Yes indeed the tick situation has put a serious spanner in my usual outdoor autumn activities. I can recommend the Insect Shield clothing sold by LL Bean and Orvis in Manchester carries something similar, HazMat suits for birders!! It's not inexpensive but very effective, and lasts pretty much forever.
Activyl Tick Plus has pretty much kept our two Standard Poodles tick free this year. Hard to find a tick on a curly black dog!!
The greatest tragedy in mankind's enitire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion.
