I have 9 acres in the country with a slough, old part of panther creek no moving water, a mosquito breeding ground. Ticks are a serious concern here. I don’t want to use chemical based products either, the reason I posted this??? So there is a problem and my boy needs protection. My house is tile and hardwood floors only. We have every type of tick here, especially deer ticks the size of a needle point, that carry Lyme. My doberman is an inside dog obviously, but he needs his exercise outside. I’ve read poor reviews on natural preventions working, but understand the reviews could be from irresponsible pet owners or dogs left outside 24/7. I’m looking for something to help for ticks, fleas, Mosquitos, while he’s outside exercising. I’ve researched about essential oils, but wondered if someone had good result with something specific. Thank you, Jason
