    I used Cedarcide to deal with scorpions while living in Las Vegas so when I moved to Texas and needed a flea and tick product I wondered if Cedarcide had such a thing. So glad to see you do – your scorpion products were fabulous so I’m sure I will love this line as well.

    My 2 dogs have a severe skin reaction to the Diatamaceous Earth that’s in the original but the Tick Shield doesn’t contain that ingredients and it’s a miracle product. I’ve been using it for 2 years now and I’ve never seen a tick or flea on them. I think it smells great and never leaves a greasy residue on their fur or skin. I will never use another product. I am sold for life. Thank you!
