Grow your own flea and tick control !
Predator nematodes. Different types. Do a web search for best price.
Works great on insects, like fleas, that spend part of their lifecycle in dirt.
These may or may not work as well for tick control. Ticks aren't insects, but arachnids--like mites, scorpions, and spiders.
Here is a link to research where nematodes are being used against ticks.

Buy some liquid Sevin and spray your yard.

In a difficult environment, I assume this stuff works.
I did a Yahoo search.
Sevin is listed as teratogenic in guinea pigs and beagle dogs.
Teratogenic means ?monster making?.
Sevin causes birth defects in various animals such as guinea pigs and beagle dogs.
Sounds scary. What do the labratory studies mean in real life.

I sprayed it with Pro strike a bottle spray that attaches to my hose. It said it is good for fleas, ticks, mosquitos etc.. for 4 weeks.
Seem to be pretty costly though at 21.99 a bottle for 5,000sq. ft.
I will see what i try next. Someone rec. to me a garlic spray from another thread.
