NATURAL TICK REPELLENT

Natural Tick Repellent

After you've enjoyed a nice camping trip, you might bring home some unwelcome pests. Ticks are ectoparasites and they latch onto your skin and feed off your blood. Your pets aren't immune either, and are even more likely to pick up ticks after spending time outside. If you live in a humid area, close to a river, wooded area, or wildlife live nearby, then you might be more likely to have a tick problem. Any dead foliage or moist areas in your yard make a nice home for ticks. This makes it easier for pets, children, or you to be carriers for them into the house. It's urgent to exterminate them before they multiply in your home and cause health problems. Follow our step-by-step instructions to ensure that your home stays tick-free.

How-To Instructions

1

Grab Everything You Need

Make sure you have all the right equipment for the job. You can select one of our diatomaceous earth products. There is no wrong way to apply diatomaceous earth; it just needs to come into contact with the insect to work.

2

Clean Your Home

For a more effective treatment, it's best to clean your house before applying diatomaceous earth liberally. Ticks can hide in places for long periods of time. So vacuuming regularly is especially important because you may pick up some ticks in the cleaning process and prevent them from returning. Be sure to move around appliances and furniture and clean out rugs.

3

Where to Apply

Apply dust to areas like clothing, carpet, window sills, or any other cracks where ticks could infest. It may be best to remove pets during the cleaning process in case they are carrying most of the ticks. This way, you can treat your home and your pets separately, while keeping the ticks from spreading.

4

Remove Ticks from Your Pet

Now that you've applied diatomaceous earth to your home, it's time to tackle your pet. Grab some tweezers and look for ticks everywhere including between the toes, inside the ears, and in the armpits. Pull the ticks out and place them in a plastic bag and seal it shut, be carefull not to leave the head behind. If a tick does not come off easily with the tweezers, generously powder the tick and surrounding area with diatomaceous earth and give it time to take effect. Keep on powdering the tick till it shrivels up and either falls off or is easy to remove.  If you think a tick has given your pet a disease, keep one to take to the vet for identification. The best method is direct removal with tweezers but be sure not to kill the tick in the process without removing head. If the head remains behind your pet will have a good chance of contracting a disease. 

5

When to Reapply

Diatomaceous earth needs to be dry to be effective. If diatomaceous earth gets wet, it will resume working once it has dried out. If it has washed away, then you need to apply it again. Apply diatomaceous earth to your pet's surroundings every time it ventures out into tick territory.

6

Repeat as Necessary

DE can be vacuumed or wiped up once the ticks have been exterminated. Do everything again 30 to 40 days after your initial application. This is when eggs will hatch if there are any left in your house. Repeat one more time after your second application.


Helpful Tips and Warnings

    • If you need additional help, a toothbrush is a great tool for working the diatomaceous earth into small areas.
  • If you have breathing problems like asthma you may want to use a dust mask when spreading large amounts of diatomaceous earth dry.
