You want to guard against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Utica yard doused with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you reside in Utica. The Mosquito Guy provides 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 populations are heading up in Utica, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Warm 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 mounted at the same time.
Don’t postpone until you spot a tick crawling on your (or someone else’s) body to take action. 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 outdoors 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, fend off 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 are infected with Lyme disease each year. If you have ticks in your yard in Utica, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are aware about the risk, contact The Mosquito Guy.
