    Here in Louisiana we have mosquitoes year around. Someone gave me a can of flea and mosquito repellant yesterday that contains 30% deet. I am afraid to use this on my dogs but a repellant for fleas that works would be great. I use frontline, but it does not repel fleas. I also like the idea of repelling mosquitoes, flies, ticks, etc. Has anyone ever used a product containing deet? Or does anyone know of a safe repellant that works? I used to buy something years ago called "Expar" that worked wonderfully. I think now it is only sold for horses as a repellant for flies, or possibly has been taken off the market. I don't use poisons in my yard because I have box turtles wondering around and also a garden that I'd rather not have poisons around. I would appreciate any thoughts or opinions! Thanks!

    Look at the Fran27's thread about Heartguard, we were just discussing this. Also have you heard of Diatomaceous Earth? This is something I have been talking to Mordy about also, and trying to find the best information out there.
