    What do you use to nail ticks on sheep?

    I use Bayticol on my deer. I understand it works on sheep as well.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    any of the pour-on lice stuff should kill ticks as well - shouldnt it ? Ask ya local vets
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    Never seen ticks on my flock, but anything is possible, as I recall finding them on my horses and myself.
    As you don't mention the number of sheep to treat, which is a very relevant cost effective matter, I would, as has been advised above, telephone your local vet and stress that it is ticks as opposed to lice, although one may well do both. Drenches etc are bloody expensive and often only available in quantities which you will never completely use before their expiry date. If your vet club is any worth while, they will buy in bulk and repack in a reasonable size for smaller animal numbers.

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Yea I am grazing a few of my own eaters on the inlaws life style block and they are covered in the things, thinking because of the place has loads of rank grass and maybe because it's only ever had horses on it.
    Never had a tick issue at work.
