Will mosquito treatments also control ticks?

Insecticides are not one size-fits all, and treatments to reduce mosquito populations will not work on ticks.  Why?  Mosquitoes are flying; ticks are crawling.  AND they are a completely different type of insect, with a different body size.  Tick applications need to be made at ground-level where they crawl, and with significantly greater doses of product that required for mosquito control.
