If they can make a product that you just squeeze on a dog's back and it kills all ticks that bite the dog, why can't they do the same for humans? Ticks are bad this year but I'm willing to chance them for finding morels. But only for morels. I won't be going into the deep woods again until the Fall without being slathered in DEET.
Damn I hate those little bastards. But these things are well worth it.
