Thanks for the info. I think our chickens eat ticks too, as we aren't over run with them.
Rural neighborhood? Get some guinea hens. Your neighbors will love you. Easy to care for. Little housing. Easier than chickens. Favorite food? Ticks. They do travel a bit. Get neighbor OK, in fact all neighbors can chip in.
Small yard? City lot? Cedercide granules. Inexpensive.
For around $8 there is a powder that you sprinkle all over your yard. It is available at Wal-Mart, or probably any hardware store. It is also effective for fleas, spiders, ants, and I cannot remember what else. Ticks like tall grass. They wait on the end of grass for an unsuspecting host to come along, and dinner is served. Keeping grass a reasonable length will help too.
