With all the warm weather this fall curious if folks have seen more ticks this year?

I normally hunt SE wi for bow hunting, but head north during pumpkin season.

Green Cty-I've had crazy amount of ticks on me.  Last weekend field dressed deer that was getting cool by the time I dressed her, ticks must have been vacating her onto me.  Must have had a dozen on me.  I think I'll try permethrine.

Ticks are out in full force the last week around my stomping grounds in Vilas and the U.P. Most of them have been very small and difficult to see. Probably 30-40 in the last week.

Elimitick by gamehide! They have all sorts of clothes that are tick and mosquito repellent and they really work and they also have dog vest that your dogs can wear I used the clothes for hunting and camping to keep the mosquitoes away and ticks off myself and my dog. Well worth the money!

I might have posted this on a different thread, but I sort of had a field test on the effectiveness of Permethrin.

Went turkey hunting one spring with a friend.  My clothes had Permethrin, he had Off or something like that.  At the end of the trip, I had 0 ticks on me.  I sat there waiting for him to pick off like 30 woodticks.  We literally sat next to each other, he was shooting and I was calling.  That sealed the deal for me.  To this day I have not had a tick, granted I'm sure it will happen at some point.

I use it deer hunting, I don't think it has a smell. Of course I don't have a deer nose either, however you already are giving off scent when you breath, sweat, etc.  So I think its fine to use personally, its no worse than any of that.  They do say its odorless as well.  I have tried other scent free sprays and thought they stink, so I don't always trust that.  But I can't smell Permethrin so it seems to be more of a legit claim.

JD, I order 2 or 3 of these a year.  Leave 1 or 2 at the cabin for anyone to use. Relative was bitten a few years back and  ended up with lyme disease.  Few months later heart attack. Not sure if it was related but... 

Buddy messaged me the deer he shot on Tuesday was loaded with ticks. Especially the crotch area, both wood and deer ticks. Adam's County. 

I'm sure other stores carry permethrin products. Just go to stores website and search 'Permethrin',. If you can't get some before you need it let me know, I'm not to far from you, West Bend.  Walmart had some on the shelf last week. Good luck hunting..

Look for the yellow pump spray of Sawyers , it has permithrin in it and it works ! When I am bear baiting all summer , I wash my baiting clothes in it and , it will be affective for several washes .

Thanks for the responses.

Regarding the permethrin,  I want to try this! 

 Where can you buy this? 

 Is it a spray that you can just put on clothes?

 Is it odorless?  I would use it for deer hunting.

Thanks!

Was grouse hunting last weekend In Bayfield and sawyer counties.

The dog was covered in them.

I sprayed my clothes with permethrin and had none.

It was the worst I have ever seen!

They were just awful all summer by me near Necedah.  I've been out hunting the last couple of weekends and I haven't seen any.  I was out checking out the apple trees and walking thru tall grass and still none.  Hope that continues that there aren't any.
