Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Barrier Flea & Tick Spray, including answers from our team.

Use with Advocate


My Westie has had all sorts of Skin allergy problems, he is now on tablets for life to combat this. The vet has also recommended Advocate for control of fleas and worms, unfortunately though Advocate does not cover tics, will this product be safe to use alongside Advocate?

  • Product Developer

Hi Michael,

Thank you for your question.

As the Barrier Flea & Tick Spray is a natural repellant, this will not interact with the ingredients in Advocate so is safe to use in conjunction.

I hope this helps.

Tick prevention


We give our dogs Frontline flea snd tick medication. However it does not repel the ticks and this season we have to be constantly removing ticks from their bodies. Obviously if they have a disease they have transmitted it to our dogs.
Can you spray be used in conjunction with Frontline?If so do we need to do it before each walk?

  • Brand Manager

Hi Deb,

Yes, you can use Barrier Flea & Tick Spray before walks - concentrate especially on the legs and underbelly.

The sooner you can remove the ticks, the lower the risk of disease transmission (if the tick is carrying something), so it sounds like you're doing everything right! Unfortunately, it's unlikely that we can prevent all ticks attaching but together with products like Frontline and removing any you do find, we can keep risk as low as possible.

We have a couple of blogs (Tick Season & Lyme Disease, and Babesiosis: what you need to know) you might find interesting and they include signs to watch out for with regards to tick-borne diseases. I hope this helps!

Barrier Flea & Tick Spray

Is this product like fly Gard

  • Non-Executive Director

There are a number of other products which have names like fly gard. Some contain the chemical DEET which is more potent as a deterrent for insect pests, but its chemical nature and the solvents used can be concerning for some people. The Barrier product is not the same and works in a different way. Some people prefer one, some the other.

Frequench and Applicaton


Thank you for your previous answer. One more question. My dogs are getting the ticks around the eye area. What would ne the best method of application here? I thought about spraying some on a tissue/cloth and wiping their heads. Would this be okay?
Many thanks

  • Non-Executive Director

Yes, I would put on some rubber gloves and then do exactly as you have suggested.

How often do you have to apply?

  • Non-Executive Director

This is a very mild product and so is very safe. A small amount can be applied up to every day, depending on the size of the animal. The likelihood of ticks or fleas attaching to your animal varies enormously depending on environmental factors and time of year etc, so how often you will actually need to apply it is difficult to predict and you will need to judge according to effect.
