You want to protect against ticks (and Lyme disease). You don’t want your Vernon yard saturated with chemicals.
You’re in luck, if you reside in Vernon. 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 populations are heading up in Vernon, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Balmy winters and a large deer herd (which carries ticks) are often blamed. The menace 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 amidst 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, deter ticks … which gives you peace of mind as your children and pets play outside amid 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 Vernon, Wisconsin or northern Illinois or are concerned about the prospect, contact The Mosquito Guy.
