What to do about a tenant who's stinking up the place with cigarette smoke?

I recently inherited a house that has a tenant in a studio apt over the garage (attached to the house.) The rest of the house is empty. She smokes, and has been provided with an ashtray for outside use. The house REEKS of smoke every time I go in, and I'm worried about prospective buyers being put off by the stench. She insists she's not smoking in the house. How can I prove it, if I want to evict her? Her lease runs till next November.
