The mummy of an Egyptian puppy whose left ear was infested with 61 preserved brown dog ticks has been examined by archaeoentomologist Jean-Bernard Huchet of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris. This particular puppy may have been killed by a tick-borne disease.
LISTERINE!! any color/flavor. Pour it full strength in good sturdy spray bottle. Spray around your tent site & picnic table or patio & lawn chairs. (I mean saturate the ground and you can spray a little on things that you don't mind getting the mist in). You will be amazed! No Mosquitoes, no no-see-ems/gnats. You will have to repeat after rain or if animals stir up the dirt a lot. This is safe for kids, dogs and it doesn't have the stickiness or chemical smell. Try it!
