How To Keep Ticks Off

I love the outdoors, but one thing that always (no pun intended) bugs me are bugs – and specifically ticks. I always struggled with keeping them off of me and my buddies until I figured out this little secret.

Other than using a spray with a high deet content like 100 on your clothing here is a tip to protect you below the clothing. Take a drink from the pickle jar. That is right, drink about 2 oz or a shot glass the night before a fishing, hunting or camping trip. This will help to keep ticks off of your skin.

Keeping this in mind, you’ll never have to worry about ticks on your next outdoor adventure ever again.
