Ticks are a part of summer. Several species exist locally with the most common being the “dog tick.” Mowing can help with ticks, but they are mobile so mowing is not very effective.
If there is a tick problem in the yard, it can be treated with an insecticide but often people do not get the results they expected. The problem is not with the insecticide but with the amount of water used to apply it. It takes a large volume of water because all the plant tissue in the treated area must be covered with the insecticide.
