    Boyd,....sprinkle sevin dust around the yard. It will work on ticks that are there now,..and new ones won't cross it. It helps with all other bugs too.

    Many garden insecticides will kill ticks. Get info from your local garden supply store and spray or drop the insecticide, covering as much of your property as posible. It is also the best way to prevent your pet from getting flees that are brought to your property by stray cats or other small mamals.

    Permethrin is the best killer of ticks there is. It was developed by the military a number of years ago and could be purchased surplus. Now the big chemical companies have begun to market it. The good thing about it is one application lasts for months and the human body will break it down, unlike other insecticides. I live in the country and our area is heavily infested with several species of ticks and this gets them all. Look for the strongest % of Permethrin you can find. A mixture of 1.5% is sufficient to kill within a couple of minutes after contact wet or dry. In our area, Lowe's carries a product called Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer made by Spectraside. It's a 5.7% liquid emulsion that you mix in a sprayer. Really works!

    You could always treat the dog.
    We use Front Line on our Dobermans and Lab.

    No fleas, ticks, nothing..sakofan..

    I believe you have to get this stuff from a vet.
