How To Stay Thoroughly Protected From Ticks

source: The Vineyard Gazette

Ticks are right up there with mosquitoes when it comes to types of insects that I despise. Ticks really don’t do much good for this world, and they carry multiple diseases that can seriously threaten your health. If you live amongst or spend a lot of time in wooded areas, you have to be extra careful, as this is a tick’s favorite environment. Wearing long pants and high socks is one way to protect them from biting, but how can you be sure you aren’t accidentally bringing them home via your clothing?

Well, this hack is how you can be sure! This Facebook post has almost 162,000 shares, and it’s likely due to the fact that it’s brilliant. All you have to do is go over your clothing a few times with a lint roller. The sticky residue will pick up any ticks that might be hiding on your clothing. That way, you aren’t accidentally bringing ticks inside your home after spending time outdoors.

My yearly share: Ticks are expected to be bad this season. Keep a link roller in your car and go over yourself before climbing in. Safe for dogs too. 🙂 (not my o.p.)

If you hike or walk your dog a lot, it’s not a bad idea to keep a lint roller in your car and give your clothing a quick swipe before getting in your vehicle. If you live in the country, consider keeping a lint roller in your garage and rolling your outfit before heading inside your home. When it comes to ticks and the diseases they carry, an ounce of prevention is certainly worth a pound of cure.
