Protect Yourself Against Ticks This Season

  1. Treat your clothes with repellent

Just like with your shoes, you can spray your clothes with the tick repellent of your choice to offer an additional shield against attack.

If you are using a homemade, or natural repellent that contains essential oils, be sure to test an area of clothing with the mixture before spraying all over. Some concentrations can cause markings on fabric.

When the weather is hotter, wear lighter fabrics and stay hydrated. Apply multiple coatings of tick repellent if out for multiple days, such as a camping trip.
