per gallon of water. We recommend using the highest concentration for the initial treatment and then, depending on how bad the infestation is, you can use 0.2 - 0.4 fl oz for the monthly follow up treatments. According to the product label
, this is the most effective way to treat for ticks using Demand CS: "To control nuisance ticks (e.g. dog ticks) apply to kennels, yards, runs, and other areas where pets may frequent. For best coverage to control ticks, apply using a coarse fan spray to vegetation brush, branches, rock walls, and other areas near habitation where ticks may harbor or frequent. Treat entire area rather than making spot treatments, and retreat as necessary to maintain control. Do not apply to pasture or cropland, and do not allow animals and people access to treated areas until the deposit has dried. Applications can be made on a monthly basis, beginning in the spring and can continue until frost to control both larvae and adult ticks"
