A friend of mine Adrian, owns the hunting clothing company 'Kammo'.
This weekend just gone he had a stall at a small Game fair in Scotland. He very quickly sold out of his stock of gaiters. When he asked his customers why the gaiters were so popular in this part of the world they all replied 'Lymes Disease mate'.
My question is, are gaiters really that effective at detering ticks? and what other methods do you use to keep the little sods at bay?
