I use OFF! Deep Woods when I go for a walk. The dogs take a NexGard chewable the first of every month. They also had their Lyme's vaccination from the vet. They are good until next year. And of course they and myself always get looked over real good before going in the house. They are very cooperative.
We don't have a huge problem in our area. But, like Mountain Man, I use "Off" when necessary for myself and monthly "NexGard" for my dog.
I also use Off for myself, and NexGard for my dog. They are bad here every year, and my house backs to woods. I always check my dog for them. Sometimes those little pests get on her fur, and I’ll get them off before they have a chance to dig in.
I have a device that sends out Tok pulses.
The Tic bonds with the Tok ... And the problem is solved.
I think I will stick to California now! Lol! I saw a tick on my ex step dad's dog 23 years ago. It was the nastiest thing I ever saw (at the time.) I only saw one one other time. My 4 year old and I were walking to the school to pick up her older sister. She brushed past a bush and a tick fell in her arm pit crevice. (Summer weather sun dress straps). She said she felt something bite her and I went into mama mode. Plucked it off of her and threw it down stomping the hell out of it! I brought the body home to ask my parents if they knew what bug it was. They said it was a tick. NASTY! Sorry my friend. I'm not for hire. Better stick to OFF and NexGuard! Lol! 😉
I use off on myself, and after Arabella collapsed shortly after taking Brevecto, I stopped giving my dogs chewable prevention. Last year I used Wondercide. It is an all natural spray. This year I am trying a collar. It is also all natural and made by Lucky Pluto. It got great reviews on Amazon. We just got it this week, so time will tell.
I've never had one. Only seen them on tv
Ugh I actually haven't noticed them yet fortunately. I really hope it stays that way, yuck.
Generally I use off spray.
