    Pants tucked into all rubber (lacrosse burly type) knee boots goes a very long way to solving the problem. Learned this once years ago following a friend around the marsh in the summer. He was in sneakers and got wet, which was fine in that aspect, but he had about 100 ticks on him and I had two. I was wearing knee boots tucked in.

    Tucked in knee boots and repellent on the pant legs takes care of most problems.

    Going the extra mile can save you a lot of problems though.

    Good post George.

    Last year at the end of April (25th & 26th I think), I ran 4 dogs in the Long Island Field Trial Retriever Club HRC event. We ran both Saturday and Sunday, 6 Seasoned tests and 2 Finished tests. Dog ages from 4 years to 13 years. I have used FRONTLINE PLUS and HEARTGUARD forever on my dogs, very seldom do anything for myself, clothing, sprays/chemicals, etc.

    Dog results...... Finished - 2 Fails, Seasoned - 2 Fails, 4 Passes. Seasoned Title for Magic and 2 Passes for my 13 year old Murphy.

    Bug results...... NO CREEPY CRAWLEYS ON ANY OF US REGARDS....... Perhaps the dry spring, but I was told they had more water than in recent history.

    As always " your mileage may vary"

    Judy, the product is great. I have used it. However I would not spray the inside of my car with it
    If you do get it, read the bottle.
    I bought it thru Amazon.

    I agree; last year they weren't too bad. 2 years ago------YIKES!!!!!

    There wasn't a dry eye in the house when Murphy got his ribbons. Congratulations, and it was great to meet you!-Paul

    There was an article in a Long Island newspaper by someone who did some kind of tick survey. He did some sort of tick count and reported that there were far fewer ticks than he had counted before.

    Cuomo is right. New York is no place for a conservative. Way too many ticks.

    I am bumping this because the HT/FT season is here.

    Also, LIRFTC does have HRC Tests next weekend and everyone who wants to come here should not be discouraged. No reason to miss out!
