    You might want to ask how to use the produce as well as what to use.

    Ticks like to breed on bare ground that lacks ground cover, but they will also breed in turf. Therefore granular produces should be watered in very well. Liquids should be applied at 10 gallon per thousand Sq Ft with a good wetting agent. Ticks also like to climb shrubs and trees where they can jump on a mammal for the much needed blood meal in order to breed. Liquid treatment of trees and shrubs should be applied very heavy on both the top and underside of the leaves. Life cycles run 28 days and treatments should be spaced the same. A minimum of two treatments 30 days apart should be applied and in many cases 3 or 4 treatments may be necessary.

    DDT & Chlordane would work well. However since you posted this question on several forum you must not like the product advise you received on the other forums.
