I work outdoors and love camping and I also would love to be able to better repel ticks. Just the other day I found one on my leg. It seems to be a time of year when they are really active here again.

im not sure how to repel them but u can not attract them by some diet changes like cutting out swets and stuff
i have had 1..in the past 20 years maybe 2 and i spend alotta time in deep wilderness
ive sat under bushes and ppl on either side of me h=got 15 in mu=inutes and i got none
maybe teatree repels em too im not sure but i think its more ahout making yiur blood less aof a treat
garlic and tobacko can be fead to dogs (in safe doses) to kill off ticks and i think repell em so maybe just eating alota garlic is the key
I don't know if I was wrong in doing so...but I've used citronella oil directly in my hair before working out in the field. I also agree with eating garlic and staying away from perfume products. seems to keep most bugs away. I've never had a tick, and hardly get bitten by spiders, mosquitoes or other insects.
Also....my personal belief is that if I don't kill insects like spiders and such...somehow this is known...and they will respect you like you respect them.
