Ranger Ready is fittingly based in Connecticut, where tick-borne illnesses like Lyme disease are a constant concern among outdoor enthusiasts. It partners with Global Lyme Alliance, a leading non-profit organization dedicated to conquering Lyme and other tick-borne diseases through research, education, and awareness.

Why are we so excited about partnering with Ranger Ready?

  • Ranger Ready sprays use the active ingredient, Picaridin, a synthetic compound derived from the natural compound piperine, found in the group of plants used to produce black pepper. It protects against ticks and mosquitoes for 12 hours and against flies, gnats, and chiggers for more than eight hours.
  • Ranger Ready is safe. It contains no DEET, which can be corrosive and has been shown to damage plastic gear if you use it and then handle plastic, like water buckets and grooming tools.
  • And here’s the most exciting point: You can use Ranger Ready on yourself and your horses. Same product, same bottle, same effectiveness.

We at Cayuse Communications met Ranger Ready at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last year and eagerly broached the need for effective tick deterrents for horses and their owners. After several phone and email conversations, Ranger Ready developed a new 24-ounce bottle, inspired by us!

Check out purchase options here. The jumbo bottle comes in a fragrance-free option, but we also like their pleasant, unobtrusive scents, available in the smaller sizes. Choose the trigger spray bottles here.
