Perimeter spray for ticks

What are you all using for tick spray lately? I want to do a perimeter spray just in case. I get a ton of deer. Thanks.

I have not heard of anything like that that works. I apply DEET to skin and clothing before clearing out brush, hiking, collecting blackberries, or walking through tall grass. Ticks will still get on so you need to carefully check your naked self and use a mirror! Luckily, Tennessee ticks are not known to carry lyme disease. Equally a nuisance is chiggers.

That is kind of a scary prospect.

Some of the different game and dep outfits were making the deer version of a cow oiler with permethrin. I guess it was all experiment perhaps to keep the grad students from boredom. What they did was put corn for the deer in a bin that had paint rollers with permethrin insecticide on them. When the deer lean in to eat the corn the rollers deposited permethrin on their backs. Now you probablty can't legally do it considering pesticide laws. But it seems to me it would beat putting the stuff on the ground. A few years back I saw cotton waste treated with permethrin for the mice to build nests with. Mice are the other host for the deer tick. No telling what it does to the bumblebees who search out abandoned mouse nests in the spring to raise their own young in.
