Imagine you are feeling all nice and cozy by the fire or just having a pleasant meal after your busy day and suddenly seeing a disgusting tick that crawls up the back of your neck? Did this ever happen to you? Suddenly, your inner peace is interrupted by this tiny creature that you certainly don’t want anywhere near you.
What’s more, tick bites can cause numerous diseases, including Rocky Mountain, spotted fever, Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, Tularemia, Babesiosis, Colorado tick fever, and Relapsing fever.
Well, in this post you’ll learn a simple trick that will keep ticks away from you.You only need a lint roller with adhesive layers. Once you see how simple and quick this trick is, you’ll never experience another such tick scenario.
Take a roller with you when hiking or working in areas you know ticks usually dwell on. You’ll be shocked by the number of ticks you’ve picked up during your walk in nature.
Another clever hack to do to prevent ticks from hopping onto you when in nature is using some peppermint essential oil. All you have to do is rub it on your skin or spray it on your clothing.
However, make sure you dilute it with some jojoba or almond oil if you have too sensitive skin. You might feel slight tingling sensation, but there’s nothing to worry about. The peppermint scent will deter not only ticks, but also black flies, and mosquitos. For best results, use both, a lint roller and peppermint roller.
Other essential oils that deter bugs are lemongrass oil, lavender oil, pennyroyal oil, eucalyptus oil, and lemon oil.
Even though the lint roller is better and easier to manage, you can also use some duct tape. Just wrap it around your hand with the sticky side out.
