I thought I would post this and ask if anyone has used this product before (Sawyer Fisherman's Formula)? Consumer Reports seems to like it.

I'm also considering the Permethrin product for the clothes.

Thermocell's are awesome if you aren't moving like BB says. We use them regularly on our patio (one hung below my wife's and my chair). I also use them in the deer stand and the deer don't seem to smell them either but they do kick out a visible puff of "smoke" every once in a while.

I'm happy to report no ticks or chiggers from our four cache loop trek. This hike traditionally has brought out the ticks.

I did find two ticks on the baby carrier but only after it had sat on the ground during lunch.

I sprayed the baby carrier, pants, shoes, socks, and outer shirt for all three of us. My wife, baby bashii, and myself. That's all I had done because I forgot to bring the lotion I bought to apply to exposed skin.

We'll see how this goes as the months get hotter and chiggers get more rampant.

Happy so far.

I was told long ago that animal flea collars wrapped around ankles and wrists help considerably for ticks and chiggers.. Mosquitos on the other hand, are the devil's......wait, no, that's chiggers.

I've been to 3 different stores the Sawyer website said carried it and haven't found it yet.  Where did you find it?

Finally got around to using the lotion. Used it on my arms and head. No mossies but they sure went after everywhere else I didn't protect myself.

The lotion did make the back of my neck feel a little warm similar to what deet does but no where near as bad. I'm pretty happy with the results.

Just FYI
