I hate ticks! Buddy of mine had one stuck in his leg after hunting Monday. I'm always paranoid after having my kids in the woods and check them over. I treated everything with Sawyers but I still had one attached on my middle toe last turk season...

This year has been pretty good so far (Knock on wood) haven’t had one all year so far... Two years ago they were bad... This last winter has seemed to knock them down some....

No joke, I pulled one off my dick hole this morning! Felt something and jerked that little bastard out to see a tick on it. I’m still freaking out. Not sure I’ll ever wear shorts again.

Wait, so we can protect our dogs but not ourselves?

Had to swing by the vets office to refill my tanner boys meds and seen this.

I soaked a bunch of my clothes in Permethrin to wear hunting mushrooms this time of year. I have been in neck high weeks, briars, etc., numerous times in the last 6 weeks and have not seen one tick since wearing permethrin treated clothes. Mosquitos barely come near me and when they do, it's buzzing in my ears. I'm going to do all of my mild weather hunting gear and squirrel hunting stuff before season starts. I also spray it on the house around the doors and windows and up in the gables and stuff. keeps wasps and flies away quite well. not only does it repel them to some extent, but Permethrin kills whatever bugs touch it. shit really works. piles of dead fake stinkbugs and wasps on my porch now, piles up those damn Japanese ladybeetle friggin things, too. bought a quart of the concentrate on Amazon. it's enough to make 30 gallons or something. two tablespoons in a gallon of water yields the .05% solution to treat clothes. Permethrin is absolutely the real deal.
