Deer carry the tick Ixodes scapularis also known as blacklegged ticks. They are most often known simply as deer ticks because their favorite feeding spot is on white-tailed deer. Unfortunately, they also feed on other large mammals as hosts, including people. Most importantly, the deer tick is the carrier of Lyme Disease and that means any place where deer travel (like your back yard) can become a reservoir for the deer tick – possibly infecting your dog or you!
That’s why we’re working with Timber Hill’s Ranch and other deer experts to trial Repellion in a deer cookie. Not only can you control ticks, but you’ll see deer with bigger antler growth.
We’re also working on a natural endectocide for deer and other wildlife to help eliminate parasite loads.
