The Tick Ball

Health & Wellness

The Tick Ball is a biodegradable, eco-friendly approach in the fight against Lyme disease and ticks. The Tick Ball is made of molded pulp and contains treated cotton that mice gather and incorporate into their nests. Any ticks that are or become attached to the mouse, die when they comes in contact with this cotton. Ticks are born disease free but get diseases like Lyme disease when they bite the mouse. The Tick Ball fights Lyme disease at the source...the mouse!
