This is an interesting topic isn't it? I mentioned once before a bug spray that I bought at a local fair and that it worked fairly well at keeping the ticks away. I haven't tested it well enough to say it works this much percent but it seems to work really well, is all natural, and doesn't smell bad. Here is a link to the website wit the bug sprays on it. If you click the picture it doesn't do anything except enlarge it. I don't think they do paypal stuff yet... If you want to order something I guess you go to the order form... http://www.livingwatersoaps.com/bug_sprays.htm
And here is a link to the specials page: http://www.livingwatersoaps.com/specials.htm
Those bug sprays happen to be on special and you can get %10 off... Anyway, Just thought I'd mention it to everyone.
I don't think I brought any ticks into the house. I sure hope not anyway. I was out there for a long time scrubbing with soap and lots of vinegar... my skin started peeling a little this morning on my hands and I believe it's from the vinegar... I scrubbed enough to make me sore all over and then decided to carry the tank, 55 gal
, inside on my shoulder by myself... the next day moving a console tv that I picked up at a yard sale real cheap... still works. Got a kids coloring desk and leapfrog something or other, with the tv all for $30. Tv has remote and still works... Anyway... back to the ticks huh... I still have no idea why I found so many on one tank in the middle of the patio... I may never know... Oh well... It is definitely going to be a bad year for them around here.
