It is time to think about getting back into the yard to do some gardening, but its also time to think about ticks! Below is a link to a website that will show you how to make "DIY Tick Tubes" and why you should make them. As the website explains, "When ticks first hatch, they’re too small to latch on to deer, humans and other large animals, so they usually latch onto mice. A single mouse may play host to 100 ticks! If you’re serious about eliminating the ticks on your property, it’s smart to go after them at this phase, and that means finding a way to kill the ticks while they’re still on the mice. An easy way to do that is with tick tubes". The website has a wonderful video tutorial of the process.
