    Default Bug spray for the yard

    Hey guys, I need to treat my yard to help with bugs. Every time I go outside to see my baby, I get eaten alive. And I know if I am, she is.

    What can I use to treat my yard that won't harm her?

    I would not spray anything in the yard... it is baby season.

    You can treat the individual squirrel with Revolution which will help with fleas, ticks, etc. However, if she has any bot warbles, do not use Revolution. If the bot larva dies under her skin it will rot and fester and presents a significant infection risk.

    How do I know how much to dose her with?

    Unfortunately, no babies for us. She's the only squirrel for some distance

    One drop between her shoulder blades on her skin if you can. Otherwise you can put one drop on a nuts (pecans with their ridges work well) and let her eat it.
