Thank you for your question. According to our veterinarians, wild insect-eating birds may eat ticks, but birds, such as robins, can also serve as a host for ticks. Like mice and deer, they can serve as sources of the organism that causes Lyme disease. Attracting birds to the field may not reduce the number of ticks. Some domestic birds, especially guinea fowl, are sometimes kept for their tick-eating habits. If you own the field, mowing it regularly, if possible, may reduce tick habitat. Areas around woods provide the most likely habitat for ticks, so you may want to concentrate on those areas.
