Killing ticks in and around someone's yard alone will not protect someone from getting Lyme Disease. Humble correctly points out that reducing tick habitat and understanding the part of rodents play in the disease cycle should be part of comprehensive plan to reduce the likelihood of contracting Lyme. He is also correct in stating that some ticks will be found on lawns. We differ in how important the later is to prevent Lyme, but otherwise we have so much more in common that I fail to see any reason to attack each other.
