3M ultrathon works very well, but, it is not scent free.

Long pants and duct tape If you want to stay scent free. Where high ankle boots, tuck you pants into your boots and cover the top of your boots with duct tape.

Put tick and flea collars on your cuffs and pant legs

I'd try that but I KNOW THAT IF ANYONE SAW ME I'D NEVER LIVE IT DOWN.

My wife would probably go out and get me a dog collar to match.

I use a product called Permanone with Permetheryn (spelling?) in it. From when I didn't use it to when I did, it really cut down on the number of ticks that I found afterwards. The thing with it is, that you're not supposed to get it on your skin. So what I do is i spray my clothes down the night before, focusing on cuffs, collars, etc... and let it dry overnight. That way I avoid contact with it. They say an application is good for about a week.

Here's what you need to get a save a ton of money in the process. Permectrin II. You can get it online or at a local COOP. The active ingredient is 10% permethrin, the same stuff that InDaWoods was talking about. An 8 oz. bottle of Permectrin II will last you for years.

I use about 1/2 oz. with a gallon of water and spray my clothes down with it the night before. I haven't had any problems with ticks or chiggers since using it. Just don't spray it on your skin.
