Tick's, What do you use to repel?

I hear it's going to be a bad year for Tick infestation, what do you use? I use Vectra for my Lab, and Repel for me. I have read Permethrin is a better repellant for use on clothes only. Input would be appreciated. I had three of the little buggers (pun) on me, and found one on the Dog dead, (the Tick, not the Dog)) and it's only April.

Permethrin on clothes for sure. Works as in Arkansas in Spring & Summer when have more ticks than a Watch Shop.

In the past bug juice that was close to 100% DEET on skin but I've heard about bad long term effects on humans so I don't use it too much anymore.

I haven't yet tried this, but I saw a video illustrating that a lint roller will effectively remove ticks from a dog..

That's interesting. The Vectra generally kills the Ticks when they bite the Dog but, of course, it's not 100%.
