The IDSA board of directors. Let them camp out on the lawn.

Apparently, lyme cannot exist in their presence.

As I rarely get to make anyone smile or crack a joke about such a serious matter (and I'm not all the way joking - how DO the IDSA anti-lyme folks evade lyme?), hopefully, you will get some real answers.

This topic pops up a lot so you might find answers in the archives. Faster searchs by topic. If you have to start from scratch to ferret out a answer, or see what might be a NEW idea:

Check with top lyme advocacy groups and maybe your state university "extension" programs.

Then, check those suggestions with the Environmental Working Group regarding toxicity.

The goal would be effective, of course but also safe on all counts, looking to the future (regarding chemicals' effects on humans, animals, plant-life which is food for animals & us -- and the water table around you and everywhere the air flows during application process - and the later water run-off touches).

If you have a LLMD &/or LL ND, ask them. Most know lots about safety for lawn and garden & they will certainly be best poised to balance the priorities here.

thats the Keebler we know and love!!!

Keep up the miles of smiles Keeb.

You can spray Tempo which is pretty benign to us.

Use diamacious earth of which 20 mule team borax is made of

Some say orange products work.

Have also heard garlic based spray is effective

Or guinea hens,,,if your neighbors dont mind

Guess my last option is two bricks, hold one brick,,

,place unwanted thing on brick without touching it.

Take second brick and slap first with it------

(thats why I leave it as LAST option)

Oh yes, Keebler. By far that's the best response to this question I've ever heard!

I have my yard sprayed with permethrin. It is not 100% effective. We saw a tiny tick crawling up my daughter's face after the yard had already been sprayed 3 times.

For tick control, I would have to say living on concrete is the best way to go.

I am an organic landscape professional. There are a couple of products we use. They must be reapplied according to directions for best results.

St Gabriels & ECOsmart

Good Luck!

It depends on the weather and the product. From 7-30 days.
