I use WD-40 sprayed lightly on my clothes and/exposed skin. The oil will not hurt you as it is not petro. based (I think). They do not like it. In berry season I seldom get chiggers or ticks. Cannot think of one this year. Try it--but of course not during early season deer hunting--they don't like the smell of it either-lol, wc

carefull with the deet, strong concentrations on your hands, will burn face and tender skin, also will melt a lot of plastics like what a remote control is made of!

I've been using the REPEL 40% deet on my boots, jeans and Tee shirts but still get some ticks and chiggers.

I give the ticks that are anchored on me a direct shot of the 40% in hopes of killing them, I believe it makes them easier to remove.

Chiggers are ticks with no reason for living except to drive all warm blooded mammals crazy.

I'm going to give the B1 a try and hope it works.

Well I've been on the B1 for about 5 weeks and only a few chigger bites and zero tick bites. I let a tick crawl on my arm for 15-20 minutes and got tired watching it crawl all over so I cut it in quarters, my favorite thing to do to ticks.

Thanks to Jack Hester for that tip :thumbs:

This works for some, but here goes, take vitamin B daily, they don't like something about it in your system, smell the bottle and I could understand why!!
