Tick Repellent

CEDAR OIL INSECT REPELLENT

CEDAR OIL IS ALL NATURAL, CONTAINS NO CHEMICALS AND IS SAFE FOR PEOPLE, DOGS & ENVIRONMENT

The world is fast becoming aware of the dangers that pesticides have caused to our health, animals, foods and environment. Children especially are very sensitive to toxic pesticide exposure at home and school as it affects their neurological, respiratory, and immune systems. The EPA, the National Academy of Sciences, and the American Public Health Association have all voiced their concerns about the dangers that these chemicals pose to our children.

 

CEDAR OIL REPELS TICKS, MOSQUITOES, FLEAS, GNATS, LICE, MITES, HORSEFLIES, ETC.

Cedar Oil is a natural insect repellent. When delivered in small amounts the aroma overwhelms most insects. The lingering aroma of Cedar Oil is a pheromone interruption agent that impairs the mental capacity of non-beneficial insects; it has no effect on beneficial insects such as lady bugs, honey bees, earth worms, and butterflies.

It dehydrates the eggs and exoskeleton of larvae thus interrupting the egg laying cycle. 3.) It creates a barrier of re-entry deterring insects migrating from other areas into your area of concern. Perpetual egg layers are immediately controlled because of this barrier. If the adults don’t enter the treated area, then they won’t lay eggs.

Why use tick tubes?

“Mother ticks cannot pass B. burgdorferi (lyme disease) on to the 2,000 eggs they lay in the spring. Thus, when ticks hatch into larvae in the summer, they are un-infected. To move on to the next stage of life, a tick larva must find a source of blood for its first meal. The larva’s preferred meal at this stage comes from a common rodent called the white-footed mouse(Peromyscus leucopus), but it may also feed on other small mammals or birds. If the animal on which a larva feeds is infected with B. burgdorferi, the larva can become infected as well and will be able to transmit the disease to animals that it bites in the future. An important note is that humans and other large mammals are not considered carriers of B. burgdorferi like certain small animals. Levels of bacteria sufficient to infect ticks cannot be found in human or deer blood. Thus, since the tick cannot infect its eggs with B. burgdorferi, the bacteria depend on small animals like the white-footed mouse to act as reservoirs of the disease. It is only from these carriers that the disease can be picked up and spread by the tick vector.”

Mice Aren’t Nice, They Help Transmit Lyme Disease

Tick tubes are cardboard tubes filled with cotton soaked in permethrin. Mice, which ticks love to feed on, crawl into the tubes and take pieces of the cotton to use in their nests. Permethrin is deadly to ticks. The tubes must be placed in areas where mice travel…in dense, dark brush, behind bushes, along foundations, etc.
