Disclaimer: TERC promotes tick-bite protection and tick-borne disease prevention by engaging, educating and empowering people to take action. Wearing tick repellent clothing treated with permethrin is a proven effective strategy for tick-bite protection. While there are many ways to obtain permethrin-treated tick repellent clothing, Insect Shield is the only company we know of that commercially treats an individual's clothing. TERC is providing this downloadable PDF in the spirit of empowering tick bite protection, but wants you to know that Insect Shield LLC is a TERC supporting sponsor. TERC has independently evaluated this service on several occasions and can report that it lives up to all of its claims. Neither TERC nor The University of Rhode Island guarantees tick bite protection or tick-borne disease prevention when using this service.
