You hope to safeguard against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Colgate yard doused with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you reside in Colgate. The Mosquito Guy provides a green, non-toxic tick repellent yard treatment. This organic insecticide will keep you and your loved ones protected from the threat of ticks and Lyme disease for up to 30 days.
Tick numbers are rising in Colgate, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Balmy winters and a sizable deer herd (which carries ticks) are often blamed. The peril of Lyme disease, borne by the pinhead-size deer tick, has increased simultaneously.
Don’t postpone until you spot a tick crawling on your (or someone else’s) body to respond. Ticks are most numerous from late spring to mid-summer, and again in fall - in other words, the months when we’re most likely to be outdoors among them.
The Mosquito Guy’s green tick repellent formula is comprised of almost half natural cedar oil. Its other active ingredient is phenethyl propionate, a natural pesticide whose main ingredient is from peanuts. The organic, non-toxic treatment dries clear and doesn’t hurt bees, butterflies or earthworms.
It does, however, prevent ticks … which gives you peace of mind as your children and pets play outside in a chemical-free environment.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 300,000 Americans are infected with Lyme disease each year. If you have ticks in your yard in Colgate, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are concerned about the risk, contact The Mosquito Guy.
