Me and my lil brother were hiking up Hotel Creek in Kings Canyon around 2000 or so, he wanted to get a pic of me with the high sierra behind when we were near the overlook, so he laid on his back in the manzanita up near the top, got the pic, we hung out at the overlook for a while, later when we get back to Sentinel campground he gets itchy and yep, he finds a tick in his sweatshirt. He put it on the picnic table and I doused it with DEET and all it did was swim around and crawl out and didn't die till I smacked it with the broadside of a pocket knife.

DEET isn't an insecticide. So I'm not surprised that the tick didn't die.

DEET also is not going to keep mosquitoes or ticks off of you but it will keep them from biting.

I really enjoyed the "check you for ticks" song.
