Question for those that use back rubs, what do you typically treat them with for fly control?

We typically mix permectrin/permethrin and diesel for ours.

Late in the season, like now, use Lintox Prolate. Mix with kerosene instead of diesel. Diesel tends to burn their backs.

I'm going to assume this is why I'm seeing super flaky skin along their back and the backside of their head?
