    watch out for ticks.....I pulled one out of my stomach a this morning. These things are gross and can spread serious diseases. Be careful. And check yourself........

    A friend showed me a place on his leg yesterday, that he said was a Seed Tick. Looked bad. Anyone tried using a Bounce dryer sheet to keep mosquitos, ticks, and other insects away? Say they keep away bees, wasp, hornets, ect. Haven't tried it.

    Thats a new one on me. I guess that since they are heat activated you guys in the south can get quick use out of them. I always find these things balled up in my underpants. Lots of heat there even in Wisconsin.:p

    Self-induced friction doesn't count as real heat.

    Just a lil diesel fuel on your shoes helps to keep them away also, they dont like it
