I don't know about you. But off spray does not work on me. I always get eaten alive by moscitos. And ticks well they love me and my family too. And the deet did not work on my kids. I found a ourdoor patch at my clinic. It is called Defend. It is used for sports, picnicking, hiking, swimming, camping, hunting, etc.
For me it is for living.
Two come to to a pack. It lasts for only 36 hours. Have to over 1 year old. I have one on my kid and told her to get used to
I put it on my rib cage.
They all all safe and all natural and made of Thiamine( vitamin B1)
So if this works......I can sleep better. Our own front line? Maybe a start.

2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.

Hi Martha's Vineyard,

I googled and found this site that sells Defend Patches and a Mosquito Repellent. Interesting that it is in Canada because they have BIG black flies and mosquitos up there!!! I am going to order some. Thank you for the information.

Thank you! This sounds great. Any word on whether it keeps ticks from biting? I plan to order it in any event. We all are covered in bites from these tiny black flies that come out in our yard in warm, humid weather.
