    Defaultticks driving me crazy!!!

    I have two labradors and a cattle dog. I live in Florida and for the first time ever I have been invaded by ticks. Does anyone have any great solutions for getting rid of these little critters?
    My dogs are on Frontline and I have just added the Preventix collars. I have sprayed both front and back yards and have sprayed every room in the house. I still am finding ticks. I would appreciate any suggestions. :'(

    Frontline OR Frontline Plus?

    We use Frontline Plus in a heavily tick-infested area and have never had a single tick on Puff in over thousands of morning walks.

    BobPR-- Why would that make a difference? The Fipronil, which kills ticks & adult fleas, is the same in both the Frontline and Frontline Plus. Frontline Plus has Methoprene, which doesn't work on ticks at all, but kills fleas at an immature developmental stage (larvae/eggs).
