So, after 5 years of living in a major city, we've made the move to the 'burbs. And our house is surrounded by woods. I've basically gone from a tick-free zone to a tick-haven. Any tips for tick prevention? Obviously, my dogs are on Frontline. There's also a fence going up around the backyard of the house, so that should block out deer and keep my dogs from going in the woods. I'm cutting back some of the shrubs and bushes around the perimeter of the yard too. I'm also considering having a pest control company spray the perimeter of the yard (behind the fence). Couple other things I've read about... - putting piles of woodchips or mulch around the perimeter of the yard. Supposedly, ticks won't cross it. - Including a bit of garlic or garlic oil in the dog's food. But, I've also read that garlic can cause anemia in dogs. Thoughts/advice/success stories?
