Ticks usually go for your lower body and work their way up to a constricted area on your body such as your waist band. If you are an outdoorsman, you can prevent tick encounters by wearing long socks and long pull your socks over your long pant legs. By doing this you leave your lower body almost completely secure, but still make sure that you check yourself for ticks after any outdoor adventure.
