How To Keep Wood Ticks Off Horses? Coumaphos spray or powder; pyrethrins; synthetic pyrethroids applied as a wipe, spray, or spot-on; and zeta-cypermethrin dusting powders are the most commonly used repellents. Brand names include Co-Ral, Deep Woods Off, and Frontline spray, which should be applied to the horse’s main, tail head, chest, and underbelly.
