Does the Skin So Soft have some kind of repellent in it? LOL
Update: Went to Tractor Supply tonight. Got me some of my good ole faithful Bug Block (purple bottle). I called it Bug Off before, could have sworn that was the name - so they changed it or I am just getting senile, which is likely.
So far we have SUCCESS! We sprayed the girls down really well, watched and waited. Those big suckers were buzzing all around, would land and then immediately fly off. They started trying to land on my hubby's black T-shirt, but he's a slick shooter and was shooting them down out of the air!!
I will continue to observe.
I have sworn by this stuff because it kills and repells regular flies and ticks (even fleas on the dogs), which we used to have a problem with. Sprayed it right on the ticks and they would back right off and fall. Now I have a new appreciation for it!
Thanks for all your help folks, it's much appreciated.
PS To whoever suggested the concentrate stuff in the cow section, I saw it there and that was/is going to be my next try. BUT it said don't keep any diluted mixture more than 24 hours. The lowest dilution recipe was for 50 gallons LOL I would have to do some serious math for just 1 use. Thanks for the suggestion.
Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps.
