Sawyer is nice, but expensive. The stuff you mix is much cheaper.

You keep saying that the stuff used in insecticides is not safe to use on your clothes.

Here's something to ponder: Maybe permethrine IS the insecticide?
I can answer that one if you can't find the answer elsewhere.

It has been said time and time again to find a product that contains nothing but permethrine as the active ingredient, and many examples of safe products have been listed.

I told my vet exactly what I do with it and he asked me what product I was using, where to buy it, and how to mix it. He is an avid outdoorsman and now uses it to spray down his dogs and his clothes before taking them in the field.
What i have found searching and Martins is what i purchased and use:

I use my garden sprayer to treat my clothes with permethrin and wet them down well...everything. Hat, clothes, head net, gloves etc. Regardless of what concentration permethrin you use just remember your high school chemistry class whereas C1V1=C2V2. C=concentration V=volume. Also, I mix to 1% concentration rather than .5%. Another thing...they say it's good for up to six washings or so. Fine...but I spray again after every other washing. Haven't picked a tick off me since the dozen or so in Kansas several years ago...prior to my spraying.

FWIW found this (please don't shoot the messenger)


https://www.domyown.com/martins-perm...s-pq-2124.html


Q
Can Martins Permethrin 10% be used to spray clothing?

A
Martins Permethrin 10% should NOT be applied to clothing. We do carry Tick Block which is specifically formulated for use on clothing. While both products do contain permethrin, the formulation of Martins Permethrin 10% contains materials that should not come into contact with your skin.



Q
Can I spray the Martins Permethrin 10% on human bedding (mattresses) and carpet?
We have been afflicted with the scabies mite and need to get rid of it.

A
This product cannot be used on mattresses and can only be used as a light spray on carpets for flea or beetle control indoors. Scabies mites do not infest the home, they are a dermal(skin) problem that must be addressed by a dematologist and the creams or medicines they prescribe. There are not products for scabies mites on mattresses because they do not live on those surfaces. If you are looking for something to spray on the surface as a "just in case" contact kill, you could use Sterifab. All other treatment of scabies will be administered by doctors.

It's probably been discussed, but Bonide bed bug killer. Water based and pre-diluted. Works great!

Question for the guys using the livestock mix: does it have the same persistence through time and wash cycles as the commercial/Sawyer products? Multiple weeks and washes?

Free tick testing if you do get bit.

If Sunday hunting was not already illegal, who among us would not laugh at making it so?

Personally, I'm kind of baffled why anyone would get hung up on water-based vs. petroleum-based hunting turkeys not deer. I use the 36.8% concentrate from Amazon and dilute it to just over .5%. Although petroleum based, I don't notice any smell due to the low concentrate. Regarding it's effectiveness I just returned from two weeks in MO and KS. I never picked up a tick. My buddy's grandson, hunting in the same timeframe and areas, sans permethrin, picked up nine. I don't monkey around. I hang all my clothes, hats, headnets, gloves...everything...on the clothes line and pretty much wet them down.

P.S. Regarding wash cycles I don't monkey around there either. The stuff's so cheap that if I wash my clothes I re-spray. Why take a chance?
bad primer and Six-Gun like this.
