Lots of families have been in touch to tell us about their experiences with ticks. Read their stories here.

We’ve had confirmed cases from our local park [London], not just the wilds of Devon, so it is a concern. I think it’s a great product!

How to protect against ticks

Here are our ‘Top Tick Tips’:

  • Stick to clearly marked paths – to avoid brushing past vegetation where ticks may be lurking!
  • Spray our naturally derived tick repellent on areas of exposed skin
  • Be especially aware on children of ankles, midriffs, backs of necks, behind ears, hairlines and groins, as they are the perfect height for lurking ticks and they love dark, damp places!
  • Carry out regular ‘tick checks’ after outdoor activities
  • Keep our tick removers in the house and with you on days out

Remember, ticks can be as small as a poppy seed or pin head and tick bites don’t always hurt so you may not know you’ve been bitten – check thoroughly!
