What's the best way to get rid of paralysis ticks from lawn?

My dog recently had a paralysis tick which nearly killer her. We use Fronline on her but I would also like an affordable way to spray my lawn for extra tick prevention.

Hi Kerry,

I am sorry to hear that you have had such a frightening experience with a paralysis tick on your dog. I do hope he is okay now. We do not have a specific product to control paralysis ticks. Yates does have a product called Blitzem Ant, Flea & Tick Killer ( I have attached the link) http://www.blitzempestcontrol.com.au/products/blitzem-ant-flea-tick-killer/ It is important to follow all the safety directions on the label when using such a product around animals. Your Vet may be aware of a product that will control these particular types of ticks. As your Vet has probably already told you, the best way of keeping your dog out of danger, is to check over your dog's coat every day just to make sure there are none of these creatures present.
