    Every year I spray Spectracide Trizicide for ticks. This year I have guineas but every time we get near the woods we are already getting ticks on us in February. The concentrate bottle says will not hurt your pets once it rains and drys. My worry is what if the guineas eat the ticks or bugs after I spray. Will it poison and kill my birds?

    I would refer to the MSDS that came with the product. How old and how many guineas do you have? Personally, I would let the guineas do the work and not spray if they are already free ranging.
