I have thought of some interesting concepts in tick related diseases defense practices.
A. For anybody doing business outdoors might think about light colored shoes. You can see the ticks much better and respond quicker.
B. Make killer shoes by spraying them with Permethrin. Includes socks.
C. This would kill tick that enters your world from the ground up before it gets to your groin area where it might other wise stop for lunch.
D. This is for trail and sidewalk hikers and backyard action.
Just some helpful thoughts going into my day.
