                                   Top ways to repel ticks with natural tick repellents
                                                            By Elena Semick




Tick bites can cause serious illnesses like Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Anaplasmosis, Tick
Associated Rash Illness, Babesiosis, and Monocytic Ehrlichoisis. Ticks can sometimes cause a deadly
disease, Lyme Disease, leading to arthritis and severe nervous disorder. If you notice symptoms of any
of these diseases, seek immediate medical attention. Therefore, always use tick repellent before
venturing into forests or other tick-infested regions.

A very simple tick repellent is using an insect repellent with DEET. Make liberal use of DEET insect
repellent all over your hands and legs even if they are fully covered with clothing. Spray a little on your
hair. Be very particular about protecting your back, your neck and at backside of your neck with such
tick repellent as ticks normally lodge more at such places.

If you want to keep off tick population, tick repellent can definitely prove useful. At the same time,
prevent growth of tick population by keeping your lawns mowed and perfectly trimmed without any
presence of tall grasses, brushes, or weeds. Ticks do not normally dwell on short grasses.

Very common carriers of ticks into your home are your pet dogs and cats. It is therefore essential to
check your pets for any ticks every time they return indoors after venturing in the open. Nevertheless,
use any tick repellent on your pets like a tick collar, treating your pets with chemicals like Sevin, Ficam,
and Dursban, Feeding garlic pills daily, or giving your pet a thorough bath using preventive tick
repellents.

Another effective tick repellent is Permethrin, an insecticide derived from flowers. Apply this repellent
all over your body but avoid using on face. Also, do not ingest it. A similar tick repellent is citronella oil.
This herbal mix also keeps away ticks effectively.

If you are wary of using any tick repellent on your skin, try alternative techniques of combating ticks.
Always dress in full clothing like wearing a complete ensemble of socks, enclosed shoes, hat, full shirt,
long trousers, and gloves before going into woods or doing any gardening. You need to spray tick
repellent on clothes and other accessories before wearing them. Choose to wear light-colored clothes
as you can then clearly see any tick crawling on your clothing.

Another herbal tick repellent is rose geranium oil. This oil repellent is commonly used on humans and

pet dogs. Palmerosa oil is also an effective repellent for ticks. However, many prefer not using these
repellents on pet cats. You can apply few drops of these repellents on your dog’s collar to keep
away ticks. Other natural solutions to tick problems are applying moisturizing lotions like aloe or cocoa
butter on your skin.

You can try making a tick repellent. Mix two tablespoons of almond oil, nut oil, or vegetable oil with ten
to twenty-five drops of Rose Geranium oil or Palmerosa oil in a glass jar. Shake well to allow perfect
blending. Dab few drops on your skin or clothing to keep away ticks. Avoid applying mixture on or
anywhere close to eyes. This mixture has a shelf life of six months.

                                                         Controlling Tick Exposure
                                                                By Kelly Marshall



Ticks are worldwide, there are over 800 species, and they feed on the blood of an animal to survive.
Ticks attach themselves to animals or people, which is called a host and they begin to lay eggs. The
eggs are in an inactive stage at first, then they grow into larvae and they must feed on blood to
continue to the next stage. After that, they become a nymph and then an adult. It takes from one to two
years to become an adult. Many ticks carry diseases in their saliva, most known are Rocky Mountain
spotted fever and Lyme disease.

 It’s hard to see ticks because they do not fly or jump on their host. They climb to the tops of blades of
grass and extend their legs and wait for something to brush against them and then they attach and
look for a place to bury their heads. Not all ticks are infected but you can’t tell that by just looking at
them, its best to remove any tick that is on you. A tick that is crawling on you cannot transmit disease.

 Most ticks hide in areas such as the woods or in brush piles, many animals find these places
comforting but don’t know the real danger. Make sure to keep your lawn neat, ticks love to hide in
brush piles and areas that are wooded and if they are close to your home, you are giving them an
invitation to come in. If you have to put up a fence to keep out wild animals, do so; this will eliminate
any animals wondering into your yard or onto your property. Remember children do not know the
dangers of ticks; therefore, you must keep play areas away from wooded areas.

 If you have to spray for ticks, find a company that can do it professionally. If you are careless, you
could contaminate drinking water and poison your pets. If you do find a tick on your or a family
member, you need to carefully remove the tick. Do not yank on the tick’s body because it will only bury
its head deeper and cause its mouthpiece to break off and stay inside your skin. Use tweezers and
gently pull on the tick so its whole body stays intact. Lighting a match to it might cause the tick to
release more saliva into your system and if it’s infected, you will need to consult a physician.

 In order to limit your exposure to ticks, if you plan to hike in wooded areas, you should wear light
colored clothing so you can see whether there are any ticks are crawling on you. Tuck your pants into
your socks so ticks can't crawl up your socks onto your skin. You can use DEET to repel them but it
doesn’t last very long, also DEET can make children sick. You should inspect every part of your body
once you return to a neutral place. Check children thoroughly, armpits, ears, hair and private areas.
Follow these steps and you will not have any problems.
