Every time I have stepped foot into the woods I end up with a tick on me. Anybody else having this problem? Does anyone know of any home remedy to keep them off? Luckily I have seen them or felt them on me before they get burrowed in. Never had one on me before this year.

Me too, lots of ticks always come out with one or more. Always wear long socks, long pants, long sleeve shirts. Spray near all openings with deet insect repellent spray. When you get home throw all clothes in a hot wash and take a hot shower. Follow these routines all the time most ticks will never get on you or be washed off before they settle on a spot to bite.

Like newbietoo said, we had a very mild winter here on the east coast, and that hasnt helped the cause. Disease is spreading too. Nasty little buggers!

Deet and garlic.
Heavy garlic diet before going into the woods never hurts. Helps keep away other pest too.

Use to do that before heading into the swamps. Could always tell who didnt take that precaution by who was swinging their arms around the most.

If you get one stuck on ya' take a q-tip or cotton ball and put liquid hand soap on it and rub the tick with it for 20 or 30 seconds and it will let go no need to pull it out. it lets go and sticks to the soap really does work :cool:

Ticks have been horrible in east Texas. Haven't found any by me but I'm smack dab in the middle of suburbia.

I'm also seeing a lot of them here in Va. They seem to be really attracted to me.

I thought they might have been deer ticks but I wasn't positive. I wore a long sleeved shirt the last two times I have gone into water and didn't get any on me. Seems to be working.
