My Dad tells me the Deer Flies have been pretty ferocious in Northern Wisconsin this summer. They (deer flies) have been especially keen on his black dog, seeming to show a bit of mercy on the yellow dog. So bad, they have been unable to enjoy their daily walks out around the property. He called me, to ask if I knew of anything that could help with the problem.
I logged in here at RTF, did a search and read Angie's and Vicky's post, which I will forward on. The mentioned products sound like the ticket for an indoor environment. I'm sure Dad will wanna give these products a try.
However, the real problem is in the outdoor area around the property ...
Anyone know of any remedies to curtial the Deer Fly activity in a larger outdoor area ? Perhaps burning something (smoke) ? or maybe just a bunch of these Misting Timed release units located around the yard.
Thanks, and yes I still look in to see who's doin' what from time to time.
Unfortunately, still "no room at the Inn" for a real dog.
