I overheard someone saying Apple Cider Vinegar, if taken internally, repels ticks. I live where I get many wood ticks every year.
I have been taking apple cider vinegar daily for a while. Hearing that comment made me wonder as this year, I have had "NO" ticks on me and I have been outside raking etc. and should be covered like usual.
I am truly convinced that taking a tablespoonful every day has somehow repelled the ticks.
