Default ticks

Apparently it's that time of year around here. In three days i've found two ticks on me. My job requires me to bushwhack 10 - 12 hours a day so i suppose a tick or two should be expected. I cover up and tuck my shirt and pantlegs in as recommended, inspect daily, and am about to pick up a tick specific repellant. Anyone out there have any tips or tricks to keeping them away to begin with? How about removing them a little easier when they do attach themselves?

Deet does a pretty good job. As far as removing the ticks, tweezers are best. You could always pour some deisel over them, it sterilizes and kills.

I usually see them before they find skin. I can't even begin to count the ones i've picked off my jeans and killed. Its just bothering me that some are getting through. I guess i should consider myself lucky that i caught them early on before they became a problem.

I would suggest using deisel applied with a cotton swab/ball after they bite. Like 7.5 said, tape your pants inside. Use tape, tuck, tall boots pulled tight, etc. Be sure to coat yourself/clothes in deet or a tick spray with deet or permethrin in it, the bugs tend to catch wiff of it and fall away. Permethrin is used in cat/dog flea and tick shampoo. It will kill them, however, if your work clothes are treated, they will leave you alone. You could get a tick collar to hang on your belt, which also deters them. "Preven-tick" is the collar you buy from the vet for pretty cheap and lasts for 3 months.

Brick, you seem to have an expertise in pest deterrence.
