Used them in very early spring and the tick problem drop way down.
We used them again this year in early spring and covered about 2.5 acres with 24 tube.
I have been to worst areas at the farm for ticks in the past and so far this year no ticks.
We have put no other poisons out for ticks so these have to get the credit. Our total acreage is 36 acres
I ordered from Damminix 24 tubes and then made up about 45 extras of my own with cardboard tubes cut in half from paper towel rolls. This didn't cover the entire 15 acres, of course, just the areas where I mainly walk and live. With nothing but wilderness for miles around, I wasn't even hoping for anything like the published results given for using these tubes on a manicured suburban lot, I was just hoping for some improvement and trying to be optimistic (although I suspected this was going to be a waste of time and money).
But I am pleased to report that this stuff really works!!!! I was able to do only one application last year and missed doing it again this spring due to travel, but the tick population is probably down at least 75% in areas treated, maybe as high as 80 to 85%. My dog has had 4 ticks all season, compared to a half-dozen a week last year. The Frontline was killing them, but I would still find them dead all over the bed -- yuck. He's strictly an inside dog, walked on a leash along our dirt road twice a day and before the tick tubes he was a little tick magnet. Neighbors are reporting ticks just as bad as ever in spite of the horrible winter last year, and a recent gardening publication for our area lamented the fact that the severe freezes hadn't knocked back the ticks at all, so the rather startling improvement at my place can only be attributed to the tubes.
So, I'm back this year to buy more -- lots more -- and also to make as many as I can to supplement. Don't hesitate to put these out later into the year. To target Lyme's you want them picked up by the white-footed mouse, but I had larger field mice stealing them right off my trays in early October last year when I was busy drying cotton balls sprayed with Pyrethrin (I found one's nest). I'm happy to supply the treated nesting material to all my rodent neighbors -- chipmunks, squirrels, etc. Although not the primary vector for Lyme's, they all carry ticks and I hate the little blood-suckers in general, not just the health hazard they pose. So this year I'm making a few larger tubes and even little boxes filled with the cotton balls to entice a wider variety of rodents.
NOTE: Although it's easy to make your own, the Damminix cardboard tubes are heavier than what you'll get using paper towel tubes and so they throw better. This is very handy when trying to get them way back in the brush, so I'm quite happy to continue purchasing as many as I can afford and supplementing with whatever I have the time to make.
