Insecticide “Gaiters” Stop Ticks
Air Mesh Tick Gaiters wrap around your pants. According to the company, they have been shown to slow the climb of adult deer ticks by 4 to 8 times compared to common pant fabrics, such as khakis. A slower climb means longer exposure to the long lasting repellent on each fiber of the gaiters.
The repellent consists of millions of tiny microcapsules bound to fibers throughout the gaiters. Movement and friction causes some of the microcapsules to burst, gradually releasing the tick repellent.
Lymeez Tick 12-in. tall gaiters sell on Amazon for $29.99 plus S&H; shorter 8-in. high gaiters sell for $19.95 plus S&H. An untreated 12-in. version that requires you to spray on your own repellent sells for $24.95 plus S&H.
