Tick-B-Gone Property Treatment
Treat your yard to reduce the population of disease carrying ticks! We have purposely priced Tick-B-Gone significantly lower than other manufacturers of similar products because we WANT to reduce the tick population. We WANT these in every yard!! Protect your family and your pets safely! These are typically placed in the early spring and early fall when mice are gathering nesting materials.
This item consists of a cardboard tube and cotton balls treated with a Chrysanthemum Extract that is highly toxic to ticks. Tick-B-Gone uses the mice to carry away the treated cotton balls to their nesting area. (We know that the mice are the most common carriers of ticks.) When the ticks come into contact with the treated cotton balls, the solution on the cotton balls causes the nervous system of the tick to become overwhelmed and they die.
There have been several studies done on this process, the results have been extremely encouraging. Over an 8 year period, one such study showed an average of 90% reduction in tick population! NINETY PERCENT!
The solution we've used is highly toxic to ticks (and some other insects) but a significantly lower toxicity to other mammals, birds and humans. If you handle the treated cotton balls, you *might* feel a tingling sensation. We have this packaged so that your hands should never come into contact with the cotton balls. We're seeing this solution being used in more and more flea and tick control products. It's also being used in outdoor bug sprays. Generally, outdoor cats and dogs will ignore the Tick-B-Gone. When properly deployed they are covered with leaf or grass litter, so you can't see them once they are placed. (So children shouldn't be able to locate them unless you've shown them the location.) We do take elaborate steps to include all of the safety information as part of the labeling.
These don't expire so if you have a small yard don't worry, You can use 2-3 tubes and save the others for your next deployment.
6 tubes will treat a 1/2 - 1 acre lot. 24 tubes are recommended for 2 - 3 acre treatment.
Package qty: 6 Tubes
Cardboard tubes are biodegradable and are meant to be left out until they are gone.
PVC tubes are meant to be refilled in spring and fall. We will have refill kits available for fall application.
