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.

Went to Houston last weekend, stayed in hotels, still took the Gold Bond.
