While the best way to keep ticks off your livestock is to brush TNT against the lay of the hair on each animal, this is not always feasible. Another way to reduce the presence of ticks is to use our Total Farm system and spread the powder around their sleeping areas and shelters. Our system is designed to control the direction the powder is applied and limit the amount needed. The spreader minimizes the effect it would have on bees and other wildlife through targeted application. TNT can be applied all around pastures and especially under fence lines where ticks could enter the pasture after being deposited by wild animals in the area. Because TNT is a powder, it can be irritating to eyes so please apply when it is not windy and the animals are not present.
