Spraying your yard provides a false sense of security.  Instead consider products that treat the fur of mice.

I have been using the tick tubes for many years in the yard and since then I have not had a single tick. And that, despite many pets in the neighborhood. A very excellent product.


Excellent, from delivery to the results. We put 12 tick tubes on our 800 sqm yard and saw a prominent tick drop after approx. 14 days. After 4 weeks we were tick free.

We’ve been absolutely thrilled and confident with the system. We will use tick tubes each season.


We are completely satisfied. Since we have been using the tick tubes in the yard, no tick has bitten us anymore. At first it was hard for me to believe it, but many years of experience speaks for itself. Not only can you protect yourself against ticks, but your children and grandchildren will also thank you.
