How To Get Rid Of Ticks: 3 Easy Steps

Get rid of ticks
Cedar Oil All Natural Solutions

Bugs don’t get much scarier than ticks. The truth is almost no bug bite can change the course of your life the way a tick’s can. In other words, if you venture outdoors often, have a family, or pets, you need to be extra careful to avoid tick bites and ensure these blood-sucking arachnids are nowhere near home. Here’s how to prevent, repel, and get rid of Ticks naturally in just 3 easy steps.


Step 1: Prevent Dangerous Tick Bites

Did you know many tick bites originate, not in wooded areas, but in our own lawns, or during common activities like dog walks?

It’s for this reason that you, your family and pets need to wear an effective yet safe tick repellent when venturing outdoors, whether camping and hiking, or simply working or playing in your own yard with your family.

Wearing a tick repellent is crucial for two main reasons. First, it helps prevent painful and in some cases life-threatening tick bites. Second, it helps prevent you from accidentally introducing ticks into your lawn or home, exposing your loved ones to dangerous ticks.

Before outside fun like walks, hikes, dog walks, BBQs, camping, and outdoor entertaining, simply apply DG’s non-toxic Bug Off Cedar Oil Personal and Pet Spray to you, your family, and pets to kill and repel, not only ticks, but also mosquitoes, fleas, ants, mites, bed bugs, and other biting or damaging pests. For best results, reapply to people every 5-7 hours or after getting wet, and reapply to pets every other day or more often as needed. No more bug bites. No poisonous chemicals. It’s that easy!

Pro Tip: In addition to preventing tick bites, DG’s Personal and Pet Cedar Oil Spray can also be used indoors to kill and repel bugs around the house without resorting to dangerous pesticides.



Step 2: Tick-Proof Your Lawn

By taking a few simple preventative steps and keeping up with lawn care, you can dramatically reduce the chances of experiencing ticks in your yard. Without moisture to drink, sources of food like wild animals, and hiding spots to breed, ticks will have little interest in staying in your lawn. Here are some essential tips for tick-proofing your lawn:

  • Lawns with excess moisture are very attractive to ticks, so make sure to remove or repair all sources of unnecessary moisture, including leaky plumbing, sprinklers & hoses, clogged drainage areas, and items that collect rainwater, such as unused furniture and equipment.
  • Practice regular lawn maintenance, including keeping your grass and shrubbery short and trimmed. Mow, weed eat, and trim as needed. Ticks love hiding out in lawn clippings, so make sure to bag those, too.
  • Remove organic clutter like wood piles, brush, leaves, and any mulch not made from cedarwood, these are a favorite hideout for ticks. 

Wildlife like raccoons and deer commonly drop ticks into our yards. Here are some natural ways to help keep tick-carrying pests off your property

  • Especially if you live in a wooded area, we strongly suggest installing fencing, at least around the most used areas of your lawn.
  • If you already have fencing, make sure to check it periodically for holes and other damage animals could use to gain entrance.
    Garbage is a big attractant for wild animals. Firmly secure any trash cans, recycling bins, or compost piles you have outside to help avoid unwelcome guests. 
  • Avoid installing plants known to attract wild animals, like roses, beans, tulips, peas, corn, apples, etc. If you’ve already planted some of these, consider installing some barrier to keep wildlife out, like chicken wire.

Step 3:Kill & Repel

Apart from ensuring you, your family, and pets are protected from dangerous bites, removing ticks from your yard and keeping them away is your top priority.

Don’t worry, killing & repelling ticks in all life stages—egg, larva, nymph, and adult—is quick, safe, and easy with DG’s plant-based Lawn and Kennel Concentrate.

Start by treating your entire yard with non-toxic, pet-safe 
Lawn and Kennel Concentrate twice about two weeks apart. Make sure to spray your front, back, and side yards, including shrubbery, small trees, and bases of larger trees. After those first two treatments, you can proceed to monthly applications. Can use more often if needed for heavier bug populations.

Because ticks can survive winter conditions, they tend to be a problem all year long. For this reason, we strongly urge you to continue monthly applications throughout the entire year. 

Doing this will also save you a bunch of time, money, and headache when things start to warm back up and ticks, along with mosquitoes, fleas, ants, chiggers and more, become an even larger problem again.

Not So Fun Fact: Ticks can survive all winter long, even in freezing temperatures

For added repellency, broadcast Cedar Granules throughout your lawn or at least in those areas where you and your family spend the most time. Reapply Cedar Granules every 6 weeks.

How To Stop A Flea Infestation… Naturally!

What started as a few black dots skipping through your pet’s fur has become a full-blown pest population taking over your home.

You know you have options: harsh sprays, bug bombs, an exterminator – but you’re worried that the same chemicals that will annihilate your flea population will also cause harm to your family and your pets.

