"100% honest - Highly recommend"
July 5, 2016
Love Sawyers! After spending a day clearing part of a thicket, I had 30 small seed ticks attached to my skin. They crawled up my legs, under my shirt and attached themselves to my skin. Frustrated, I bought Sawyer spray to try. I applied the spray on a pair of old tan pants and a light weight off white long sleeve shirt. (TIP: I used the clip hanger to hold the pants up and a regular hanger for the shirt. I hung them off a tree branch while applying the spray. This allowed me to walk around and really hit all parts of the clothing).
The next weekend, I got dressed in my Sawyer treated apparel and then tromping through the weeds to get to the thicket. I soon had 16 ticks crawling up my pant leg and only a couple managed to get above my knees. Most of them slowed to a small crawl and stopped or they just fell off the pants. I was impressed, very impressed!! I pulled a couple off my pants and held them in my hand, breathing on them trying to get them to move towards the CO2, but they didn't move - they were dead. Confident that I wasn't going to have any issues, I spent 6 hours on a hot summer day recapturing the land from the thicket. Happy to report that when I got home, there were no ticks on my clothing or attached to my body. Which made my wife extremely happy ... which leads me to my "100% honest - Highly recommend" review.
