We've been out clearing our overgrown pasture. Every time we come in, we are all covered in what we call "seed" ticks. We have so many ticks, it looks like we have been covered in red pepper! A quick shower and careful scrub down with a washrag is the only way I have found to remove them without resorting to strong chemicals. I don't care if the chemicals kill the ticks, but I don't want to find out a few years down the road they are going to kill me, too!
No one has gotten sick - but the teeny tick bites sure itch!
