Keep Off the Grass!
Ticks like to live in long grass, or wild, unkempt lawn edges. It’s these creatures that carry things like Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and ehrlichiosis.
It’s sometimes impossible to keep pets on the sidewalk, nor is it always practical to keep them completely off the lawn at home. They’re naturally inquisitive and want to explore. Except you won’t be able to keep them permanently off the grass but do try and limit the time they spend there.
At home, keep your lawn neatly manicured, especially near to sidewalks and patios, and near any shrubs or undergrowth, or near areas of garden furniture and bins.
