Well , we will be out and about in prime tick country today. I will try to get the dcs into long trousers and tops but it is forecast to reach 29 degrees today so I doubt they'll stay in them for long. I've found some tick spray and will do a check tonight. I hate ticks, I've removed 3 so far this year. It really is a disadvantage of living in forrin.

Don't know ... but dd got her first one today.

She got it off herself, so it mustn't have embedded, and was most intrigued ...

I have heard rumours that tea tree oil works?

I don't know of a tick repellent, only mozzie

OK, tick season has started. What are your best tips for repelling the little sods? I really don't fancy spraying us all with Deet but what alternatives are there that work?
