Hey, I've always had great luck putting seven dust in a sock and slapping it around my ankles/calves and around the waist area. they do not like that stuff. don't breath it in though when applying. good luck
Garlic, sulphur powder, deet, duct tape your pants legs to your boots and like plinker 66 said undress outside or in garage. One more thing to do after you undress is immediately run your naked a#! straight to the Mrs. and insist on a full body cavity check. Have her start by inspecting the exit after you have bent over at the waist and grabbed your ankles. A true life partner will go above and beyond to get those lymes disease, rocky mountain tick fever spreaders removed.
