Bravecto isn't a repellent, but it kills the ticks once they attach. The tick dies within a few hours of biting- I find dehydrated ticks on the dogs, but never live ones. It is 'supposed' to kill the ticks before they can transmit the bacteria that causes disease. So far, I've seen this to be true.
I tried every other flea/tick med and Bravecto (or Nexguard) is the only one that is working where I live. Ticks were really bad this spring. Soaking clothing in permethrin is also supposed to work, but I think the ticks are becoming immune to that unfortunately.
We are so far north, we used to really not have any ticks, but the march of climate change (and steady stream of southern dogs shipped to the north) seems to have brought all the bad stuff up here. Oddly enough, the snap of very hot weather ths late summer, seems to have kept the ticks in check for a bit this fall.
