You hope to safeguard against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Sussex yard doused with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you live in Sussex. The Mosquito Guy offers a safe, 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 numbers are heading up in Sussex, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Balmy winters and a sizable deer herd (which carries ticks) are often cited. The danger of Lyme disease, carried by the pinhead-size deer tick, has increased with it.
Don’t wait until you locate a tick crawling on your (or someone else’s) body to take action. 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 whose main ingredient is from peanuts. The organic, non-toxic treatment dries clear and doesn’t affect bees, butterflies or earthworms.
It does, however, ward off 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 each year. If you have ticks in your yard in Sussex, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are concerned about the possibility, contact The Mosquito Guy.
