I have a terrible tick problem in my yard.Literally every time I go to the back of my lot where my bees are I get one or more ticks on me and about 50% of the time I get one biting that I've got to remove.
I have tried spraying with cedar oil which turned out to be a very expensive waste of time & money.
Can anyone offer a solution? Our nectar flow is on full bore now so I don't think there is anything I can do to kill these insects but I figured I'd ask. After the flow I plan on covering the bees one night and fogging theyard & woods with an insecticide. I have no choice. Last year my wife got Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and it wasn't joyful to say the least.
