RoundUp Adding to the Rise of Tick-Borne Diseases

Pesticides-Spray

Did you know that RoundUp is adding to the extreme rise in ticks?

No one wants weeds – but Round Up is NOT the answer!

But I’ll bet it will surprise you to learn that the blanketed use of Round Up is actually adding to the widespread epidemic of tick-borne diseases.

Sierra Club research and findings:

The common Western Fence Lizard eats ticks by the millions! Wherever the lizards abound, the population of disease-carrying ticks are low. Fewer lizards result in more disease carrying ticks.

Not only do these lizards eat ticks – but when ticks bite the lizards – the blood from the lizard actually eliminates the Lyme disease in the tick. The tick lives but its blood is cleansed of the Borrelia bacteria and it no longer poses a Lyme disease risk.

In areas with Western Fence Lizards, about 5% of ticks carry the disease, while in other areas 50% of ticks harbor the disease.

The recent rise in tick-borne diseases spreading across the U.S. is alarming. Global warming is a suspected accelerator, but one needs to also seriously consider that the over-use of pesticides such as Round Up is exponentially fueling the fire.

Then there are the bees and the butterflies…

Ticks-2019-New Ticks & New Diseases-Have a Defense?

Rambo-Riding

Tick Season is about upon us and it’s looking like it will be a bad one!

Ticks are on the rise worldwide at alarming rates. The numbers of ticks are increasing, tick-borne diseases are on the rise, ticks are being found in new and far reaching regions, and new species of ticks keep being discovered!

One line of thought is that global warming may be a contributing factor to the pandemic rise of ticks.

As reported by the CDC: From 2004 through 2016 A total of 642,602 cases of disease caused by the bite of an infected mosquito, tick, or flea were reported in the U.S.

The number of reported tickborne diseases more than doubled in 13 years and accounted for more than 60 percent of all reported mosquito-borne, tick-borne, and flea-borne disease cases. Diseases from ticks vary from region to region across the U.S. and those regions are expanding.

50 states have now had residents test positive for Lyme disease.

Ticks-Off is Effective Immediately…

When I was a kid I boarded my horse at a stable where we had over 10 stray dogs at all times. We stable kids would spend hours pulling ticks off those poor dogs. Gross!? Right?!

But we didn’t have a better solution.   Flea collars and sprays certainly didn’t work on ticks.

Now-a-days days we have many products for flies, fleas, and ticks.  Well, sort of… because as we all know they don’t ‘really’ work on ticks.  Not really…

I know, I hear you, you use the #1 mainstream spot-on flea product on your dogs and cats …  (Thus far, there have not been any such tick products for equines.)

Products such as topical spot-on flea killers (which are marketed as ‘the most effective’ against ticks) , and pesticide flea collars that are marketed for killing fleas & ticks, have listed some pretty scary negative side effects, such as seizures, neurological disorders, and even death.

Yet, even being highly toxic, they do not necessarily protect your pets from ticks.

Fall is here! And Ticks are Having One Last Hay-Day For the Year…

No-Ticks-dog-horse

Fall is my favorite time of year! The nights are getting colder,

the trees are changing color, and the holidays are just around the corner.  And unfortunately the ticks are out having one last hay-day for the year!

So for a Fall Special – we are offering Free Shipping on all orders in the month of November, 2018. Use Promo Code: FreeFall

With ticks still on the prowl you’ll need to keep your guard up for a bit longer yet in order to protect your pets from ticks, and their deadly diseases, this Autumn season.  Sadly, safely protecting yourself and your pets has become a year round concern, largely due to global warming. Check out what Dr. Joyce Harman wrote in her recent blog…

“While the nymph-stage ticks are most common during the spring and summer months, adult deer ticks can generally be active whenever the temperature is above freezing,” said internationally known integrative veterinarian and owner of Harmany Equine, Dr. Joyce Harman. “If ticks are active, Lyme carriers are still capable of infecting us and our animals.

Prevention is key where Lyme is concerned, especially if you live on the east coast.” Says Dr. Harman.
