Garlic Oil for Ticks

Has anyone ever used garlic oil for ticks? I know it works pretty well for mosquitos. My dog is getting ticks every time she goes out in our backyard. This year is the worst I've seen here.

Thanks!

Castor oil is a better bet, if you don't want to go find it we have it our Essential-1 at 4% with Garlic and Capsiacin (for browsers)
1 gallon treats 1 acre

Used it once. Did not work on ticks. For some things, use a scalpel. For others, a flame thrower. Ticks, you need a flame thrower. Use Sevin or Bifenthrin. Don't mess around with garlic oil, cedar oil, etc.

Ticks on dog

If you want something to use on the dog asap- Avon makes a great insect and tick repllent that is safe for use on kids that many vets have suggested use on dogs. I have a husky and he loves to hike so we spray him down and haven't had any problems with ticks, including all last summer.
