I am cross-posting my reply from FT-L to here FYI:
Ticks are susceptible to any Permethrin containing pesticide. Permethrin
is sprayed on clothing and other materials. It is non-staining, has no
odor, and is resistant to heat, light and moisture. Unlike DEET and
Lemon Eucalyptus, it is an insecticide, NOT a repellent. All they have
to do is crawl across it, so simply spraying down the carpets and
upholstery with a suitable spray should do the trick.
I remember working for the man who was testing that stuff at UF 30 some
odd years ago....
