Going Outdoors? “Tick” This Item Off Your Must-Take List (Win!)

August 17, 2020

With symptoms ranging from rash to fever, chills, aches, neck stiffness, migraines, joint pain and even neurological problems, Lyme disease has increasingly been in the medical and media spotlight (Justin Bieber and the Hadids are among the A-listers who suffer from this mysterious tick-born infection).

Protect yourself this season by wearing light-coloured clothing so you can easily spot a tick and by arming yourself with a high-performance insect repellent like the Great Outdoors, available in three convenient applications: aerosol, pump spray and lotion. We particularly like packing the 45ml lotion with carabiner; it’s especially convenient to hook on a purse, backpack or golf bag to be ready in any situation when bugs may bite. Available with DEET or DEET-free (with Icaridin), Great Outdoors has something for everyone! All products offer heavy-duty protection against a wide range of pests like ticks, blackflies, midges, deer flies, mosquitoes and chiggers.

Great Outdoors is also proudly made in Canada, with products available on,, and in all Canadian Tire stores. There is also a value three-pack available at Costco. Helping us all enjoy the Great Outdoors since 1948, the Great Outdoors provides just the right protection for work or play!

Protect yourself and your family today! —Vita Daily

    This is a great gift My son is in the out doors all the time. He is a mountain biker. He is a out doors man. I would love to win this for him and his wife, They are always in the mountains. I worry about ticks. We where camping years ago my older son had a tick. I put it in a pill bottle and took it to a lab. It was a tick
    I got the whole thing out lucky.
