    Really never really thought about soaking my hammock. Although I do buy it in concentrate and mix it to spray the barn. It is really cheap that way, it comes in a little jug with a mixing cup you squeeze the right amount in.

    Be cautious here. Many of the concetrates are for outdoor use and contain dispersants that you do not want on your skin.

Each and everyone of them picked ticks off of them endlessly even upon returning home. I did not have a single tick. It works.
    I'm going the Sawyer route this year also. The boy and I did an overnight a couple weeks ago. We each got one tick (gone and got the head no problem). My question is for my hammock treatment. Should I spray on the outside of my HH or hang it and spray the inside so it soaks in better?

    +100 on being more wary of Lyme and West Nile than anything else. It would kill me for my kids to get either of those while doing something we love so much when the preventative is easily at hand.
