Getting Rid of Ticks - Our Yard Is Infested With Ticks

We have a pond at the bottom of the property and we have found ticks and scorpions. We have a Pomeranian (long hair) and a Siberian Husky. Help.

Getting Rid of Ticks - Our Yard Is Infested With Ticks

Food grade diatomaceous earth, found at home improvement stores. Not pool grade. Sprinkle it all over, even on your pets and in the house. Some even recommend putting a bit of it in your pets' food. Dave Owens, our local garden guy, even puts a bit in his mouth on TV to show it is harmless except to bugs. I use it all the time.

Pat in Arizona where we have lots of nasty little bugs. (04/18/2010)
