Proven to Slow Ticks Climb
Untreated 3D mesh was tested against untreated khaki pants. The distance covered in 3 minutes by 48 adult female deer ticks was measured. Timing was stopped if a tick reached 35″ (89 cm) before 3 minutes which happened most of the time on the khaki pants—it never occurred on the 3D mesh. The median distance travelled by a tick over the 3D mesh was 4.5″ (11.4 cm) vs. 35″ (89 cm) for the khaki pants. The confidence intervals demonstrate a 4–8X slowing of a tick’s ascent with 3D mesh as compared with khaki pants.
