Knew I shouldn't have posted that - just pulled one off my leg last night (not really attached yet fortunately)

karma I guess. I get them a lot at the cabin. some are attached. I request a blood test every physical. the docs never ask for it, but insurance pays for it. it's one of the few tests I insist on

Normally, we down here in TN don't have to worry about the type of ticks that carry Lyme Disease, this year our CDC has warned that this is changing....my wife, the better half, like her yard work and has numerous bouts of Poison Ivy and Oak every year. This year, have pulled two ticks off her so far....In the Deer woods, I use to wear dog collars around my ankles and the left over amounts use to drill a hole in them and pin them to my hat and the back of my pants...but thanks to split toe, now use Gordon's Goat and Sheep spray. It contains Permethrin. Spray it on your clothes and let it dry and it should (you might have to reapply the application) last you all summer long. I have switched from flea collars to this spray and it has worked out very well. Have sprayed down my wife "yard clothes" the this stuff and she said that she did not have any problems yesterday...now, just to get her to recognize Poison Ivy and Oak in our yard....

I now have four friends that are dealing with the limes as we speak. They all work or play in the outdoors daily. PA has the highest rate of reported limes in the country. I guess I have been pretty fortunate myself.

Good call Bo I use it on my dogs for fleas, ticks and biting flies and it works great. Like you said let it dry and don't apply to your skin- I have seen ticks crawling on my pants lag just curl up about half way!!

Great info on this link about the value of Permethrin as a tick deterrent, how it compares to DEET, risks to humans & other critters, etc:
