    Permethrin works wonders. It is available in cans as a 0.5 % spray for clothes/tents. However, it is cheaper to buy a concentrate and then dilute it. Here is the 36.8 concentrate I buy:

    My father in law put the concentrate in a sprayer and sprayed our entire campsite with it last year. He said that he could literally see the ticks running away from it. Prior to campsite being sprayed, everybody found several ticks a day on themselves. After spray, no ticks for anybody. Amazing stuff. It should not be used around cats or fish.
