I understand it helps to pee on your shoes before going out. Ticks hate that.

Keep your grass cut short and the birds will take care of a big part of this problem.

Every day, eat two or three match heads. Just bite them off and swallow them. This may sound questionable, but I heard it from an ancient old NCO when I was in the Army, and it really does work. You have to start about a month before the flea/tick/mosquito season starts and keep it up all the way through the season, but something about them, probably the sulfur, keeps the bugs mostly away.
