What are the safest tick killers on the market?


Answer by  Bayarts (470)

A little known trick for killing ticks is to either eat or rub garlic on the skin. This safe and effective method can also be used on pets. For example, adding fresh garlic to one's dog's food will rid the animal of ticks within a day or two. This method is safe and very economical.

Choose a natural one that isn't toxic to humans, animals, and plants. Two that are recommended are Diatomaceous Earth and Nematodes. They aren't that expensive and environmentally friendly. Triple Sure is great for animals and safe to use on kittens and puppies.

One of the safest methods for tick killing is give your dog a bath in warm water, using an oatmeal shampoo. This will wash ticks and eggs away and kill them. Another method that is safe is to rub diatomaceous earth into your dog's fur. This will kill the ticks and is safe if ingested my humans or animals.
