    Default Garlic, fleas and ticks

    Does anyone use garlic to repel fleas and ticks? I know that there is some controversy about feeding garlic to dogs, as they share a compound with onions, but there are a lot of kibbles and treats with garlic in them.

    I am wondering if these Bug Off tablets would be a viable option to using Frontline. The ticks are so bad here, that the dogs come in with several each time they go outside.

    During World War II studies were done on soldiers with garlic and yeast. They do not work.
