Vets offices will tell you a host of things...like Science Diet dog food is the ONLY Dog food to feed your Dogs and Cats....then they stopped pushing that and went to Iams Dog and Cat Food...The pushed Front Line for awhile then stopped pushing that and went to Advantage.....When those there Collars you mention get sold at Pet Stores instead of JUST At a Vet's office, you will see them PUSH some other Flea and Tick Collar!brewyak said:the people at my vet's office said that often hikers and others who spend time in the outdoors wear a flea/tick collar on their ankle. The one that my lab wears is called preventick and his size cost about $20, but you don't need a super bug one just long enough to fit around your ankle. Of course you don't want to have it on direct skin
This is 1 of those posts that should be a Informational post that is up front all the time and stays right up front like all the other Stickies...Farflung said:Great post Woody. Glad I looked back at these posts. Thats one heck of a savings. those aerosol sprays are very expensive. I'll give this a try next year.
The HOME DEPO brand will be called "TOTAL KILL"JK SE Pa said:So when I go to Home Depot or Lowes, I'm just looking for a product called Permethrin? What are the hazards associated with it for me, dogs, children? Can it be sprayed on the dog or is that a no no?
It's made from flowers... chrysathimums (sp)... so it's not likely to be worse than DEET... which can be a problem.JK SE Pa said:So when I go to Home Depot or Lowes, I'm just looking for a product called Permethrin?

But after I think it was Dave T posted about Permethrin Concentrate, I started using it...
Go pay $12.00 for a big bottle of concentrate at Home Depot or Lowes...Mix up a gallon per the instructions on the Concentrate Bottle and hang hunting or outdoors clothing on a clothes line outside, put the Permethrin mix in a spray bottle and spray the hunting or outdoors clothing real good with it...let it dry and the protection lasts for a good 8 weeks just like No Stinking Ticks!
Best part about it...No Stinking Ticks cost $12.00 to $14.00 a can and that can only does 1 hunting suit, the protection lasts 6-8 weeks...the Concentrate costs $12.00 for a bottle that will make over a HUNDRED Mixings and last for a few years and will protect you just like No Stinking Ticks But MUCH, MUCH, MUCH Cheaper per useage!!
