Ticks are becoming huge problems in many areas now, all we can do is use products like Permethrin to help protect us on our hunts and outdoor outings.
Another thing I think would help is if Homeowners begin the practice of treating their lawns with products like Diazinon, Sevin, Spectracide or triazicide or one of the many other bug/insect killers available, especially if they have pets.
We had two Yorkies in Florida, after letting them outdoors just a couple times both got ticks on them, The Vet suggested treating our lawn which I did and only had one more tick show up over the course of 4 months,
the Vet then suggested switching between products as some of those pesky bugs/insects can become tolerant to the treatments after that we never had another tick on our dogs thanks to the Vets advice.
