Actually, it doesn't. DEET does damage plastics and most synthetic fabrics, but nylon isn't one of them.

We are talking about pure DEET here, not an insect repellent preparation that contains DEET along with solvents or other agents.


OK ... what would you recommend?

100% DEET or picardin - proven that they work and work well. But of course that's based on science - something you tend to discredit. But you're the one afraid of falling on bolts, thinks that HIV/AIDS is a hoax, believes in the bullshit of chemtrails, and who knows what else, so whatever we suggest you'll find some reason to fear, denigrate, or dismiss. Perhaps the ticks have eaten into your brain.

I think Joshua's tick was very similar, although he disagrees.

Yeah, whatever. Seriously, I click on the links to the new posts thinking you might have something useful or interesting to say and so often find that not to be the case.

Found another tick today, it was on Joshua climbing up on him. We think it is a dog tick.

Yesterday while playing in the back yard with my two children we found a grand total of 10 ticks on us and the swing set throughout the afternoon. Nasty!! They were all wood ticks.. I even had Deet on because I was working with some brush for a few minutes and they were still on me...

Wow!, We use hasmat suits, no Deet, but we take them off when we get to the top of Millbrook. Joshua was sitting and reading his i-phone for about an hour when he felt one crawl off his sweater onto his neck.

We still have the ticks over here. Here is a picture of tick number 3 & 4. [Tick #1 was flicked off, Tick #2 was burned to death with a match. [Now we invite them into our house, feed them, they live with us!]]

# 3


# 4
