Is there a better choice for tick control than Revolution? We don't expect to deal with ticks but we ran through a bunch of them this weekend. Dermacentor variabilis, which is supposedly the one species for which Revolution is approved. Didn't work. Pulled one right behind the greasy patch from a recent application and another nearby.
I assume I can't spray DEET all over the dog (those in our party that were more liberal with the DEET ended up tickless.). The Revolution has worked well enough for fleas but it's almost time to renew the prescription. Should we switch just for ticks, who we hope to never encounter again? And to what?
Dogs. What a pain. My cat never went camping and collected ticks. :P
