How to get rid of ticks

CUT YOUR GRASS

CUT YOUR GRASS

DO IT REGULARLY

That is the secret.

Ticks are sneaky insects

The sneaky blood thirsty wood tick or dog tick and other types of tick hang out in tall grasses and shrubs waiting for you or your dog or cat to pass close by. Then they grab on for a ride and crawl to a warm moist place likely your private areas on your body to suck your blood. Not a good thing because some like deer ticks transmit Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted fever.

PREVENTION ALTERNATIVES:

  • Do the organic thing. We repeat…Keep your lawn and grasses short. That is the key.
  • Or get a guinea fowl or chickens… they are the worse enemy of a tick. They will clean a field of every tick in just a few days.
  • Spray areas with an insecticide with DEET or a similar chemical that is rated for tick.
  • It is reported that a tick and garlic don’t mix and that the tick will move from a garlic treated area>>>to your neighbor’s yard.
  • Hire a exterminator to use a controlled chemical like Damminix that impacts their life cycle.
