Caveat: They work for Black-Legged ticks and other species that use small rodents for intermediate hosts, but aren't likely to make a big difference in populations of Lone Star ticks, since they don't bite rodents nearly as much.
I've never attracted or even seen a tick in my yard. Strange.
The lone star tick larvae are out and about through about September, and then in Oct/Nov, the adult deer ticks come out. Seems it's always tick season.As Sue said previously, this is the season for new population hatching, Tiny, almost invisible critters. Not only are they too small and light-colored to see, they are so small you may not feel them on your skin. How I didn't notice one on me until it engorged. Ugh.
