And some deer are going with them. Sorry, deer! At the North Haven Village Board meeting August 6, the mayor, Jeff Sander, said that the plan for controlling deer ticks includes culling the herd and implementing feeding stations that apply permethrin, an insecticide, to the deer as they eat. (Permethrin is also used in K9 Advantix for dogs.) Residents can apply for temporary hunting permits in October, and professional hunters will also help thin the herd in the fall. The feeding stations cost about $5000 each, although it is unclear how many the village needs to purchase.
