We were out in the woods yesterday.  This stuff works.

Thanks Brad.
The link had an extra https://

If you remove it and use only the http:// url then it will get you to the site.

Looks like they sell it at Walmart, Target, Dicks, Cabelas and Academy Sports. Or online at Amazon and other places if you don't want to venture out. Strong enough to last 6 weeks and several washings (clothes). Some of you might need to spray that on your Toyotas if the only time you wash it is if it rains :)

Hey, who do you think told the old Jeep guy about the stuff in the first place?  That's right, a Toyota guy!

No self respecting tick would bite a Yoter owner.  Tongue

Well, maybe that explains why I've not had a tick bite in years, even without re-spraying my clothes with permethrin... Thumbs Up

Some of us just aren't that lucky.  Ticks and chiggers are the main reason why camping isn't as fun around here.  Well that and the Blair Witch woods are kinda spooky.  Definitely not Colorado camping and I don't mean at the KOA either :)
