TICK HABITAT REDUCTION
throughout Vermont and New Hampshire
Ticks that carry Lyme Disease thrive in heavy brush and weeds.
Shredding with Forest Savers' machine turns brush and heavy vegetation into mulch that is inhospitable to ticks.
Exposure to ticks can be significantly reduced by creating mulched buffers around yards and creating 5 foot wide, brush free trails through the woods.
