Used twice now, once a week as instructed. Early to say, but no skin reaction and less rubbing. I hesitated with the cost, but believe it is worth using for the season to properly assess how good it is.

Z Itch product

VioVet Visitor

Z Itch product: In addition to midges, does this control ticks/lice?

  • VioVet Staff

The active ingredient in Z-itch is Permethrin which has been shown to be effective against ticks and lice. However Z-itch is not licensed for this use and it has not been proven/disproven to protect against lice/ticks, it is only proven effective against midges.
