This Offs Me Tics !
Ticks are an epidemic this year, and these things are as lethal as a
venomous snake in the wrong scenario! Use a lint roller right after
being in the woods or on a brush walk.. for humans & pets: Please
not only read it, but share it! Make sure we get the word out about
these tics and the disease they carry!
Summer is around the corner! Time for camping, hiking and getting
outside to play. Don't let those pesky annoying ticks stop you. Here's
how with a simple homemade solution!
Repellent for your pets:
For pets, add 1 cup of water to a spray
bottle, followed by 2 cups of distilled white vinegar. Ticks hate the
smell and taste of vinegar, and will be easily be repelled by this
ingredient alone. Then, add two spoonfuls of vegetable or almond oil,
which both contain sulfur (another natural tick repellent).
To make a repellent that will also deter fleas, mix in a few spoonfuls
of lemon juice, citrus oil, or peppermint oil, any of which will repel
ticks and fleas while also creating a nicely scented repellent. Spray
onto the pet's dry coat, staying away from sensitive areas including
eyes, nose, mouth, and genitals. When outdoors for an extended period,
spray this solution on two to three times per day.
a spray bottle, mix 2 cups of distilled white vinegar and 1 cup of
water. To make a scented solution so you do not smell like bitter
vinegar all day, add 20 drops of your favorite essential oil.
Eucalyptus oil is a calm, soothing scent that also works as a tick
repellent, while peppermint and citrus oils give off a strong crisp
scent that also repel ticks.
After mixing the solution, spray onto clothing, skin, and hair before
going outdoors. Reapply every four hours to keep ticks at bay, and
examine your skin and hair when back inside to make sure no ticks are
on the body.
