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:

I bought a 20% solution of permethrin at tractor supply to drip on thermacell tabs to reuse them. about 10 drops per tab works. I also delute it with water and use a pump sprayer to spray the outside walls of the porches and doors to keep the flies and skeeters down.

Love this stuff.

Guys - You can thank Split Toe, he is the one that turned me on to it. Before I was using dog flea collars. The TSC Gordon's Goat and Sheep in the Gallon container, think it cost less than $10 at the time and got it from Tractor Supply......bought it about 4 years ago....

Huntmaster, I bought a spray bottle and poured the Goat and Sheep into it and a good spray down the clothes that I was going to wear to the woods a couple of days ahead and let it dry) hang them up somewhere and spray them down the next day and let it dry in and then you are ready to go to the woods....

As I understand it permethrin is extracted from chrysanthemum flowers - have seen suggestions to plant them around your buildings/gardens/etc as well to help to deter some of the insects.
