The Tick-Borne Disease
Alliance (tbdalliance.org) says adventurers should include
the following items in their travel bags:
Brands such as Insect Shield, ExOfficio’s BugsAway, and ElimiTick are effective
for up to 70 washes.
Wear pretreated, light-colored long pants, a long-sleeve
shirt, and a hat.
Try Buzz Away Extreme, Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect
Repellent, or Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition.
To prevent ticks from being transported home, place dirty clothes in a resealable bag
until they can be put
in a dryer, which kills ticks.
LOTS OF SOAP
Showering immediately after spending time outside helps
remove unattached ticks.
