  1. There's also some sheep dip products that are used in a cleansing bath located on commercial sheep ranches. The sheep are immersed in a bath containing pyrethroids (synthetic permethrins) or diazinon (a very high LD50 organophosphate insecticide that we used to use quite often in our turf care against grubs). These products kill the lice and other chewing/sucking insects on the sheep and in it's fleece. I've experimented with washing my hunting clothes in this bath but there doesn't seem to be much repellency toward deer ticks. Probably kills them on contact in the liquid state, though.
