I have 4 pigs in NJ who I'm always picking ticks off by hand. Internally: I use garlic and diatomaceous earth in my supplemental feed for my 4 pigs to prevent unwanted critters. Externally is a different story. Ticks are a problem here. Everywhere and everybody I talk to is little help. I have (17) guinea fowl already. It's just not enough. Lymes is my main concern. Does anybody have advice that they themselves have actually tried?
I use this little lifesaver to get ticks off our dog. It's very cheap and easy to use. It basically slides around the tick, then you lift the tick up really quick before the tick gets wind off what your doing. I out the website and more info below. Good luck.
Tick Key - The Easiest To Use Tick Removal Device On Earth. Our Tick Removal Device was made to be placed on a key ring for easy access. It is designed to remove ticks so that disease does not spread during removal and so people and pets would not squirm while trying to pinch, pull or prod during tick removal.
I think I'll just lie down here for a second. And ponder this tiny ad:
