How can I remove/repel ticks from my yard without harming the pollinators (bees)? My property backs up to a woods and I normally have little problem with ticks in my yard but this year we are finding them on the dogs (they are given monthly flea and tick preventative) and us almost every time we go out there. I would like to know if there is any product that I could treat my yard with that will not harm the bees. I am a novice gardener and need to keep my bees healthy and happy. Any advice you can give me would be welcome.
