We previously used Ovitrol & Siphotrol in 1996 ( the last Ferret Wise flea
infestation. While it works great-- You can spray it on the ferret from a
distance - use on bedding spray on your hands and massage oin coat-

it in NO WAY does the job as quickly and effectively as Advantage .

PLEASE NOTE all ferret bedding needs to be washed in hot water--
carpets need to be treated etc.

The Siphotrol is the house , floor spray If I recall correctly- Ovitrol can
be used on animals--I recommend you consult the vet for best uses.
