Does not prevent, but in most cases will cure. I used to take public transportation to hike the woods around New York City. Then I'd find a tick crawling on me while riding the bus home. "Umm, what do I do with it now?" Never know what you'll see people doing on public transport!!

Thanks...that is what I wanted to know: if it cures it. Good to know.

Smile...I found one crawling up my arm last weekend on our drive home--Jeff was driving (probably a good thing)... I grabbed it and threw it out the window--probably should've killed it first, but who knows...hitting the pavement at 55 MPH or so *might've* done it in. At least I wasn't on a bus!

Same here - apparently a combination of ample rainfall and taller than usual pasture grass/forbs is to blame...
