Tip of the Day: Ticks Keep Away with Garlic


Posted on : 14-06-2021 | By : georginesaves | In : Tip of the day

Did you know one of the main ingredients in tick repellent is garlic oil? This scent repels many other insects too (humans also!). To make your own all- natural tick spray add 4 cloves of crushed garlic to 1 tablespoon of mineral oil and let sit over night. In the morning remove the cloves and mix the garlic oil  with a quart of water and a squirt of dish liquid. Add this mixture to a spray bottle that attaches to your hose and water your lawn. The smell of garlic will dissipate in a few hours but the ticks will still smell it and keep away.
