Reducing exposure to ticks can help prevent Lyme disease and other tickborne diseases. Although it is currently recommended to dry clothes on high heat for one hour to kill ticks on clothing after spending time outdoors, this recommendation is based on a single published study of tick survival under various washing conditions and a predetermined one-hour drying time. We conducted a series of tests to investigate the effects of temperature, humidity, and drying time on killing nymphal and adult blacklegged ticks Ixodes scapularis. Muslin bags containing 5 ticks each were washed then dried or dried only with six cotton towels during each drying cycle. We have identified effective, easily implemented methods to rid clothing of ticks after spending time outdoors. Placing clothing directly in a dryer and drying for a minimum of 6min on high heat will effectively kill ticks on clothing.

If you've found furrows, holes or threadbare spots in your woolens you've got clothes moths. It's the caterpillar larval stage of these moths that does the damage. They feed on wool, hair and feathers found in household items such as furs, blankets, upholstery, pillows, piano felts, clothing, carpets, brush bristles and synthetic fabrics that are blended with wool. Clothes moth habits can be helpful in distinguishing them from pantry moths in your house. Clothes moths have a distinctive fluttering compared to the straighter flight of pantry moths.
Treatment for head lice is recommended for persons diagnosed with an active infestation. All household members and other close contacts should be checked; those persons with evidence of an active infestation should be treated. Some experts believe prophylactic treatment is prudent for persons who share the same bed with actively-infested individuals.
