All you need is a decent lint roller (the kind with adhesive layers) and a few moments of your time. Simply pack the roller with you when you’re taking a hike or working in brush and roll it on your clothing from time to time. You’ll be shocked to see what you pick up after a short hike.
If you want to minimize the risk of ticks hopping onto you as you walk, add some peppermint or lavender essential oil to your regimen. You can spray them on your clothing or rub a tiny amount on your skin topically. If you have very sensitive skin you may want to dilute the peppermint oil with almond or jojoba oil. A slight tingling sensation from the peppermint is normal and nothing to worry about. The scent of peppermint and lavender helps to deter ticks, mosquitoes, and black flies but when conditions are unfavorable a lint roller should be used in addition to the oil.
