Is There a Fool-Proof Solution for Ridding Your Yard of Ticks?

About this time each year, homeowners begin to worry about keeping ticks away from their yards. One search on the Internet will yield thousands, if not millions, of results about preventing ticks from entering your yard. The fact remains, there is no known solution for keeping all ticks away. This is due to increased populations, and the various means by which they enter your property. They can come in on landscaping materials, our pets, rodents, and other wildlife, and on us.

Over the last few years, life hacks and DIY solutions have run rampant on social media. From cedar oil to apple cider vinegar, there are many recommendations for keeping ticks out of your yard. The problem with DIY mixtures is their effectiveness – or lack thereof. While the use of essential oils is a good start, it will not offer optimal protection for your yard’s expanse.
