    This dweeb shit, unfortunately, works. Utilize clothing that covers you while still allowing you to dry out and cool off quickly, minimize gaps in coverage of skin, permethrin treat everything that isn't your underwear or something you might slobber on in your sleep, and regularly DEET whatever's left uncovered.

    you should even treat your car seats.

        I hiked in a combat shirt and quick-dry cargo pants last weekend, heat and sweat wicking was fine. It breathed like a t-shirt, and I can't imagine a different outfit making much of a difference on a really hot day.

            If an outdoor clothing manufacturer would make these in non-mil colors without the patch panels and call it something non-cringe I'd be all for it. Apart from the patch panels and the colors they get made in, the features are exactly what I need to go for speed in a hot, thorny Ozark mountain wood without worrying about ticks.

      I recoat my pants with permethrin every time I go out. I dont even care if they havent been washed and the last time i hiked was recently, they are getting recoated. Ever since I started doing this I really havent had any ticks on me, thus stuff is like a magical ward to them

      this is actually the only time I've seen a tick on my body, other than crawling up my legs.
      Damn suckers LOVE balls.
      I have to shave my balls in the summer just to spot and remove them easier!

        Permethrin can't pass through human skin. As long as you don't ingest it internationally it doesn't hurt you. Also deet doesn't repel ticks for anyone wondering.

          do those work? My gf wants me to wear two dog collars on each leg to repell the ticks.

            I've never heard of those, but probably not. I spray my shoes and my bed (because dogs) every two weeks over summer and I haven't had a tick on me in years.

        Permethrin and pyrethrins don't effect people like they do bugs. Surprise - bugs and people don't have identical biologies. These chemicals are derived from chrysanthemums, which are eaten by humans as food in various parts of the world. Lrn2Science dumbass. All insecticides are not the same. Thinking they are is like thinking olive oil is as carcinogenic as motor oil because "hurr durr they're both oil".

      Used to be a zogbot, one time the CO decided we needed to do an surprise overnight FTX. He had us set up in an umanaged field, turns out shit was full of chiggers. Almost everyone in the company got their feet covered in stylostomes. Fricking nightmarish.

    SInce this is the bloodsucker thread: Do any light "summer" gloves exist I could wear to cover skin so there's at least SOME layer between the mosquitos and me? Coating myself in chemicals only goes so far.

    I know a lot of outdoors-y people who've just made peace with the fact that they'll get bitten by these guys. I think it's the right move.

    What did god mean by this? Ticks have been infecting people with lyme since the late stone age, oetzi the frozen mummy even had it in his body, and he had tattos on joints to probably try and cure all his pain he had from it.

    It's 2024, can't we create some pathogen to kill these frickers, along with mosquitoes, horseflies etc? I don't give a frick about the eco system damage it would cause, I want a comfy outdoors.

      The US government created Lyme Disease as a bioweapon. This is common knowledge and not even a conspiracy theory anymore.

    What's worse, Lymes or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever?
    Both are bacteria spread by ticks, Borrelia in lymes and Rickettsia rickettsii in rmsf.
