Did you know... Most people remove attached ticks incorrectly, which can have serious consequences for the person or pet bitten.

3 Step Guide




Step 1
Protect Yourself and Pets

Ticks are scary but with Cedarcide they’re easy to avoid. To protect yourself, just apply Cedarcide Original Bug Spray to your clothing and skin before outdoor activities, and reapply as needed.

For dogs, mist their coat with Cedarcide Original and massage it down to their skin. Then use your hands to apply to their face. Reapply every 1–3 days. For cats, use your hands and reapply weekly or more often as needed.

Step 2
Spray Your Yard

It’s simple: If ticks are in your lawn, you’re going to experience more bites, so let’s get them out of there. Start by spraying your entire yard with Cedarcide Outdoor Bug Control twice, two weeks apart, and then just monthly after that. For added repellency, spread Cedarcide Granules throughout your lawn every 4–6 weeks. It’s that easy!

Step 3
Prevent Ticks from Coming Back

Drier lawns experience fewer ticks, so start by checking for and fixing issues like leaky hoses and clogged drainage areas. Removing clutter and lawn upkeep are also crucial, so mow and trim shrubbery as needed and limit tick hiding spots like wood piles and non-cedar mulch.

Lastly, deter wild animals, which commonly drop ticks in our yards, by tightly sealing trash cans and installing fencing if necessary.
