You hope to guard against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Edgewood yard saturated with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you live in Edgewood. The Mosquito Guy offers 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 populations are rising in Edgewood, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Warm winters and a large deer herd (which carries ticks) are often cited. The menace of Lyme disease, transmitted by the pinhead-size deer tick, has increased with it.
Don’t postpone until you find a tick crawling on your (or someone else’s) body to respond. Ticks are most widespread from late spring to mid-summer, and again in fall - in other words, the months when we’re most likely to be outside 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 made from peanuts. The organic, non-toxic treatment dries clear and doesn’t hurt bees, butterflies or earthworms.
It does, however, ward off 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 contract Lyme disease every year. If you have ticks in your yard in Edgewood, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are aware about the risk, contact The Mosquito Guy.
