LYME DISEASE IS AN EPIDEMIC IN THE UNTIED STATES
And our farmers and their farm animals are increasingly being exposed to it. ENTER CARNIVORES! Carnivores like Coyotes especially, and foxes offer you the service of rodent patrol. And rodents (white footed mice) are the carriers of the Lyme disease bacterium and other life threatening bacterium. Below is a link regarding the serious need to treat your farm as an ecosystem that needs all it parts.
ALSO… THE OPOSSUM! You may not think they are cute, but they do serious work in tick control. They groom themselves fastidiously, like cats. If they find a tick, they lick it off and swallow it. In one season, a opossum can kill 5,000 ticks. They literally vacuum the landscape as they move along.
