DIY Tick tubes can help control tick population
By Marie Freeman
Since the infestation in Metcalfe County of the Asian tick I thought it might be a good time to show how to make tick tubes again, or to purchase. In Kentucky, the best time is the end of July and the middle of April to stop the cycle.
I have been doing this now for over a year and I am seeing results. I believe just like wearing mask if we all did this we might cut the tick population way down. It's a simple process. The average is possibly up to 100 ticks every 10 feet. To kill that many with broadcast spray would require a lot of spray and a lot of other insects being affected. (Remember to keep your cats away from this until it's dry.) In the east where this was developed there seeing a 70% decrease in ticks around their home.
This link shows the process: organicdailypost.com/make-tick-tubes, or you can go on YouTube, where there's all kinds of videos showing how to do it. Tick tubes can also be purchased commercially.
