    Any one have tick problems where you live?

    I don't use anything, I do keep my pants leg tucked into my rubber boots. Wash my clothing to kill any ticks I may drag home and check my torso and legs for any critters. If any are found I'll take duct tape and rup the sticky side up and down my legs catching anyt critters trying to climb up.

      I spray with deet and treat my clothing with pyrethrin spray that kills ticks for weeks.

        Deer ticks are very bad in my area and they are sometimes difficult to detect due to their small size. I had my first bout with Lyme disease back in 1986, no bull's eye rash. The doctors didn't believe that it was in my area, so I was left untreated for over a year and had a nightmare of health problems. I finally went to another state to get diagnosis and treatment and this helped but I have lasting effects. Lessons learned: Use deet, dress properly, shower and inspect your body after outdoors, if you are bitten and show any signs of redness or irritation from that bite see the docter for antibiotics. The diagnosis and especially treament has improved greatly in the past 25 years. I have been to my doctor at least 10 times for deer tick bites over the years. Even with great precautions they still manage to attach. Don't take deer ticks lightly.

            I had never seen a deer tick up here in crawford county until i killed my archery buck this year. I caught a normal tick last summer, not sure how but the thing attached right behind my ear.
