Yeah, I agree. Puppies also don't get flea and tick medicine until they're 6 months old either, so I'm certain the reasoning is quite similar.
I'm not sure how often garlic powder is needed to establish the natural repellent in the skin. I don't think you'd need it for every single meal, but I don't know. I have to research.
For now, though, I'm more than happy to increase the garlic in my human diet if it means the ticks will leave me alone and stop creeping up my legs.
I've heard that pickles repel mosquitoes, too. Frankly I love garlic but it hasn't stopped ticks from grabbing hold of my pant legs. I find spraying Sauers's on my pants works so much better. I can"t use avoiding bugs as an excuse for having that extra helping of garlic bread and shrimp scampi.
