You want to guard against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Calhoun yard doused with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you reside in Calhoun. The Mosquito Guy offers a green, non-toxic tick repellent yard treatment. This organic insecticide will keep you and your family safe from the threat of ticks and Lyme disease for up to 30 days.
Tick numbers are growing in Calhoun, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Mild winters and a large deer herd (which carries ticks) are often cited. The threat of Lyme disease, transmitted by the pinhead-size deer tick, has increased at the same time.
Don’t wait until you identify a tick crawling on your (or someone else’s) body to respond. Ticks are most prevalent 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 application 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 outdoors amidst a chemical-free environment.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 300,000 Americans contract Lyme disease annually. If you have ticks in your yard in Calhoun, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are aware about the possibility, contact The Mosquito Guy.
