    Roger that ..Thanks for the info.. sure is time to treat your dogs and get that good bedding for them. Red cedar works great along with a good flea and tick deterrent...

    I have found if you put 50/50 water and tick shampoo in a spray bottle and spray you and dogs down before you go in you seem to find a lot less of them #@&*@bugs

    Time to get an army of guinea hens to free range your yard and keep them ticks at bay

    For sure, i let my 12 hen’s free range all last year and ticks went way down. This spring im going to spry all my yard, woods, bushes etc. fleas were quite harsh last year for me.
