Re: Tick Prevention 2016 - What are you using this year?

I am also about to try out new methods to keep the ticks away (from animals and humans).

Have read about tick repellent clothing and saw tick repellent shirts for dogs as well. Not sure how good they work though.

Another idea is to wear clothes treated with Permethrin.

Friend recommended rose geranium.. I found geranium tick repellent sprays online and also a DIY here:

In a small container or bowl, combine 4 tablespoons vegetable oil or almond oil, 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel, and 30 to 40 drops geranium essential oil. Mix it well and use an eye dropper to apply the mixture to your skin and rub it in. You can also apply two to three drops to your dog’s collar to repel ticks.
