Many people think of deer as carrying the ticks that spread Lyme disease. While this is true, it’s usually mice that carry these same ticks into neighborhoods where deer are never seen. Deer ticks feed on mice in the spring and fall.
By simply adding our biodegradable tick tubes to your all natural or barrier spray service, you can greatly reduce exposure to disease-carrying deer ticks.Our tick tubes are cardboard tubes filled with cotton balls which are treated with permethrin. While permethrin doesn’t hurt mice or other mammals, it does kill the ticks. Mice collect the cotton from the tubes to build their nests. As they crawl into the tubes and rub against the cotton, the permethrin rubs onto their fur, eliminating the ticks.It’s an environmentally friendly, easy and powerful way to keep deer ticks from spreading disease to you and your family.
