What a brutal story!!!
I cannot tell you how many of them I have picked off of me over the years but it is in the hundreds
What I have not seen however is the number of ticks that got on me in May in Illinois
There were literally dozens of them on me after every pass through the woods!!
I did not know about Permanone at the time - I used regular bug spray and I am telling you they laughed at that - I am not sure they did not drink it as a before dinner cocktail (and I was the main course)
At any rate I have not seen any this week at all and for that I am grateful!
