    Of course it is. So is ethyl alcohol, but itís only harmful in large quantities.

    I donít think anyone here is disputing that fact. The very study that you posted showed the opposite of your personal beliefs.

    If you chose to believe something other than the study reports, you should point out the flaws in their research or conduct your own study.

    Hereís a link to the study in case it hasnít been posted yet: https://www.nap.edu/read/9274/chapter/2

    You all know my thoughts on this issue..... I'd pour 10 gallons of gasoline on myself while smoking a cigarette if the gas kept the BLOOD SUCKING TICKS, BLOOD SUCKING SPIDERS AND FACE EATING RACOONS away lol. Get rid of the headache by cutting off the head is what I say lol, I'll deal with the side effects if I'm fact there are any later. I treat my boots, gaitors and pack with 100% DEET, everything else and skin with Permethrin + Picardin and have never had any problems. I even ~ carefully ~ spray it on my wife and kids and their gear/legs/arms too.... So far we are side effect and disease free! I did find out last week that nymph Lone Star ticks are so fast that they will crawl from boot to upper leg well before the chemicals kick in. The ones that got stuck under my laces ,in the mesh of my boots, on my gaitors did all die after a few mins , and the few that did make it up my leg died before they could latch on completely. I'd say it worked...... and it wasn't 2 or 3 ticks either, no it was more like 200-300. No joke. Tigglet and Jellyfish had the same amounts on them as well.

    For what it's worth: essential oils like tea tree, eucalyptus, lime and lemon can be quite toxic as well if used wrongly or in too high quantities. Still you suggest using them. Yes, some of the remedies you list are working to some extent, but they are far less effective and need to be applied in higher frequency in order to offer a reasonable amount of protection. Also, you can never be sure that they work at any given time. That might be acceptable if all you risk is an itchy spot. To me it stops being acceptable when there is a high risk of catching a serious disease. I'd rather use Permethrin, Icaridin or even Deet than having to take much worse drugs later on to cure something that could have been prevented with less damage.

    A guy I work with today contracted Lymes disease while we were at SERE school. Typical military he was not diagnosed for years, when the effects had become severe. He's still alive today, but is suffering a living hell. I would not hesitate to use the strongest available chemicals to prevent this, the risks of misdiagnosis are far too high and the disease effects far too severe. I soak everything in Permethrin and use Deet liberally every time I go in the mountains and then check myself regularly.
