You hope to protect against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Pewaukee yard doused with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you live in Pewaukee. 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 mounting in Pewaukee, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Balmy winters and a sizable deer herd (which carries ticks) are often blamed. The danger of Lyme disease, borne by the pinhead-size deer tick, has increased with it.
Don’t delay until you find a tick crawling on your (or someone else’s) body to respond. Ticks are most rampant from late spring to mid-summer, and again in fall - in other words, the months when we’re most likely to be outside amidst 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 made from peanuts. The organic, non-toxic treatment dries clear and doesn’t hurt bees, butterflies or earthworms.
It does, however, deter ticks … which gives you peace of mind as your children and pets play outside amid a chemical-free environment.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 300,000 Americans contract Lyme disease each year. If you have ticks in your yard in Pewaukee, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are concerned about the prospect, contact The Mosquito Guy.
