Default Arkansas Seed Ticks!!!

All, I'm new here and but this forum is awesome! I'm so glad I came across it!

We hunt on private property in NW Arkansas. Last weekend we went out to set up blinds and feeders. Apparently I got into a mess of seed ticks. They were so bad I had to go to the doctor. He told me I am "highly" allergic to them. He advised I not hunt or go to our propertly until after a hard freeze. Bow season is in 2 weeks! I can't wait that long to get out there! Any suggestions on what I can put on to assure I won't get bit so I can enjoy early fall bow season with out being miserable?!?!?

You can use Deet or Permone or both. You can help the situation by cutting your trails to stay out of the high weeds and change cloths as soon as you come out of the woods then bag and wash them.
If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

Welcome to the DHC buddy, glad to have you here. You can use those tight fitting gaiter things or a head net. Other than that I have no idea on how to battle the ticks.

this is what you need. best stuff on the market>>>>>For use on clothing, tents, and other gear, Sawyer Permethrin products not only repel insects, they actually kill ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, mites and more than 55 other kinds of insects on contact. The active ingredient, Permethrin, is a synthetic molecule similar to pyrethrum which is taken from the Chrysanthemum flower. When applied to clothing, Permethrin binds to the fabric eliminating the risk of over-exposure to the skin. Permethrin is odorless when dry, and will not stain or damage clothing, fabrics, plastics, finished surfaces, or any of your outdoor gear. A single application lasts 6 washings. Always follow the Directions for Use on the package label.

hello and welcome. PA is full of ticks also. I use a product by Coulston products INC. It has 0.50% permethrin. Product says odorless. Spray only on clothing not for skin. I hate ticks!

Sawyer Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent Spray is the most effective on ticks, chiggers, mites and mosquitos.
It's a treatment for clothing and gear NOT Skin.
Here's a link to buy it from a Veterans group...(VetFriends)
