I was told drinking apple cider vinegar helps keeping ticks away.  I've been drinking apple cider vinegar for few years just for health benefits.  Never had a single tick on me.

 

 

 

Yep, I've been doing the same for years......one tablespoon of Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar daily.

 

In my many years of romping thru the underbrush at BSP and Cranes Beach I've never had an incident of having to remove a tick from my body. Some may call it luck, but I attribute it to ingesting a daily dose of Bragg's.

It wouldnt be fermented, by any chance?

Yep, that's the one, Bill.

Bragg's is unpasteurized and contains the "mother of vinegar", which is basically a colony of beneficial bacteria fermentation.

It is written, that back in 400 BC, Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, used it for its amazing natural qualities.

Joe,

So Braggs has been around since 400BC?

No, no, no.

Bragg's, the well known health crusaders, established their health stores in 1912.

However, ancient records that predate the birth of Christ by hundreds of years, speak to Hippocrates using vinegar with the mother, to treat the various ailments that afflicted folks.

So vinegar predated leaches and snakes?

No.

On the fifth, or maybe it was the sixth day, the Lord said "let the earth bring forth creepy crawlers".

So......if you believe the words in Genesis.....leaches and snakes predate vinegar.

Great reminder to the souls who sit in the tick world and suffer the consequences of being bitten . Bob why not try it since you do not want to do any thing else to prevent tick bites and see if you could find some benefit , who knows it may work and then you could really enjoy sitting in the woods doing what ever you want, listing to the call of the wild.

Hate to say it, but they haven't been bad around here yet. I bought Permethin to spray my turkey clothes with but haven't gotten around to it yet. Still, have not had a tick on me this season.

 

I leave the clothes outside between hunts just in case. Don't want to bring any inside with me.

Some vets carry tick spoons which work great on dogs or people-small 1/2 or 1/4 table spoon size spoon with a v-notch on the spoon-guide the notch betwwen the tick and skin and lift straight out-works great unless the tick is imbedded.
