You hope to safeguard against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Prospect yard saturated with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you live in Prospect. 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 numbers are rising in Prospect, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Balmy winters and a large deer herd (which carries ticks) are often blamed. The risk of Lyme disease, transmitted by the pinhead-size deer tick, has grown with it.
Don’t postpone until you locate a tick crawling on your (or someone else’s) body to respond. 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 outdoors with 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 affect bees, butterflies or earthworms.
It does, however, repel 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 are infected with Lyme disease annually. If you have ticks in your yard in Prospect, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are aware about the prospect, contact The Mosquito Guy.
