I saw some drops for flea control at CDN Tire (like Revolution) has anybody tried them, heard anything about them? Very cheap, $8 a box.

NO!!!! Hartz products have been recalled, often. They are very dangerous IMO. MANY recorded cases of seizures, severe injury and allergic reactions, and death. I avoid ALL Hartz products. just google it, and you'll get a whole slew of information on why NOT to use it. some w/ graphic pictures even... very sad. :sad:

L4H, I think not long ago someone posted something about some Hartz recall. It's terrible a company so well known for these flea & tick products have put pets in danger like they have. :sad:

I am surprised that CDN tire is carrying this product, with all the litigation and controversry surrounding it...

It's not only Canadian Tire that carries it,many other stores do.
I buy Advantage for my cats(very expensive),hate to put it on them,but worry about them getting flees.
I only usually use it for July and August,wish I did not have to use anything:sad:hate to put pesticide on my cats...
