THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

Protecting your property

  It is that time of year again to start thinking about protecting your property and family. The following article from Jill Auerbach is a very good start to a nice memorable summer.
 
Dear Friends and Associates,
 
Please consider sharing this with others. Bad enough getting Lyme or Tickborne disease once, but you can be re infected. This is why it is critically important to avoid, and protect yourselves, your family, pets and wildlife as well. It's unfortunate that more than 30 years have passed and this is all we have; protect and prevent!
 
I haven't seen this before nor tried it, but it seems a simple and inexpensive way to reduce the tick population by killing ticks on their prime reservoir the mouse, who would use the impregnated cotton balls to build their nest.  Some studies have shown commercially produced tubes like this called Damminex to be highly effective. Other tests, not as effective. Perhaps the natural nesting materials available to the mice make a difference? The CDC currently has a study with Damminex. Here is a link to information about the commercially available ones: http://www.ticktubes.com/works.html
 
2. I strongly recommend you take a look at Tom Mather, PhD, University of RI, Tick Encounter information on prevention and other topics: http://www.tickencounter.org/
Dr Mather shares a wealth of information that has been tested! Many claims are made about some products that simply do not hold up to testing and research done by him and others.
This is about one of the best and most clearly explained sites available to us.
It includes:
 - How to make your clothes tick repellent.
 - Treat your yard with a perimeter spray.
 - How to remove a tick, etc.
