    Tick Repellent

    Since the Thermacell doesn't have a tick repellent, what do you do for ticks while hunting, if anything?

    Thanks!

    Permethrin. Spray it on your clothes and let it dry.

    Thermacell does have a tick control product.

    Permethrin here as well. I have been using it for many years. As a bonus it actually kills the ticks that come in contact with it. Be aware that in its liquid form it is also deadly to cats an fish. It is supposed to be safe once dried as it binds to the fabric. I always wear gloves when I spray it as it is absorbable through the skin.

    Bug skinz! Its a tick proof underlayer. Used to be called rinoskin I believe. I've been using it for over ten years, never been bit by a tick deer hunting with it. I wont use chemicals on myself so this is the next best thing IMO.

    Spot on. Please not the section of HH's post I bolded. It is essentially a nerve agent so do your best to limit direct exposure to the liquid.
