This is a great product for the avid outdoor enthusiast. Weather your mowing, plowing, doing other things on a tractor, or just enjoying the outdoors, this product could quite possibly be a life saver.

The application is simple. If you have the spray, spray it on a set of clothes, and let it dry. The spray lasts around 6 washes. So my tip is to try to wash that set as little as possible. This spray protects you from ticks, mosquitoes and chiggers, other flies, etc. It works the same as bug spray, but is twice as effective. With all of the diseases carried by mosquitoes, and ticks, you lessen your risk of getting ticks mosquitoes, etc on you, reducing your risk of obtaining the diseases. It is rather cheap, for what you get. I paid around 12 dollars, cant quite remember the price. My dad is living proof this stuff works. When wearing the clothing that the permetherin has been applied to, he has gotten 0 ticks. As you wear and wash the clothes more, the effectiveness goes down im sure. For extra protection, why not apply your favorite bug spray, on top of the permetherin?

Search around on the Internet. There's companies that will treat your clothes and it lasts up to 50 washes. I did that when I was going to South America on a regular basis. Beats getting malaria and taking the malaria preventative drug protocol.

Watching Billy the Exterminator again on TV? He always uses and endorses the use of Permetherin.

 

 

It does work very very good and fast.And it's pet and people safe.My brother uses it on his little munsters (kids) clothing from time to time because the youngest one brang home a pretty nasty infestation of lice from school.Makes me itch just thinking about it.

If used on hunter's clothing, does it have an odor detectable by deer?

While you can smell it, its not bad, and they do have an odorless permetherin, so if smell is a concern, you could buy that instead of normal.

Unless I'm missing something, the risk from this product comes from ingestion. So, don't eat your shirt.

EVERYONE,
"spoiler alert" - NOT trying to start a "flame-war" here, BUT, THIS IS IMPORTANT TO ME, so, "whatever will be will be..."

permethrin
 

...Domestic animals
Pesticide-grade permethrin is toxic to cats. Many cats die after being given flea treatments intended for dogs, or by contact with dogs having recently been treated with permethrin. In cats it may induce hyperexcitability, tremors, seizures, and death.
Toxic exposure of permethrin can cause several symptoms, including convulsion, hyperaesthesia, hyperthermia, hypersalivation, and loss of balance and coordination. Exposure to pyrethroid-derived drugs such as permethrin requires treatment by a veterinarian, otherwise the poisoning is often fatal. This intolerance is due to a defect in glucuronosyltransferase, a common detoxification enzyme in other mammals (that also makes the cat intolerant to paracetamol and many essential oils). The use of any external parasiticides based on permethrin is contraindicated for cats. (Cat ecotoxicology : cutaneous 100 mg/kg - oral 200 mg/kg.)...
 
 
c'mon guys, let's NOT keep perpetrating all the 'urban myths/legends' - especially when you are already sitting at a keyboard!
 
How hard is it to do the google thingy?
 - About 2,940,000 results (0.51 seconds) - for cryin' out loud, that's barely a half a second
AND - it's P-E-R-M-E-T-H-R-I-N - only 2 e's in the word...
 
the "I believe" - "I think" - or just stating something that is patently false that is so easily checked makes other things you have to say about other subjects just a bit questionable, don'cha think???  :D
 
 
Think about it guys, put it on your clothes - keeps the whatevers off, okay!!!, 
BUT, does your cat ever rub-up against your leg?, have you ever seen a cat that didn't clean itself?, oh well...
 
Personally, BOTH of my little ones are very important to me, even the "damn cat" I didn't want that came with the little pom I did want... :wallbanging:
now, well, EVERY night when I'm turning in, as soon as my head hits the pillow, my liitle girl is right there to ALWAYS give me one of those "butterfly-good-night-kiss"...
(And I don't even have to have a pork-chop tied around my neck!!!)  :poke:
 
I think it's just like anything else we have to deal with today, you have to think it through, consider the pros AND the cons - 
 
ja'notice all the commercials on tv for all the NEW and IMPROVED wonder drugs today -
1 minute of how good the drug is, THEN, 5 minutes of all the side effects and downfalls of using it???
 
scary, huh?
