What is Tickshield
Tickshield is our strongest and longest-lasting bug spray, making it ideal for hikers, campers, and other outdoorsmen. Because Tickshield dries quickly and does not stain, it’s perfect for clothing, backpacks, tents, and other gear, too.
Tickshield is a family-safe, plant-based bug spray for use on people, pets over 20 lbs., and all throughout your home. Tickshield kills and repels fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, ants, and mites. Because of its stronger scent, we suggest consulting a veterinarian before using Tickshield on animals under 20 lbs.
How to Use Tickshield
Spray directly on skin, clothing, and gear to kill and repel insects & many other pests. Use hands to apply to face-do not spray directly. Avoid contact with eyes. Use before and after outdoor activities to kill and repel mosquitos, ticks, and other biting pests. Reapply as needed.
Tickshield should only be used on medium to large size pets. We do not recommend using Tickshield on cats.
Spray a light mist directly on fur, on a brush, or spray onto hands and massage into coat until solution reaches the skin. Use hands to apply to face-do not spray directly. Be sure to apply all over, including armpits, in between toes, and on and around ears and tail. Use on pets before and after outdoor activities to kill and repel pests like fleas & ticks. Reapply as needed.
Spray as needed to kill and repel insects in all areas of the home: including flooring, counters, furniture, doorways, window frames, and pet areas. Tickshield dries clear and will not stain.
Tickshield vs. Cedarcide Original
Tickshield and Cedarcide Original are both family-safe bug sprays for personal, pet, and indoor use.
Tickshield is simply an extra-strength version of Cedarcide Original, containing 20% cedarwood oil compared to Cedarcide Original’s 10%. Because of its stronger scent, we suggest consulting a veterinarian before using Tickshield on animals under 20 lbs.
How Does It Work?
Bugs are sensitive to moisture loss, which is bad news for those that come into contact with cedarwood oil. Cedarwood oil leaches moisture from insects and other bugs, leaving them dried out and eventually dead.
