The deer tick with Lyme's takes 5-6 hours to infect.  This new one is on the wood ticks and takes only a matter of minutes.  The bad part of it is, it's a virus and can't be treated.  That's the part that makes it so bad.

I haven't tried it so I can not attest to it's validity, but I know vanilla deters gnats and I have heard that peppermint deters ticks.  Youtube video shows putting a drop of peppermint oil on an embedded tick caused it to back out.  Haven't tried it.

I just wanted to say thank you all for the wonderful advice. They made it back today and used lots of what was on this list. The gold bond tip was a godsend - some of the others didn't feel the need to bring it and are suffering this weekend! He's exhausted but already talking about the next trip. :happy:
