We live in tick country and have just learned to live with the dang things. Deet works 'ok' but there is a spray-on that you apply to your clothes (not skin) that works well i guess. I can't rember what it's called (limes affects the memory :-) . Out Vet said 80% of the local doge test positive and our beloved lab died of it last year, we used Front Line as directed.

I'll have to tell my husband about the panty hose. Anything to keep a tick and a chiggar off. They make those babies in jumbo.

The product you spray on clothing and let dry is called Sawyers Permetnric.

Ticks shouldnt be a problem around the campground, some of the hilking trails do go through some high grass/brush.(long pants tucked into socks, deet spray if U want, and check after venturing out) Never had trouble with ticks at Itasca, now Milacs Kathio SP was a different story

I stay out of brush/grassy areas unless I'm wearing long loose pants, longsleeved light shirt, and my eight inch boots....not just for ticks, but because that's where I've met the most rattlesnakes. The dog I wipe down with baby oil- not only does it improve her smell, it seems to make the bugs slide off or something.

It does make for a dirtier dog, though!

I think it just makes the dog too greasy for the bugs' taste or something. They don't like oils of any kind. Or maybe they can't get a grip on her because she's too slippery. I don't know why it seems to work- or even if it's the reason she doesn't get any ticks. But since she doesn't, I'm going to keep using it.

I will add that she's a shorthaired dog. Could be a bigger mess with a longhaired one...
