Making tick tubes - Take your tubes and toss them out on the landscape in areas most likely to be frequented by mice, rats, chipmunks, squirrels and other rodents and small mammals. These tick hosts will pull out the treated dryer lint to use as "feathering" for their nests, where continued exposure to the permethrin will kill the larvae and nymph ticks, breaking or slowing their life-cycle in your immediate vicinity, while not harming the mammals that live in those nests.
