What can I do to get rid of or control ticks in my yard?
Usually ticks are a problem because a pet dog has carried them into the yard or house. Female ticks on the animal feed, drop-off, and lay eggs. The eggs hatch and thousands of larval ticks seek a meal, usually from the dog. Controlling ticks around the house means keeping the animal free of ticks with the use of a suitable dip, dust, spray, shampoo, and a tick collar. Dogs can be de-ticked by hand, but remember to protect your fingers or use tweezers.
