Would Permethrin SFR be the most effective pesticide to control ticks?

What would be the most effective pesticide to control ticks? I am considering Permethrin, Demand and Cy-Kick, with an IGR if that is the recommendation. This year in central NJ we now have the Lone Star tick in addition to the deer tick. As part of the yard treamtent, I would also consider a bait box for small rodents that applies Fipronil to their coat. Thanks

Answer:

Yes, Permethrin SFR 36.8% would be a very effective insecticide to control ticks.  It is labeled for ticks (including Deer Tick and Western Black legged Tick).  Permethrin would be mixed at 0.4 to 0.8 Fluid Ounces per gallon of water to treat 1000 square feet of lawn and applied as a broadcast application.
