Do you have anything organic for tick control? I’ve used several tick sprays before that have worked well but this year I’d like to try something organic.
Tick control can be done with several organic products that work well. The key to tick control is to first get good coverage in the areas which are most active. This is typically where low lying shrubs are growing adjacent to pathways or trails where people or animals are active. Ticks will congregate in such areas and hope to attach themselves to passerbys on the move.
To protect such areas from tick infestations, you should first apply some ECO EXEMPT GRANULES to such areas and then follow up with a spraying of TICK KILLER RTS. The Exempt Granules use clove, thyme and wintergreen oils for an active and are very safe compared to traditional lawn granules. The spray comes with it’s own hose end sprayer so you only need to hook it to the garden hose to get to work; there is no mixing or mess. Tick Killer is also NOP certified as organic so it’s approved for use in organic gardening. This means it’s very safe for use around the house and yard.
Since organic products don’t last long, you’ll probably need to treat more frequently. Expect to do 2-3 treatments a month till the cycle is broken.
