OMG ticks baby ticks

ok so me and hubby just moved to the country with our 2 yr old son. The other day while playing in the yard I happened to look at my sons feet. Dont know why I felt the urge to check his feet but glad I did when I looked he had no joke over 100 baby ticks crawling up his feet and legs same with me,hubby, and nephew!!! In all we counted over 450 ticks were picked off us and we had been in the yard about 5-10min!!! Does anybody know what I can put on my yard that will kill the ticks but is safe around my outside dog? Help I went outside and just to see brushed my foot in the grass and had about 50 just from that and the ticks are about . that big the size of a period and some are even smaller!!!!

  • Those are called seed ticks, congrats. Now go find some tick powder for your yard because those are hella annoying to deal with.
