The active ingredient in Insect Shield® called Permethrin is a synthetic variant of an insect-repellent substance that occurs naturally in certain chrysanthemum plants. The Permethrin is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it retains effectiveness through the life of the product. This is well beyond the life of most performance fabric finishes.
The Scruffs® Insect Shield® Dog Blanket is constructed using light-weight fabrics, particularly suited for use during summer months. A piece of soft, low-pile fabric is used to form the blanket, with a contrasting herringbone corner patch. The two-tone design is accentuated with an olive green edge binding and distinctive shield logo.
These products can be used in conjunction with, & add to the effectiveness of existing Flea & Tick treatments.
