Scary stuff.

I never see ticks here but I tend to use spray whenever I am out in the wild just in case. I know there are no guarantees but some simple measures can reduce the risk pretty significantly.

Man that is scary...I constantly taking my wife's work clothes and spraying them with Goat Spray that Spilt Toe told me to buy...I still use my flea collars around my boots, waist and hat...you simply cannot take it serious enough and you got to keep vigilance against the critters.....

Tractor Supply of Rural King carries the Goat Spray that contains Permethrin.....I also buy two large flea and tick dog collars. They are large enough to go around the top of your boots and you will have a piece several inches long to pin to your waist and to your hat...used in conjunction with goat and sheep spray, i have not had any chiggers and ticks in many years....

I do know you can't use it on cats as they lick themselves to much. I've sprayed it on my dogs back before with no problems. The stuff works really great!

Flint - here's a link to a good quick read on the topic.  I believe the goat spray is primarily permethrin based.  As Split Toe suggests, it's bad news for cats, but dogs are more able to cope with it provided you limit it to areas they can't lick.  This is the same basic active ingredient that's in the flea/tick meds you run along the dog's backbone.  Permethrin is the synthetic version of pyrethrin.

One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I bought a collar for Bailey a/k/a the "rat" as he is only 14 pound   Shih tzu we inherited after my mom died and a large collar for Riley, a 83 pound Plott Hound, a breed brought from Germany to SC to hunt wild boar, now the state dog of South Carolina.

We try not to feed Riley  too much in the hope he will eat Bailey --099-780 ##$%#114
