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 tube (cardboard or PVC) and cotton treated with a Chrysanthemum Extract that is highly toxic to ticks. Tick-B-Gone uses the mice to carry away the treated cotton 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 or the mouse that has rolled around on the cotton, the chrysanthemum solution 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 93.6% reduction in tick population! NINETY THREE 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, you *might* feel a tingling sensation. We have this packaged so that your hands should never come into contact with the cotton. 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.
Refill kits are used with PVC tubes. Keep using the same tubes, just refill and place for spring and fall application.
- Ticks become infected when they get their blood meal from mice that are carrying the bacteria. The ticks then go on to bite and infect humans and animals.
- The use of this product showed that over the 8 year study period, there was 80% tick population reduction in the first year; 100% tick population reduction in the third year; and an average of 93.6% tick population reduction over the entire 8 years.
- The extract we use is highly toxic to ticks and some other small insects. It has low toxicity to people, pets and mice. A toddler would need to ingest a pound of treated material before there would be risk of toxicity. (That's a lot of cotton to eat!!)
- The extract is derived from the dried flower heads of the Chrysanthemum plant. It naturally contains pyrethrin, which is a more refined extract than pyrethrum.
