For most of the country, spring is here, and you’re probably itching to break your cabin fever and hit the trails or turkey woods. While spring means longer days, higher temps, and those coveted turkey gobbles, it also means an increase in insects and other biting critters. Before you tear through the woods this spring make sure you have the best tick repellent, so you can spend less time checking for ticks and more time outdoors.

Ticks aren’t just annoying, they also carry and transmit serious diseases like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF), Lyme Disease, and Anaplasmosis. And if you’re a die-hard meat lover, this last one can give you an allergy to red meat that may or may not go away. So, if you don’t want a mile’s long list of side effects or to have to eat the same food that your typical game food eats, check out the best tick repellent to keep you protected this spring.
