Being a family that works and plays in the forest, we have to keep informed on how bad the insect population is each warm season. The past two summers, following warm winters, have allowed the ticks to breed and thrive! There is nothing more horrifying than to raise up your tee shirt and see one of these little blood suckers burrowed into your stomach!! That was my first experience at having a tick and I was extremely disappointed because I had applied another deep woods brand of insect repellent and it obviously didn't work. Before the following weekend in the forest, I went out and read every bottle, tube of cream, organic concoction and every aerosol can on the shelves. Then I picked up "Repel Tick Defense." That weekend, my husband decided to use what was left of the other brand, while I sprayed myself and our daughter head to toe with the Repel Tick Defense. My daughter and I were left alone by ticks, mosquitoes and biting flying critters but my husband didn't fare so well, finding a tick on his chest, stomach and leg! Repel Tick Defense has a slight smell while it's being applied, but doesn't stay with you, making the product unscented. It sprays easily, in a wide stream and even upside down. It's safe for clothing, as well as under clothing. One aerosol can will last a family of four several camping trips, so it is cost effective, but who cares as long as the ticks stay away?! Follow the instructions and wash your hands afterward, it's a wee bit awful if you get some in your mouth! We usually use hand cleansing wipes to wipe the palms of our hands and fingers, so we don't wash all of the spray off. It dries quickly, the can is lightweight and travels well in a backpack. This is the one product we are NEVER without it the summer. I recommend it to anyone from campers and hikers, to lake goers and families who have thicker back yards.
