What can I do about a home that is infested with ticks?

My home is infested with ticks.

I would hire a professional to rid your home because it'd be really hard to find them all and spraying an insecticide everywhere is going to be hazardous to your health. I have heard sprinkling diaomataceous earth as a natural method can work. It cuts through them when they walk through it so they dry out and die.

Are you sure they are ticks? Bed bugs look a little like ticks. Depending on the size of your home or apartment you'll need one or more bug bombs.

They hide in cracks. Use a spray containing Permethrin, which is odorless and can be used on carpets. Let is dry. Then dust cracks and crevices with Drione Dust.

Call a pest control agency and inform them about the infestation. You can also spray tick repellants to your home.
