I've tried everything on them - trouble is the worst offending deer ticks are so small you miss them so easily - nothing seems to actually deter the things but at least the sprays that contain pyrethroids kill them
Our vet suggested we use Frontline as he'd used it with success himself - I put a small spot on the heels and one on the chin - doesn't deter the ticks but it does kill them before they have chance to infect
I think with anything you have to test a small area first
