How to Keep Ticks Off You While Hunting
Hunting is an age-old activity that brings humans and dogs together in the great outdoors. As hunting requires the tracking of wild animals, it often leads to long excursions off trails and deep into forests, fields, and other densely-wooded regions. These areas are prime tick habitats. As a hunter, you'll want to be prepared to protect yourself and your hunting dog against ticks during your hunts. Below, our team here at TickZapper® will give you tips on doing just that. Learn how to keep ticks off you while hunting, and learn more about fast and highly-effective tick removal with our revolutionary TickZapper® pet tick removal tool.
Tick Prevention Tips for Hunters
Want to learn how to keep ticks off you while hunting? You've come to the right place. At TickZapper®, we're passionate about helping hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts keep themselves and their pets tick-free. Read the following tips to learn how to keep ticks off you while hunting and protect your hunting dog in any environment.
- Wear protective clothing. Wearing jackets, long-sleeved shirts, and pants will protect your skin from any ticks that you may encounter. Without easily-accessible blood, most ticks will simply fall off your body. (To spot those ticks that don't fall off, we recommend wearing light-colored clothing.)
- Apply bug spray and anti-tick medication. Before beginning a hunt, you'll want to apply bug spray to further dissuade ticks from biting you. For your hunting dog, we highly recommend medications such as Frontline to reduce the chances of tick bites.
- Avoid dense foliage if possible. Hunting often requires hunters and their dogs to venture into the brush. However, to keep yourself and your dog tick-free, you'll want to try to keep to the trails whenever possible.
- Perform tick checks regularly. If you're going to be hunting for the better part of the day (or overnight), you'll want to perform routine tick checks every few hours. This will allow you identify and remove any ticks you or a your pet may have picked up as quickly as possible. Packing the portable, easy-to-use, and highly-effective TickZapper® will make tick removal for your hunting dog easier than ever during your hunt. Learn more below.
