Hate ticks. Both of my Pups have some sort of tick borne disease.

But, taking oral versus front line has been much better.

Now, maybe I should take the Dogs oral medication for myself, but .. yeah, not quite there yet.

HA HA! Some dogs do fine with the oral, but some have very severe reactions. I still use Frontline as it works well for me. Haven't picked a tick off the dog in years, probably due to the chickens free ranging.

I know in some areas ticks that are Frontline resistant are showing up, so that might be why it doesn't work for you. At least you found something that does work.

Tractor supply has 10% permethrin. $20/quart

Dilute it 20:1 for clothes, makes 5-gallons. Dilute a quart final volume at a time

Compare that for a quart of clothes spray at ~$20.

Yes it's fall, it's wet here, the cooler weather will those out again.
