Preventing Ticks!

What do you use to prevent ticks from climbing aboard yourself, your kids, and/or your pets when walking/hiking outdoors? I detest ticks, and it's tick season in my area. Thanks for the advice.

  • Long pants tucked into socks makes a big difference. Be sure to do a thorough check when you get home, too. There are tick repellants out there, it's worth giving them a go. Stay on the main trails, don't go through tall grass, where ticks tend to be.
