we live in a large old growth forest filled with ticks. This year Teana has been taking the garlic bug-off tabs. She has had 1 tick this month and that's it!!!! amazing to be sure. sure her breath is oh-my-goodness garlic,but she almost tick free w/o the harsh chemicals.
Wishing you a wonderful and safe summer season!!!!

I use Springtime Bug Off Garlic and follow the directions. There is dosing online for fresh garlic. Some warn against. you may want to look at the thread that starts with "my no chem garlic...." it has a lot of info.
You can sometimes get a bump with some inflammation just like any bug bite.

|Blanketback||I also use the tick twister, and highly recommend it. OP, did the person just pull the tick off with their fingers, or did they use some type of instrument to dislodge it? You need to get the head too, and that's why the tick twister works so well - you catch the tick's body in the slot and slowly twist and pull, and the tick lets go and you have the entire little monster. Instead of leaving bits behind, which is a bad thing.|

We have several blasted outdoor cats who are vying for my front yard as prime property. They are also molesting our native birds at the backyard feeders, which really infuriates me. One of them even sprayed my front door and I found cat feces in my front yard! Grr!

|llombardo||This stuff Mosquito Barrier Spray â€“ Facts & FAQ's is highly recommended in my area. Even landscapers are using it more and more. Each application lasts 3-4 weeks compared to something like wondercide that last a couple days.|
