Our expert says:
Paths and patios can be steam cleaned but it is very difficult to rid the lawn of ticks. Even in the "veld", burning does not get rid of ticks as they are able to head down the grass and find protection in the ground and as soon as new grass grows they are there again. It may be necessary to combine treatments (as mentioned before). There are some powders effective against ticks but be sure they do not interfere with other treatments or cause toxicity. You could enquire from your local pets control specialist if they can spray the lawn against ticks - its worth a try.
