Q: Best Yard Spray that Kills Deer & Lonestar Ticks?

I am looking for input on what yard spray works best on killing deer and lonestar ticks. I have never had a problem with them before - our yard is fenced in and everything. I was looking at Bio Spot, but one site says they kills deer and lonestar ticks, and another says nothing about it killing those kinds of ticks. So I am a bit confused. I want these disgusting creatures gone ASAP, so please advise! Thanks!

well, it's not a spray, but when we bought our house we were worried about keeping fleas from becoming a problem since we have several feral cats that hang around our yard and a dog that uses the same yard. my uncle recommended a product called Talstar, which comes as tiny granules that you scatter on your lawn with a broadcast spreader. Talstar kills a great many different bugs, including at least some kinds of ticks. really, i can't remember what all it kills, the list was so long. i'm pleased so far. haven't had any flea or fire any problems, and no ill effects to my critters.

Just a thought, but some landscapers spray for fleas and ticks.
