View Full Version : Ticks!
05-07-2004, 07:30 AM
My woods get full of ticks this time of year-actually, it's more the grassy areas around my woods. I'd like to go hunt mushrooms, but between the ticks and the poison ivy, the fun kind of deflates out of the expedition.
The ticks (common american wood tick) mainly seem to get on my shoes or lower pants and start crawling up, getting under the cuff.
Are there any products other than spray that work to keep them off. I don't like the greasy DEET stuff I use, cause it seems to amplify poison ivy problems if (or when) I brush against that. I'd rather have something I can keep off of my skin.
Thanks in advance.

I've had good luck with Permanone.

Anything with Permanone. I use a 3D suite and I only spray it one time for a week hunt. It says that it will last up to 2 weeks but I hate those seed tick so much that I am not going to risk it. I walk through clear cuts and not get a tick.
The above mentioned and a good set of gators.

http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbs-up-ani.gif [FONT=Optima]There is a product called " BUGREPEL ". It's a all natural product and safe, even for infants and pets. I haven't had a tick on me since I started using it. From what I've seen it pretty much repels all bugs. During the summer I sprayed it by one of my porch lights . There were no bugs by that light all night but the other one (only 4 ft. away) was swarmed with them.The maker can also scent them with apple or anise to attract deer and repel bugs It works great but she doesn't advertise that .You can just ask her. check it out. www.bugrepel.com

Durathon is a tick repellant spray you can get through the JHO strore. It really works. Spray it on your cuffs and shoes and the ticks stay away.

Go to drug store and buy a bottle of flower of sulfur and a garbage bag. Put your cloths in garbage bag and add a little of sulfur and shake well. Keep most all critter away and cloths dont sour either
