The cheapest product to use would be a Permethrin based product such as Permethrin SFR or TenGard. The question is how would you apply it? For proper tick control all ground surfaces, tree trunks, vegetation etc, needs to be treated. The rate of application would be around 1 gallon per 1000 square feet. That equals around 43 gallons per acre. That's difficult to do without the proper application equipment. 1 oz of Permethrin in 1 gallon of water per 1,000 square feet, not including trees, heavy foliage, vegetation etc.
