TNT kills ticks, fleas, and mites quickly. In most cases, it kills before the bite. It's safe around your pets and children, doesn't harm wildlife, fish, frogs, birds or bees. In some cases it is actually beneficial to wildlife!
Ticks are attracted to your warmth and breath, and those of your pets. Repellents will not scare them away like they scare flies and other pests.
TNT lasts until is is groomed or washed off, making it very economical to use.
TNT should be in your arsenal in the war on ticks!
