Imagine you are feeling all great and comfortable by the fire or just having a nice meal after your hectic day and suddenly seeing a horrible tick that crawls up the back of your neck? Did this ever happen to you? All of a sudden, your inner peace is disrupted by this tiny creature that you certainly don’t want near you.
What’s more, tick bites can cause many diseases, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, Tularemia, Babesiosis, Colorado tick fever, and Relapsing fever.
Well, in this article we will present you a simple trick that will keep ticks far from you. You just need a lint roller with adhesive layers. When you see how simple and fast this technique is, you’ll never experience another such tick scenario.
Take a roller with you when hiking or working in areas you know ticks generally dwell on. You’ll be surprised by the number of ticks you’ve picked up during your walk in nature.
Another smart hack to do to prevent ticks from hopping onto you when in nature is using some peppermint essential oil. All you need to do is rub it on your skin or spray it on your clothes.
However, make sure you dilute it with some jojoba or almond oil if you have too sensitive skin. You may feel slight tingling sensation, but there’s nothing to worry about. The peppermint aroma will prevent not just ticks, but also black flies, and mosquitos. For finest results, use both, a lint roller and peppermint roller.
Even though the lint roller is better and easier to manage, you can also use some duct tape. Just cover it around your hand with the sticky side out.
If you are one of those who loves spending time in nature, you’ll find these tricks against ticks very handy. Feel free to share them with good friends who enjoy being outdoors.
