I'm not exaggerating when I say I had 200-300 tiny no see em ticks each, from inside our socks to the collar of our shirts. SUCKED. Things were s ****ing tiny I didn't even notice till it was to late. Got home took a steel wool and rubbing alcohol shower to get the off, now I have 300 itchy ass swollen bug bites covering my stupid body. Buddy showed me some spray to keep them off your clothes, promethirine? Anyways we'll go back,, just a lil more prepared.....
Permethrin. It works great but is NOT to be applied to the skin...clothes only. Once it's dry, you can wash the clothes several times over a month or so and it remains effective. Once it's dry (on fabric), direct skin contact is ok (like socks, underwear, hats, etc).
Also read up a little on it; it can be toxic to some domestic animals if ingested (cats for sure, maybe others).
It kills the bugs shortly after contact on treated material. It's also exceptional against fly and mosquito. If you spray netting, it'll take out flies, Mosquitos, and pretty much any other flying pest.
