Ticks are bad everywhere!!! I thought the long cold winter would have killed alot of them. Nope. They liked it!!!! May a few billion or so of them will drown now!!!!

In MB I was getting about 100 a day....... and thats for 4-5hrs in the bush. The bear I took must have had 3000-5000 crawling on him. I'm still finding ticks...... in my car and on all my hunting stuff. I'm almost afraid to go into my garage this yr. What do you use to kill em in mass numbers???????

Sandi,

Go to your local Dept store and get some Spectricide(sp?) spray. You can hook the bottle to a garden hose and spray your yard with it. I start off with the spray and then spread some Diazinon(sp?)(powder that's time released) on my yard. It keeps the ticks gone and does a pretty good job keeping fleas off my dogs.

For your garage, you're liable to have to set off a bugbomb to get rid of them. Raid makes some pretty good stuff.

I've been lucky here so far. I've only seen two which came in on the dog, although I haven't been out in the woods much myself.

Ok...that is just plain GROSS!!!!

You know, you could easily replace the word tick - as defined in Webster's Dictionary as: any of a superfamily of wingless, bloodsucking mites, including many species that transmit diseases and are usually parasitic on humans - with the word politician!!

That Spectricide is some good stuff. For all of you who have "imported" (the orange ones) ladybug problems this will take care of them too if you spray around your windows. If you have the problem...you know what I'm talking about Our ticks are bad here too this year. They don't give me the "eeebie jeebies" but I dread to see what some of the deer capes are gonna look like this fall
