We use Vectra and have used Frontline in the past. I think we all hate using chemicals, but the prospect of tick borne illness is worse. Depending on the area, some chemicals work better than others. If just checking daily were sufficient, I could probably manage that, but ticks are a year round issue where we live too. I also treat my yard every four months.
I grew up in a time when flea and tick prevention was not available. I would not want to go back to that time again.
