Darn Ticks!!

by Nikki Montgomery

This year I think the ticks are worse than they've ever been. I have been picking them off the dogs like crazy. We have found them crawling on us, on the walls, the doors and in the garage. They are everywhere! 

Is there a good way to get rid of them? 

We have 2 dogs and a 1 1/2 year old so I worry that some of that yard stuff you can use would be dangerous for them. However, ticks aren't exactly safe. 

What is the best way to remove ticks from dogs? What is the best tick treatment for dogs?

How do you keep ticks off yourself and kids while playing outside in the summer?
