Permethrin seems to be the most effective thing on clothing for keeping insects and their 8 legged cousins away from you. DEET on kids may have some bad neurological side effects.

Chiggers are usually not a problem in the west being that the humidity is not high enough for them. They abound in the south and where the north has mild winters because they can’t handle cold either. What I read Permethrin is effective against them too.

Mosquitoes that land on treated cloth they are not going to get a chance to bite you.

The Lyme fatigue is still hanging on to me. For example I have had to sleep more than 12 hours today. I get up and do something for awhile and fall exhausted for a 2+ hour nap.

I have found that light stinging nettle stings greatly reduce my lyme aches and pains (Fibromyalgia). This use of stinging nettle is an old time treatment for rheumatism and arthritis.

There is a SDA doctor who has had a fight with Lyme. His web page is:

Last campout I went on, I woke up with a tick crawling on my arm. It hadn't bitten down, amazingly.

Thats interesting, I never thought about using stinging nettle, although mine went away and I don't think that I had it as bad as you... All I ever got was some meds that made me sun burn really easily!

That must have been Doxycycline. When I am on that I do not dare go out into the sunshine for more than 5 to 10 minuets.
The Doryx version seems a lot better.

Thanks for sharing these tips. I would like to share some of the tips that I found really useful.

We always spray our campsite when car camping as we are in an area that has tick problems. We carry a water hose and the type of handheld sprayer that attaches to the hose. It is very easy to use.

We use Ortho or Spectracide outdoor insect products. Read the label carefully.

Set the dial to the rate per gallon as specified on the chemical you are using. This is usually 1.5 to 3 ounces per gallon.

Hook up to the water at the site and spray. Don't set up any equipment until after the area has dried. We spray as early as we can and set up camp as late as we can.

We have found this to be very effective in getting rid of ticks, fire ants, ants, spiders, chiggers, and red bugs. It helps some with mosquitoes.

The thing you should remember when camping at a campsite in a campground is that it has been used over and over. Maybe even the day before you get there. A lot of times, the campers before you were not as neat as you, and dropped food all over the ground. This food is attracting all the insects in the area. Be especially careful in the sites that have the gravel pads as the food works under the gravel and you can't see it to get it out of your site. You also can't see the insects as well on this gravel surface.
Sometimes after camping, you also experience lice problems. Here are some of the tips to get rid of them.
Kerosene does work, but it is a rather drastic remedy these days. There is evidence that the mayonnaise or Vaseline idea may work as well, also olive oil. Leave them on for as long as possible - preferably overnight, which is what we did as children. You might help it along by wrapping the hair in a towel or tight cloth or in a shower cap while the solution is on.I found olive oil is the best as it also helps in and make your hair strong and beautiful.

When we were kids we used a fine toothed comb and combed them out and burned them as we caught them - I know, a bit gross. You also need to get the nits - the eggs on the strands of hair. You have to pull them off individually between your fingernails. You must either wash in very hot soapy water and dry in a hot dryer or store in a sealed plastic bag for two weeks. Lice do not live long off the human body.

A simple natural cure is to cut the hair very short and then use kerosene - makes it easier to control.

Lice tend to have cycles so they sometimes seem to disappear as quickly as they came, but they are very contagious. After years of experience with this issue, as a child, a parent, teacher and principal I would opt for an over-the-counter medication rather than natural remedies.
