My dog is on Frontline plus my hunting buddy’s is on Nexguard (Chewable).  Both given treatment on 10/6.  Started hunting on the 8th. After 10 straight days of hunting both dogs starting to get embedded ticks.  Frontline seemed to be a little more effective the embedded tick were at least dead.   After two weeks both dogs had to be retreated.   My vet said chewable in blood other in fat glands.  He recommended alternating between the two when ever two weeks or when started to embed.

I use Bravecto for the dogs too and it works great for them but unfortunately nothing like that for humans!

I literally saw one tick on my brush pants in five days of hunting.  And none on my dog.  We use Advantix 2.

Bravecto.  I used it last year and it is the best I've found. Will go back to it next season

I've gone to a chewable for tick control....I wish I could remember the name.


I've had ticks crawling on the dogs but I haven't had any embedded in them.  Wish I could say the same for myself.

Same story on ticks.  I always spray the dogs with tick spray as well as my pant legs.  Always keep the frontline fresh. Treat every 2-3 months.  You are right.  The ticks exploded this fall


hit woods for two hrs yesterday.  Two grouse and two doodles.  All good points.  Bagged the doodles.  I wasn't looking far enough ahead for the grouse.  Assumed doodles.  All in tag alder

Anyone  else seeing crazy numbers of deer ticks this year? I hunted north-central WI today and pulled 61 of them off of me today. Seriously, I counted them and had 61 of the little SOB's on me. It's enough to keep me out of the woods until it gets cold enough to knock them down.

Personal observtion only but during the period turkeys have increased owls and hawks have increased too.  Thats one possible explanation why I dont find grouse in more moderate open forests like I used to
