So, brown ticks and deer ticks are really bad in our area. The season is coming as the temps warm. I've pulled 3 from our Labs already! I don't free ranch my chickens and guineas, except on weekends and some weeknights as the days get longer. Obviously, that won't be frequently enough to keep the population to a minimum. I'd like to treat the yard with something to kill the ticks (maybe Sevin dust?), but want it to be safe for the chickens when they are out and about. If my chickens are like everyone else's, they eat, or at least attempt to eat everything on the ground. Any suggestions or experiences? I've read thru previous Sevin dust threads, but it didn't look like any addressed my concerns specifically so I apologize for repeating an old topic. Thanks in advance!
