I've heard the ticks are bad here in Mo as well,,, but I have only picked one off me this year so far- and that was while I was in the garden. I went out to check a trail cam yesterday that was in an area over grown and didn't have one on me the whole time. I was surprised. My wife's uncle told me that a neat trick he heard about really works.. if you have one on you that is attached, take a cotton swab or q-tip and put some Dawn dish soap on it then dab the area the tick is in. In just a few moments the tick will release and attach to the cotton of the swab or q-tip. He thought it was a hoax but he said it worked great.
