Hey all,
Once again the black flies are doing a number on our poor dogs ears. We've tried different fly sprays made for horses and it seems to work for a day. Has anyone had luck with a homemade treatment using vaseline or bag balm? Wondering if I mix citronella oil in with it if it would be more effective…Thanks!

I use a drop or two of tea tree oil on the tips of the ears, works for a few to several days at a time.

Among human insect repellants the ones with citronella don't seem to last more than an hour in really thick blackflies, even the ones with deet have to be put on more than once a day if the flies are bad.
