I've used Deep Woods Off sometimes- usually go swimming afterwards

This Adams you use- do you happen to know if it's hazardous- meaning if you leave it on and the animals lick it-

Deep Woods Off works quite well but I'd not want them licking it-

Its almost funny to hear you all talking about ticks in onzies and twozies. Geeze. Here in NH ticks come by the dozen.

We use frontline from maak and save a couple bucks. Took a couple weeks for delivery. While we still find ticks on cooper - and around the house, I have noticed that none ever seem engorged. I guess frontline either kills them or drives them off before they can have a good meal.

By the way, we took a teeny tiny jet black tick off of my daughters neck. I think it must be the deer tick larvae stage. It was so small it wasn't more than a speck.

Our doctor said they usually need to be latched on for >24 hours - and no rash developed.

I wonder if we should all just do a mid-summer, then late autumn profilactic course in antibiotics to kill and possible lyme infection? They say lyme doesn't always cause rash around bite.

We don't have ticks in my part of the UP for very long. Tick season starts in late May and is usually done by November.

The first year I used Frontline on my pup. Worked OK, but I ended up pulling a few ticks off of him. Switched over to K9 Advantix last year - he never got a tick on him, I took 25+ off of myself, so I'd say it works really good. I put K9 Advantix on him again this year.

Seems like some decent info to save money by using a farm store bought tube of ivermectin. Anyone here use it? How well does it protect against worms other than heart worms?

Ivermectin is the active ingredient in heartgard. I've been using it for a few months on my 3 dogs, no side effects to report.. and no heart worms yet, not that it is very common anyway. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than the brand name crap. 3 dogs adds up quick!

Anybody using Bravecto for fleas and ticks? Bravecto has also been proven to kill both sarcoptic and demodectic mites.
