I mix in garlic powder with their feed, and I will also randomly spray permetherin in the pens, once every couple weeks.

how much garlic powder do you put in per ton? *I spray Artic which is Strong Permetherin every 2 weeks that really knocks the population down! *Thanks JIM

I eyeball it, and use about 1-2 cups, per 50# bag of feed. I will also use some type of vegetable or peanut oil, to get the garlic powder to stick to the feed, because if not, a lot of times the deer will pick around it, and you'll only have garlic powder left in the feeder.

Pretty cheap. I just get the big jugs of garlic powder from Sam's club or Costco.

Somebody had suggested to use dog's frontline or other flea/tick spot on and I did that on the ones I can touch. Worked great. Ivermectin Pour On, 5 mg, works too and de-worms at the same time. There is an off-brand name bottle available at Jeffers (pet, livestock, equine catalogs), cost less than half of Ivermectin brand.

I am at war with the flies. My biggest problem is I am located next to a cow/calf operation, so there is an endless food supply and opportunity for hatch of the flies. The deer get the short end of the stick. I have been tending to the problem vigorously for a few weeks now, with mediocre improvement. Permethrin, fly traps, garlic and Aureomycin are all in play. The cows are not going to leave, so I feel like rather than trying to keep the flies away from the deer, I just need to kill the flies. Sooner or later, I will win. I am thinking about fogging. I know very little about the practice, so I am looking for advice. By all means, please chime in if another process will yield similar results. Thank you in advance for your help.

How much oil do you normally add to your feed to make the garlic powder stick?
