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.
Insect Repellent Locator – Similar to EPA also has notes about using the product on a child.
