Priest's Cassock and Monk's Habit and Bug Spray

Post by GeorgeStevens »

I have a question that's a bit different than usual, but hopefully some knowledgeable people can help.

In our rural area, an increase of ticks has become a problem, given that they carry Lyme disease.

How have monks, that have established their monasteries in wooded area, been dealing with the issue. Given that the black habits that are worn can make it easy for these insects to latch on? Is spraying the habit with bug spray an option?
Also, the same would apply to visiting priests wearing their inner and outer cassock.

Thanks and God Bless!
