Ticks! Ticks! Ticks ! How do I get rid of them?

  • If you live in an area which will allow you to have chickens, Guiney hens will eat all the ticks in your yard. Even just one hen will clean quite a large area of ticks.

    Hi Nina, Eucalyptus oil is known as an effective tick repellent and killer. Just combine 4 ounces of purified or distilled water into a small spray bottle along with 20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil. You can also use diatomaceous earth.
