Ticks are bad, bad, bad. Vectors of many diseases, which I have gotten twice.
You can, of course, get ticks from branches. But for the most part they will get you from below, on your socks and pants.
The OBS won't help you there. You need the OBP.
Having been twice bit and hospitalized, I now use long pants tucked in socks, recently the permethrin treated kind, when bush hogging and logging in my back 10 acres.
