They say this is one of the worst woodtick seasons in years. From what I have seen in the short time we have been home again? That is an understatement. What I have been told so far is to use yellow Dial soap, to stop using perfume, and to use OFF insect repellant. I already use duct tape to trap them when one gets on me (which one did). AND ONE BIT ME. We have a furry little dog (whom husband continues to walk with impunity). We will be having him shaved this week. I just panic when these things get on me. Anybody? Barbara .
