Permethrin Direct Application?

We've started to have some issues with gnats, flies, etc. Just curious... can you direct apply permethrin to a doe with a pump up sprayer for some relief? I know you can spray pens but was unsure if you can directly apply it to a deer. Thanks for any anticipated help!

It would be easier to get some Y.Tex Python insecticide cattle strips tags. They would slip on existing tags and stop most bugs 24 hours a day. They control horn flies, face flies, lice, Gulf Coast ticks, ear ticks, and aid in control of stable flies, black flies, house flies and horse flies. They last from 3 to four months or more.

Yes, if they let you. Mine can smell me with the sprayer a mile away!

It won't harm them, if you can spray them, and IF is the big question.

I also use garlic powder in their feed.
