Ticks- Habitat is wooded areas, tall grass or brush, the edges where woods and lawn meet, in the leaf litter, under ground-cover plants, and around stone walls and woodpiles where small mammals live.

Some ticks spread bacteria that cause illnesses, including Lyme disease.. In general, to spread Lyme disease a tick needs to be attached to a person's skin for at least 36 hours. 

You develop flu-like signs and symptoms. Fever, chills, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and a headache may accompany the rash.

Natural predators are ants, spiders and birds.  Opossums are one of the top predators for ticks and kill more than 90 percent of the ticks they encounter.

Natural Tick Repellents include essential oil-based products made with plant compounds such as from rosemary, cedar, lemongrass, peppermint, citronella and geranium are believed to be particularly noxious to ticks.  Also, Ticks do not like Garlic, sage, mint, lavender, rosemary and marigolds are some familiar effective tick-repelling plants and they are great to use in landscaping borders around decks, walkways, pet runs, patios.

 

Diatomaceous Earth

Three-In-One Solution – For insect, ammonia and moisture control.   Benefits listed below:

  • INSECT CONTROL used in Farm Grain Dryers and Gardens. When the insect comes in contact with shells that have been ground to sharp granules, it is similar to fine, broken glass; it scratches the insect and eventually it dehydrates and dies. Controls a range of soft-bodied pests including ants, aphids, root maggots, caterpillars, cutworms, earwigs, fleas, potato beetle larvae and silverfish. Pests cannot develop resistance to DE. 

In Gardens - Apply around the base of a plant or paths of ants and/or beetles.

When used in Feed, there is a purer form of the product named Star Lake.

  • MOISTURE CONTROL – it absorbs its own weight in moisture, inhibiting the growth of bacteria safely and naturally.
  • AMMONIA CONTROL – Product known as Barn Fresh has a low pH level that ties up and neutralizes harmful ammonia creating a safer, healthier environment for all types of animals.  Another coarser product is Stall Dry.
