Spring is here and so are the ticks. We all know ticks are dangerous Lyme disease spreaders and that they are prevalent in Upstate NY. But what can homeowners do to reduce the tick population on their property?
We recommend the Tick Box Tick Control System. The Tick Box is a small, plastic box which contains an insecticide that is effective against ticks and bait that is attractive to mice and chipmunks. The bait will attract rodents living on and around your property to the Tick Box. As the rodent moves through the Tick Box, it will pass under a small applicator wick containing a low-dose insecticide. The wick will lightly brush its head or shoulders, applying traces of the insecticide. The insecticide won’t harm the rodent or any other animal that might touch or eat them, but it will kill the ticks that the rodents are carrying.
How effective is it? In field trials, the Tick Box Tick Control System reduced tick populations by as much as 88% after just one year.
How many do you need? We’ll assess your property to determine the proper number of Tick Boxes to protect it. Tick Boxes will be placed in the “tick zone” which is between landscaping and the woods where ticks and rodents are abundant.
