No, it doesn’t work very well. The best thing to do is wear long sleeved shirts and pants, tuck your pants into your boots, and wear a hat. Check yourself when you get home, it takes a while for Lyme disease to enter the bloodstream.

    I have done some research and the could not find any good natural answers . A good site I cannot remember recommended only one non organic product which was pymethrins which is found in a lot of flea and tick products. I found a 36 percent concentrate and have been spraying every two to three week to control a tick problem that came with a pound puppy we adopted. It works fairly well at higher strengths as recommended on the label.
