If you are someone who has asked the question of, "how can I feel safe in my own front lawn?" then I am so happy to introduce you to DeerBusters, because their sole work is stopping ticks before they ever get a chance to enter your yard. DeerBusters is the industry leader for deer fencing and garden fencing options across the United States. Established in 1984, they have been wildlife and exclusion experts for over 30 years, and they really know their stuff. They are a one stop shop to get everything you need to protect your home, from deer fencing accessories to full systems & kits. Deer fencing is by far the best thing you can do for your home and your family to stop ticks from entering your lawn. If you stop the source of the ticks before they ever find a way onto your lawn to begin with then you can feel safe walking & playing in your yard again.
Ticks travel on large animals such as deer, and small animals such as mice & rabbits. This is also where they pick up the many diseases they carry, and as these animals run across your yard the ticks drop off and now become ready to latch onto you as soon as you set foot on your lawn. When you put up deer fencing you stop these animals from coming onto your yard to begin with, thus stopping the carrying of ticks onto your property.
Below is a short video showing you how to measure/install the fence on your property, and also giving you an idea of how the fencing works:
DeerBusters carries kits & fencing, which many people choose to install themselves. They certainly make it incredibly accessible to do, carrying full kits containing everything you would need & they have a great step by step video on how to install the fence. Think of DeerBusters as the one stop shop for everything in deer prevention & fencing! There are also professional installers who can act as the muscle for you and get the kits/fencing that you order all set up. This is a great option for someone who doesn't have the strength or ability to install it themselves.
If you tried to copy the benefits of deer fencing by only spraying your yard with repellant, you would have to spray your yard every single day to get the same amount of protection. Yes, you heard that right.. every single day! No one has the time nor energy for that. Deer fencing is a one time installation that keeps your home protected with no extra added work afterwards. That is definitely my kind of protection!
I never realized how close to home this issue was for me until 2 weeks ago when I went outside for 5 minutes, walked across my lawn & came inside to find a tick on me. It was a very small lone star tick, and it frightened me. My own front yard felt like a war zone with ticks & disease, and it's incredibly upsetting. Deer fencing is what makes the difference between seeing your lawn as a place to feel relaxed vs a place of fear. So if you are looking for better ways to protect your yard from disease carrying ticks then the very best way to do that is deer fencing. It isn't nearly as daunting as it seems (the kits make it very easy), and will be much more cost effective than any other option (such as spraying your lawn every single day).
