Default Spray-on tick repellent?

Yesterday we brought one of the dogs in for his yearly physical. While I was there, I inquired about yard sprays that supposedly kill ticks as they are out in force here already. Blech! I'd rather have Wolf Spiders in the house than deal with ticks, but I digress.

None of the staff at my vets office could say whether the yard sprays really work or not, but they did mention that there was some kind of spray at Dick's Sporting Goods that works well. It isn't a yard spray, but it is safe to spray on clothing so ticks will go elsewhere. Has anybody heard of it or know what this spray is called?

I can protect the dogs via products such as Advantix, but I need something for me. I have enough issues. I don't need to add Lyme Disease to the list.

Ticks are bad out on the trails here in Florida. I use Repel Sportsmen Max (40% Deet) before every ride and it does a great job of keeping ticks off of me.

Thanks, John.

It seems as though Dick's doesn't carry it, but Sports Authority does. Next time we're up that way, I'll get some.
