Spices like cinnamon contain chemicals that repel insects. When used as a lawn treatment, cinnamon oil repels ticks because it contains a natural chemical called eugenol. This chemical is fast acting, killing ticks on contact. It is also effective for repelling and eliminating other common garden pests such as fleas, spiders, aphids, flies and ants. Most local garden centres offer yard sprays and treatment that contain cinnamon oil as an active ingredient.
Applying Cinnamon Oil
Cinnamon oil is a highly concentrated essential oil that kills ticks on contact by smothering them. Multiple applications of cinnamon oil may be necessary to eliminate a serious tick problem. Apply cinnamon oil each growing season to fully eliminate ticks. You can purchase cinnamon oil and mix one ounce of water with 80 drops of oil per 400 square feet of lawn. Put the mixture in a bottle that attaches to your hose sprayer and liberally spray your lawn with this mixture. For further natural pesticide benefits, you can use neem oil instead of water in this mixture.
While cinnamon oil is a safe, non-toxic choice for tick control in your yards, always use caution when working with or mixing this product. In some cases, humans and pets who come in contact with cinnamon oil experience contact dermatitis. Ensure that your lawn is properly hydrated and not under water stress before applying cinnamon oil, to avoid damage to your turf. The best way to keep ticks away from your yard and landscape is to practice good cultural care. Keep your lawn and plants tidy and trim to reduce shade and excess moisture, which commonly attract pests.
It is not recommended to apply to your body or your pets body any purchased essential oils from the $1 shop or Amazon as these are cheap fake copies with big brand names on them, you can read the customer reviews on Amazon regarding this.
