How long should it take for ticks to die after applying Tengard SFR Termiticide and Insecticide

We're hoping to not have to call a professional. We are hoping the Tengard will kill the ticks in our home. We followed the instructions and treated the house, cracks, crevices and floor spaces. How soon should it start to take effect? There's many testimonials about other pests, but very little on ticks.


Once the ticks come into contact with the areas Tengard SFR Termiticide and Insecticide
have been applied, they will usually die within 24 hours. Ticks can be a bit harder to control because they have a habit of staying in one place for a long time which of course can be a problem when the place they are sitting is not a treated area. Be sure to do a repeat application in 14 days for best control.
