Anti Ticks and Fleas

The arrival of spring and more favourable weather conditions are an incentive to spend more time outdoors, perhaps (often) in the company of our four-legged friends. However, rising temperatures also encourage the proliferation of ticks and fleas, which can transmit dangerous diseases to both humans and pets. It is therefore essential to implement careful prevention to reduce the risks of contact with these dangerous parasites.

Safe for the environment

Completely non-toxic and odourless, it does not emit any chemicals and can be used in complete safety

ZeroBugs™ is the innovative ultrasonic device that protects humans and pets from bites and stings from ticks and fleas.

 ZeroBugs™ is an ultrasonic tick and flea detector designed to protect people, dogs and cats without the use of potentially harmful chemicals. Eco-friendly and non-toxic, ZeroBugs™ tick and flea repellent is completely harmless to children and medical device users and has no contraindications for anti-parasitic treatment of puppies, the elderly or particularly sensitive individuals. The tested effectiveness of ZeroBugs™ technology is based on the emission of mechanical sound waves which act on the nervous system of ticks and fleas, affecting their movements and biological cycle.

Fleas and ticks are skin parasites that live on the outer surface of the host and feed on its blood.

Although they mainly infest pets, these ectoparasites can also attack humans, becoming vectors for the microorganisms responsible for numerous infections.

The most common tick species are Rhipicephalus Sanguineus, commonly known as the brown dog tick, and Ixodes Ricinus, the wood tick. Ticks proliferate in places such as fields and gardens full of bushes and uncultivated lawns, where they lie in wait for a potential host, then attach themselves to it and feed. In animals they are usually located on the head, neck and interdigital spaces of the victim, but they often go unnoticed as their bite is painless. When feeding, ticks can increase their volume by up to 200 times, from a few millimetres to about a centimetre, making them visible to the human eye. It is important to prevent infestations of these parasites because, in addition to causing inflammation of the skin, they can seriously harm the health of dogs, cats and humans by transmitting diseases such as: Ehrlichiosis, Babebiosis, Lyme disease, Rickettsiosis and Meningoencephalitis.

The most common flea species (on the other hand) include Ctenocephalides Felis (cat flea), Ctenocephalides Canis (dog flea) and Pulex Irritans (man flea). Tiny and incredibly fast, these external parasites infest domestic environments (sofas, curtains, kennels) and the host, on which they deposit their excrement, tiny dark-coloured grains that signal their presence. Flea bites can cause erythema associated with intense itching, skin lesions, but also infectious diseases such as Bartonellosis and allergic dermatitis caused by flea saliva.
