  • Summer = ticks an such

    With the onset of warm weather the old natural bug repellent still works the best for me. Plus there are no side effects either.
    Take 2 tablespoons of Organic raw unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar 2 X a day in 10-12oz of cold water for 4-5 days and 1 tablespoon straight before going into heavily infested areas and you should come out tick an bug free. Shake well before spooning/poring into the water. If going to the bush for more than 3-4 days treat your take a long water. I keep vinegar in a pint bottle if out for extended periods. I take this all the time an bugs get on everyone else but I'm bug free. Also this mix is good for many things, research it.

    In heavy mosquito infested areas a dryer sheet whipped on all none covered skin, works for most folks as well. Only draw back is you smell dryer fresh for about 30 yds down wind, so take heed. Snuggle an Downy works best. Snakes do not like sulfur powder at all, which is why I also keep a small container of it with me. I'm not worried about snakes but have almost been killed by those who do. LOL

    Got my first tick of the season last weekend here in eastern Virginia, of all things just cutting the grass and trimming some branches off the oaks before they came into leaf this spring. Fucker got me right on the cheek too, and I'm not talking about the one next to my pleasant smile either. I'm really hoping it's not a bad year for them, I hate running pesticides in the yard but will definitely go that route versus having to worry about the little ones getting tick bites and potentially getting sick just from playing on the tree swing.

      You can spray the area with a Vinegar mix, many recipes on the net. The bad thing is after a rain it has to be done again, but to me that's better than anything with Deet or other stuff on the kids. I've used Vinegar in the last rinse in the washing machine it works but, not as well as ingesting it. Kids will not like drinking it at all, but the colder the water the easier it goes down. Spraying the clothes just before they go out works, but the clothes will fade over time.

        I use and like Listerine, the gold colored mouth wash.
        Put it in a spray bottle and spray anywhere you don't want to have chiggers and ticks.
        Works great, try it.

          I consume at least 3 TBSP of ACV w/mother everyday for my diet. Thats good to know, when I go out in the woods Ill take some more with me. Thanks for the heads up!

                  If you add raw honey to your vinegar water mix it tastes pretty good, drink it every day! Didn't know it worked as a bug repellent though!

                    I got bit by a tick a while back, now if I eat medium rare or less cooked beef I break out in hives.. Even cooked beef seems to upset my stomach if I eat a lot of it. It sucks!

                      I would die... that sucks. Is this a complication of lymes disease?

                        I am not sure because I don't have any of the other issues.. Energy is still good, no chronic pain, and I can eat elk, venison, or pork ( all considered Red meats) and I have no issues.. I should probably get that checked out.

                            I recently bought some clothing with permethrin impregnated... I picked off 2 last week and we'll see if it makes a difference.

                            I've also bought some picaridin 20% spray that's supposed to be good stuff and LEO spray for the kids and wife in the backyard.

                            Ticks here in PA are no joke and I know a few friends with Lyme's. I am trying to take extra steps to stay safe w/o giving my self cancer in the process.

                              I spray on OFF with 25% deet. Spray my clothes and around my boots and ankles. Hardly ever have a tick.

                                I would avoid this, i've seen some photos from preventetive medicine where soldiers had done this going into Iraq and Afghanistan and they had some horrible rashes and skin ailments cause their sweat interacted and the stuff leached through their boots. in fact here is an article.... https://www.stripes.com/news/flea-co...7#.WW-QLjOB1sY

                                  You should.

                                  There is a different disease that causes that. The name escapes me right now.
