vickim Posted July 10, 2007 Report Share Posted July 10, 2007 I walk Whisper off-leash in the woods; she has a lot of fun exploring. One thing that she does not like are the deer flies. I've used Bounce dryer sheets on myself to keep mosquitos away (supposed to help kill the wet-dog smell, too, though I have yet to do the research to see if the sheet are pet-safe), but do nothing for deer flies. The flies will light on her ears, burrow in and attach themselves. If she stops long enough, I pick them off her, but she doesn't always stand still long enough for me to do this until just before we go inside. Is there any pet-safe insect repellant that will actually work on this pest, and can deer flies carry diseases? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
