Be careful of those tiny ticks. I have found quite a few them already. I pulled a few off the pups and they are the size of a ball in a ball point pen, almost a miracle I have found them. I know they do tick spraying here and we had it done one year, not really sure if it helped or not. Check you baby daily especially in all the folds and creases, behind the ears and between toes etc.. As said above, just keep your yard cleaned up and if you have older children maybe think about a dedicated space cleared and filled with playground material. Rubbermaid makes a rubber fill that would be perfect for a swing set or jungle gym bedding.
