Ticks away!

Recommended Posts

Hello dear friends,

 

I'm looking into ways to keep ticks away so I wouldn't need to scratch my flash off down to bone.

 

Anyone applies herbs on their clothes or use a certain washing liquid which works well? :)

 

Thank you for sharing your masterity!

 

bye

There are chemical wash-in products you can buy from hiking shops that supposedly stay in the fabric for weeks, even after washing again, that work, so they say. Can't remember the name of the chemical, but it's synthetic chrsanthymum extract, I think. Same chemical is in Spot-On, cattle and sheep treatment, much much cheaper. Also same chemical is in fly spray. You could try an aerosol can of fly spray and just spray your trouser cuffs, or wherever the ticks get in, and see if it works?
