Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why should I use Ticks-N-All?
A. Ticks-N-All is an 100% Organic insect repellent allows you to continue to play and work outdoors with a reduced risk of bites from pests.
Q. When should I use Ticks-N-All?
A. For ticks, fleas, flies and chiggers, apply when you are going to be outdoors. Even if you don’t notice insects there is a good chance that they are around. Many of the mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus bite between dusk and dawn. If you are outdoors around these times of the day, it is especially important to apply repellent. In many parts of the country, there are mosquitoes that also bite during the day, and some of these mosquitoes have also been found to carry West Nile virus.
Q. How often should Ticks-N-All be reapplied?
A. In general you should reapply repellent every three hours for mosquitoes, and every four hours for ticks. Sweating, perspiration or getting wet may mean that you need to reapply repellent more frequently. Ticks-N-All is safe and is not limited to amount used, so reapply as often as necessary.
Q. How does Ticks-N-All work?
A. Ticks-N-All is a repellent and does not kill the pest. Insects are attracted to people by skin odors and carbon dioxide from breath. The active ingredients in Ticks-N-All make the person unattractive for feeding.
Q. What is DEET?
A. DEET (short for N, N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) is a widely used chemical. The U.S. Department of Agriculture developed DEET for the Army in 1946. The federal Environmental Protection Agency has registered approximately 230 products containing DEET, and EPA estimates that one -third of the U.S. population uses DEET each year.
While the EPA has found that the normal use of DEET does not present a health concern to the general population, the use of products containing DEET has been associated with rashes, swelling and itching, eye irritation and, less frequently, slurred speech, confusion and seizures. Products with high concentrations of DEET are considered hazardous to children particularly, and the EPA no longer allows claims on labels of products containing DEET that the product is safe for children.
Recent research at Duke University with rats showed that frequent and prolonged use of DEET caused brain-cell death and behavioral changes in the animals.
Q. Can Ticks-N-All protect the area around me?
A. Repellents are effective only at short distances from the treated surface, so you may still see insects nearby.
Q. What guidelines are available for using Ticks-N-All on children?
A. When using on a child, apply it to your own hands and then rub them on your child. Avoid the eyes and mouth and use it sparingly around their ears. Do not apply repellent to a child's hands. (Children may tend to put their hands in their mouths.)
Q. Is there an age limit for Ticks-N-All?
A. For under 3 months of age, parents need to take into account the amount of time that a child will be outdoors, exposure to pests, and the risk of vector borne disease in the area.
Q. What are some general considerations to remember when using Ticks-N-All?
A. Use enough repellent to cover exposed skin or clothing. Do not apply repellent to cuts, wounds, or irritated skin. Do not spray directly to your face. Spray your hands and then rub them carefully over the face, avoiding eyes and mouth.
Q. What are some reactions to be aware of when using Ticks-N-All?
A. May cause skin reactions in rare cases. Eye irritation can occur if product gets in the eye.
Q. Can I use Ticks-N-All on my pet?
A. Yes, Ticks-N-All's pet versions have been tested with positive results on animals.
Animals 10 lbs or less we suggest spraying a bandana with Ticks-N-All and tie around the neck of your pet. Animals larger then 10 lbs or have long hair you might need to spray directly on your pet.. For best results rub your hand against the lay of the hair directly behind your hand.
