You want to guard against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Stonebank yard coated with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you reside in Stonebank. 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 rising in Stonebank, 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 grown with it.
Don’t postpone until you find 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 outside among 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, ward off ticks … which gives you peace of mind as your children and pets play outside in a chemical-free environment.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 300,000 Americans are infected with Lyme disease each year. If you have ticks in your yard in Stonebank, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are worried about the possibility, contact The Mosquito Guy.
