Mosquito Repellent

Does anyone use any type of mosquito repellent on their deer? I went out this morning to bottle feed my doe and she had about 10 mosquitos on each leg that I had to wipe off.

If my pens get really bad, I'll go around and spray everything with permetherin or Tempo. You can get it at TSC or other farm stores.

pest control

Essentria IC3. Its all natural used in food processing. totally safe. Mix 3oz to one gallon. Can mix with water or mineral oil. Oil makes it last a lot longer. I have it in a mist system with a motion detector when they come to feed they get sprayed. My tame deer I wipe down with a cotton glove dipped in it. It stops all insects. Also used to spray houses and out building totally repels bees ants and wasps.

I did not quite understand. Do you want to avoid mosquitos from bothering dear? If so I'd recommend mosquito magnet reviews which will help you determine the unique methods to do so.
