OK, I am fixated on the crawlies

See below--insect time! Now, I learn there is special clothing permeated with permethrin that significantly reduces tick bites.

I know several people struggling with Lyme and its aftermath. You don't want this.

The poison clothes supposedly hold up through 70 washes.

They did one study of 67 workers--all reported tick bites. During the first tick season, 84 bites were recorded by 64 siubjects, This compared with 493 bites by 63 people in the untreated clothing group. Yow! Big difference.

In the second season, it was 181 bites compared with 281.

I guess you find these duds by googling...

Might be worth it if you frisk around outside a lot.
