You hope to safeguard against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Lake Five yard doused with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you reside in Lake Five. The Mosquito Guy offers a green, non-toxic tick repellent yard treatment. This organic insecticide will keep you and your family protected from the threat of ticks and Lyme disease for up to 30 days.
Tick populations are increasing in Lake Five, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Mild winters and a sizable deer herd (which carries ticks) are often blamed. The threat of Lyme disease, transmitted by the pinhead-size deer tick, has increased at the same time.
Don’t postpone until you identify a tick crawling on your (or someone else’s) body to take action. Ticks are most abundant from late spring to mid-summer, and again in fall - in other words, the months when we’re most likely to be outside with them.
The Mosquito Guy’s green tick repellent formula is made 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 affect bees, butterflies or earthworms.
It does, however, deter ticks … which gives you peace of mind as your children and pets play outside amidst 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 Lake Five, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are bothered about the risk, contact The Mosquito Guy.
