Either put out Borax in your yard (Mule Team Borax, like clothes are washed with), or sevin dust. Both will help rid the yard of fleas and 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.

Dog lying in the grassTicks are over-abundant this year, and I live around lots of trees. Is there any good solution for getting rid of them in the yard? I keep the grass cut short. I distributed borax in the yard, which gets rid of fleas very well. I am hoping it works well for ticks too! There are cats and squirrels around our house that I think are bringing them into the yard.

You and the neighborhood would benefit if there were several clutches of guinia hens. They wander but neighbors shouldn't mind when they find what beneficial birds they are.

They will clear a mountainside of ticks given time. They are smart as well. Not as vulnerable as chickens.

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.

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.

Thanks for the info. I think our chickens eat ticks too, as we aren't over run with them.

Guinea hens. The worst infestations like in parts of Texas are totally eliminated with Guinea hens. Their best work is on ticks. Fleas, ticks, silverfish, pillbugs, cockroaches, you name it.

Our yard is infested with ticks, so bad that we can't let our kids out there to play or let the family dog out. Is there a home remedy to control the infestation of the ticks?