Not only can you stop a flea infestation naturally, but also, you can keep bugs out of your home for good using products that are completely safe for humans and domestic animals.

Here’s how you can stop a flea infestation naturally:

Step #1: Know Your Enemy

By now, you’ve probably spotted the tiny black adult fleas crawling through your pet’s fur. As you reach for them, they can hop up to 4 feet in the air. These adult fleas make up fewer than 5 percent of the flea population.

Adult, female fleas lay up to 40 eggs per day, usually on your pet. Everywhere your pet goes, flea eggs fall. They’re just barely visible, tiny white specks, making up 50 percent of the population. You might not notice them resting in your carpet, on your pet’s bed, and around your home.

Larvae hatch from the eggs two days to two weeks after they are laid. Adult fleas suck blood from your pet and pass it in the form of dark, dusty “flea dirt,” which looks like black pepper sprinkled throughout your pet’s fur. It’s really your pet’s blood, predigested by adult fleas and consumed by flea larvae as their first meal.

Flea larvae form cocoons within 5-20 days of hatching. Cocoons make up 10 percent of the population. They are sticky, and may rest below the surface of your carpet – they’re not easily vacuumed out. They emerge when they sense the presence of a host, where they feast and lay eggs of their own.

What does this all mean? It means that fleas are the least of your worries. Their offspring are everywhere in your environment, so even if you get rid of fleas, within a few weeks their larvae hatch and start the life cycle again. That’s why you need to take this 5-step approach to getting rid of fleas for good.

The lifecycle of the #flea. It can be anywhere from a few weeks to a few months - meaning your infestation can come back even when the adult fleas have vanished. You need to destroy fleas at every life stage to get rid of them for good. For natural, safe, affordable solutions, check out DGCedaroil.com.

Step #2: Treat Your Family

Before treating your home, treat yourself and your family members to stop the biting in the meantime.

You can use our all-natural cedar oil personal and pet spray to topically treat both humans and animals. This formula also soothes itchiness and irritation due to existing flea bites. It’s safe to spray on your skin, bedding and clothes, and on dogs and cats.

Step #3: Evict The Fleas

Now, it’s time to kick the fleas out of your home. Our indoor cedar oil formula destroys your indoor infestation in multiple ways.

The silica content corrodes the flea’s exoskeleton. This makes them vulnerable to cedar oil’s dehydrating properties. The cedar oil also makes it difficult for fleas of all life stages to breathe.

Have you ever seen a trail of ants marching across your floor? That’s the power pheromones in action. Ants, fleas and many other pests follow the scents of each other’s pheromones to feed, mate and conduct other life-sustaining activities. Cedar oil covers the pheromone scent, leaving these pests too disoriented to do anything.

Those that don’t come in direct contact are repelled by the scent, and quickly flee your home. Best of all, unlike many chemical treatments, fleas do not develop resistance to natural cedar oil solutions.

Spray every area of your home. It’s safe for virtually all surfaces, won’t stain or discolor wood or fabrics. Repeat as needed.

Vacuuming will remove many of the eggs and cocoons in your carpets. Just be sure to avoid emptying or discarding the bag contents indoors.

Step #4: Spray Outdoors

Unable to sustain life in your treated home, some fleas may remain outdoors. Spray the perimeter of your home, plus any dog runs, kennels, gardens or sheds.

For fast application, use Nature’s Defender. The bottle is equipped with a convenient hose end sprayer so you can easily treat your entire yard. This formula also keeps your yard free of mosquitoes, mites, grubs, ants, flies, and many other pests – without harming your lawn or garden.

Do not use the indoor formula on your lawn. It can be harmful to plants, and shouldn’t be diluted with water.

Step #5: Follow Up

Spray your pets monthly or after baths, and before walks in fields and wooded areas. Treating your pet regularly is often sufficient to keep a flea infestation from recurring. Treat the indoor areas as needed, and outdoor areas after rainstorms.

Flea infestations are the most common from Spring to Fall, because they thrive when it’s warm out. However, they can also move into your warm, toasty home during the winter. Keep up with flea prevention year-round, you can keep your home pest-free for good.

DG Cedar Oil offers an overall approach to pest control management in your home. The goal is to insure pests are kept in check before they become a major problem for your family.

To achieve a pest-free environment, the first order of business is to outline the areas in and around your home that need protection. These areas typically include indoor perimeters (baseboards, window frames, etc.). Carpets, furniture, cabinets and closets are also some other indoor considerations. You also need to consider your outdoor areas (front and back yards, patios, garage areas, etc.).

This particularly applies to pet owners. Pets especially need to be considered in any such insect control planning. We know that when it comes to fleas, ticks, mites and other pet related infestations, things can get quickly out of hand!
