Damminix® Tick Tubes®
Lyme Disease is spread by ticks that feed on mice. Damminix® Tick Tubes® rely on the natural nesting instincts of mice to collect materials to build their nests. Tick Tubes are made of biodegradable cardboard tubes filled with permethrin treated cotton balls, that kills ticks, while mice and other mammals and birds are unharmed.
Permethrin is a synthetic form of the naturally occurring pesticide, pyrethrum, an extract from flower heads of the chrysanthemum. Permethrin is highly neuro-toxic to ticks.
The biodegradable cardboard tubes are placed in brush and flower beds (not on lawns because mice do not make their burrows on lawns). The mice find the tubes and collect the cotton for their nests. The pesticide on the cotton gets on the fur of the mouse, and is brought into the burrow. The mouse is transformed into a very efficient tick killer.
Damminix® Tick Tubes® provide an environmentally friendly, safe and easy to use solution to target and kill ticks. EPA approved and made in the USA.
6 tubes treats 1/8 acre of mouse habitat (Approx. 1/2 to 1 acre)
