I hunted yesterday morning and afterwards went to hang a new stand, unfortunatley I never got the stand hung because I relized I was covered in seed ticks again. I made a Mad dash to the creek to wash them off. 2 weeks ago I got covered as well after I went in to a cedar thicket to recover a doe I shot so I wasnt about to let these ones grab hold of me I had a couple hundred on me easy luckily I got them off quick enough only 4 or 5 got dug in. How late into the year can these things survive I live in southwest missouri you would think they would be dead by know. Is any one else still having problems with them? These are the little ones only about the size of a pinhead .

I'm glad we don't have them down here in GA. Got a case of them this summer in Iowa and they bother me much more than chiggers do down here.

Seed ticks?

I live in south/central Iowa, and have never heard of seed ticks. Are they the common tick that lives all over the place here, or more like the smaller deer ticks? Been out a few times this year so far and haven't found one yet. This summer was a diffrent story altogether.

Amen and Amen!!!! I haven't got a seed tick or any tick for that matter in 4 years since I started using that stuff!!!!!! And I am not exaggerating!!! You can get it al wal-mart (usually in the isle with the camping stuff around all the other bug sprays. Just spray it on the night before the hunt and let it dry on your pants and it will not smell but will still KILL the ticks.

Here is the can...

That must be an Arkansas thing because it seems like no matter where I see a post pop up about ticks, an Arkansan always recommends Repel. :)

Works in New England too:) I have not had a live tick on my person or in my house since I started using it several years ago. When I get the first deer of the season I spray the garage floor as well. The only ticks I ever see now are dead.

What about smell? Even some of the "unscented" stuff has a smell. How do you get around that?

You have them in Georgia, you just haven't gotten into a patch of them yet. I have lived in MS and now Alabama and there is no way that Georgia doesnt have them.
