I'd pick off all I could, then dust them with Sevin.

I've never heard of ticks on pigs. There is a tick spray for sheep. We use to put it on after we sheared. Maybe it would be ok for pigs. Your local feed store may carry it.

Default tick reply

make sure that what you use to rid the pigs of the ticks can be used on animals meant for human consumption,, get some guinea hens immediately they eat ticks.. call local county agent as well see what he says..

I've never heard of a pig getting ticks. Their skin is too thick. Are you sure they're ticks and not something else?

Check out this link. Has treatment. I've never heard of them getting them before though. But I guess they do.

Not like Dog ticks, like the kind you find on deer when you're skinning them. The kind that are flat and fast and hairy.
