That’s right! I know it because I’m a TICK magnet!
I’ve had 3 tick bites so far this Spring. They FREAK me out!
Wes and Madison haven’t had ONE tick bite and they’ve been doing a lot of BushWacking (because we’ve gotten into GeoCaching). Not one on either of them.
I’m not complaining, don’t get me wrong. I’m SUPER glad neither of them have had one.
I just don’t understand what it is about ME that they love! Just me and Brody. We’ve found 5 ticks on Brody. Two of them had just jumped on for a ride and hadn’t sunk their fangs in yet. Friggin’ ticks!
This winter was so mild, we didn’t have enough freezing days in a row to kill them off, apparently. (According to our Vet.)
We are religious about doing Brody’s Flea and Tick treatment.
I use Tea Tree oil products on my hair once a week. I don’t wipe myself down with Deet every time I go outside. That would get old after about the 5 time each day.
Eat more onions?
Bathe in Tea Tree oil every morning?
Hang a string of garlic around my neck?
I’m seriously thinking this might be my best option!
(Found at Amazon.)
Seriously, anyone have any Tick Avoidance advice? (Other than “Don’t go outside”.) I’m kind of desperate here!
