Spray high concentration of DEET on shoes, socks and pants. Deep Woods OFF works for me.

Long pants, long sleeves, pull socks over pants. Bug spray. And try to stay out of the super thick stuff.

I used know some guys who frequently had to work in heavy brush/vegetation that strapped a flea/tick collar around their ankles. (outside of pants) Never tried it myself but they swore by the tick collars.

Sulphur powder dusted on your waistline and pants leg works great. It keeps the chiggers off to. Just put the sulphur powder in an old sock and dab the sock around your waistline, pants legs, and shirt sleeves. REPEL insect repellent works great to. Just don't get the REPEL on your bait or line. If you get insecticide on your hands then wash them with soap and water before you bait your hook or tie on a lure. Fish like the taste of DEET about as much as Mohamed likes the taste of pork.

thumb Ditto: (bluesea112. comment) This has always worked for me and the Sulphur can be washed from the clothing easily and leaves no stains.
