We have collected some sites that offer information on how to protect yourself and your loved ones from tick bites.
Here are some other helpful resources for choosing a bug repellent.
EWG’s Guide to Bug Repellents in the Age of Zika – The Environmental Working Group’s guide is our favorite and very clear, however the landing page is really Zika-centric, and does not offer names of specific products.
Find the Insect Repellent that is Right for You – This is a good tool from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but gives you broad results unless you know the company/ingredient/etc.
Personal Protection Measures: Insect Repellents – A Fact Sheet from the Tick-Borne Disease Prevention FAQ Series by the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health, New York.
Choosing and Using Insect Repellents – It can be difficult to decide which product to use when you are planning to be outdoors and want to be protected from ticks. The information you will find here from National Pesticide Information Center and the EPA’s Insect Repellent Locator can be useful when deciding on insect repellents.
