on dog and do not rinse off.

Low Volume Spray: Mix 1 part concentrate in 32 parts water (1 fl. oz. or 30 mL in 1 quart). Spray 1-2 fl. oz. per dog. Starting at the tail, stroke against the lay of the hair, spraying the parted hair with a fine mist directly behind the hand to insure penetrating the hair coat. Spray the entire dog until the hair coat is damp.

For use on Dog Premises to control Fleas and Ticks:

Indoor Premise Spray: Mix 1 to 2 parts concentrate in 80 parts water (8 oz. in 2.5 to 5 gal. or 1 pt. in 5 to 10 gal. or 48 mL to 96 mL in 1 gal.) Thoroughly spray infected areas, pet beds, resting quarters, nearby cracks and crevices, along baseboards, moldings, windows, and door frames, and localized area of floor and floor covering. Do not exceed 0.56 lbs ai per 1000 sq ft of treated area. Fresh bedding should be placed in animal quarters following treatment.

Outdoor Premise Spray: Mix 2 fl. oz. (60 mL) concentrate in 10.5 gal. water or 14 mL in 2.5 gal. water. Use enough finish spray to penetrate foliage, usually 50 - 100 gal. per acre (1 - 2 gal. per 1000 sq. ft.). To prevent infestation of buildings, treat a band of vegetation 6 - 10 feet adjacent to the structure. Conversion Equivalents: 1 fl. oz. = 30 mL = 2 Tablespoons = 6 Teaspoons

Rinsing application equipment over the treated area will help avoid run off to water bodies or drainage systems.

Do not apply this product or allow it to drift to blooming crops or weeds while bees are actively visiting the treatment area.

    Works for about 10 days

    By Denise on 07/24/2020

    I have to bath my dogs in this every 10 days and it dont get rid of all the fleas but it does give them some relief. It is supposed to last 30 days but it does not. I followed the directions accordingly and the product does not live up to its promise while it is somewhat effective it does not live up to the potential the company says.

    By Renee on 08/07/2022

    I've been using happy Jack products for years. Im very proud to say that this product is very safe. I live in the country so every animal that is lost or dropped comes to my house I treat them like they are my own. After close inspection of said animal what ever they are suffering with rather hot spots , fleas or mange. I have a large selection of happy Jack products to take good care of them until I can re-home them. I would recommend this product for your pets.
