Thread: Ticks & Clothing

    Ticks & Clothing

    Alright folks,

    Just had the pleasure today of removing the first ever ticks I have had, and I think I will give it a miss about telling the wife about the one I just removed from my bollock. I think I am now banished to getting changed for shooting in the garage and having to leave all my gear in there for decontamination afterwards from now on!

    Anyone else been banished? or other tips for making sure your clothing doesn't have ticks on them?
    By three methods we may learn wisdom:
    First, by reflection, which is noblest;
    Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
    and third by experience, which is the bitterest

    Make sure you tuck everything in basically. I've noticed that I get less ticks when I wear a long sleeved shirt tucked in, trousers tucked into socks and wellies.

    I've found ticks on my legs even when I've worn boots with trousers velcroed tightly around the boots. The little gits still manage to get up the trouser legs.

    Wellies definitely seem to put them off though. They probably can't hang on very well.

    Just got myself some of this clothing. I am normally a tick magnet, will be interested to see how it works.

    You won't be disappointed never picked up one tick last season either stalking or beating. That was a first for seven years so they got my vote!!

    Where does one get this clothing, I have always picked up the odd tick but this year have seemed to have more than my fair share with one going really messy, leading to a couple of months on antibiotics

    I did buy the trousers and the shirt, with hindsight I think I just would have got the shirt and the socks as that covers both ends of the trousers
