I picked a tick off my young lab this weekend. Hard to believe but the proof was in the little lump on her ear that I picked off. Start checking your dogs after going for walks in the grass and brush.

Yup, I picked a tick off of my pooch last week on Wednesday, and it was already bloated with blood. Couldn't hardly believe it. Time to get out the Frontline.

Hopefully they all came out of hibernation and then froze to death after this latest winter storm. Little bastages...

Deer tick also....does anyone know the scoop on them as far as why they are taking over? Where did they come from? About 15 years ago rarely saw one, and now am picking at least 50 a year off the dogs and myself. 3 of the last 5 dogs got lymes and suppose I will end up with it too sooner or later......great.

Permethrin is your friend. I purchased a bottle last year and treated some clothing i wear when picking morels. Had one or two ticks on my clothes and that was it. Well worth the $7.00.

Anyone have a way to deal with ticks on dogs, without going the Frontline route? Hears too many stories about seizures, etc., caused by that stuff.

I bought a flea brush, because I am trying to go without Fronline as well. Had the dog out last week and picked up a bunch of ticks on both myself and the dog. I gave him a good brushing when we got home and I believe I got all but 1 off him. Found that one yesterday filled up. I heard apple cider vinegar works as a repellant on the dog, but I have yet to try that one.

Not a big fan of the Frontline myself, my younger dog hates it, but the alternative is ticks always attached to your dog, its practically impossible to find them all before they bite and engorge themselves. Found two ticks engorged on my younger dog this year, she must have sensitive skin, both sites have become mildly infected. So I go for the lesser of two evils and apply the Frontline.

Went for a walk last night thru the woods and brush, found three ticks on my yellow lab, they're easy to see on her becasue shes almost white, but couldn't find any on the black lab - but I'm assuming she had some because its tough to see black ticks on a black dog.

They got their first treatment of Frontline before I went to bed....

Not a good sign that I picked 5 ticks off my two dogs this morning. They haven't been anywhere but a well manicured lawn. I've only picked a couple in the previous 3 years here from the yard.

I use a product called Cedarcide. It's a cedar oil based product that is toxic to ticks and other creepy crawlies but not to dogs or humans. If I remember correctly it can harm cats though. I've used it on both my dogs and picked fewer ticks than when using Frontline, which I quit using because of tremors in my lab. With the Cedarcide I've actually found dead ticks on the floor, dead before getting blood out of the dog.

My dog had a chemical reaction to front line that chemically burned his skin and all his hair fell out around the application site...We use Advantix II now with better results. I have had lymes, no fun for sure.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
