planning a camping trip this weekend. anyone know of a good tick repellant that is effective? Last year, I had them on me for a couple days. what actually works? Thanks!
DEET is what worx, but i've heard people with any condition that can cause seizures should avoid it.As long as you're not sensitive to it, the most effective insect repellent is straight DEET. I have a little squeeze bottle of it marketed under the brand "Muskol". It lasts forever and only takes a couple of drops.
For a long term solution don't mess with sprays, lotions, etc. Get straight DEET.
For a weekend outing a spray is probably best but make sure it has DEET.
