Tick Killer Spray

Been using SAWYERS for years and it works, but it can be expensive......So I was told to try this, as it's the same chemical as SAWYERS....This will last a few years, I was told mix 2oz. to a gallon of water, and use it as you would SAWYERS. I purchased from Tractor Supply, but I had to order online and shipped FREE to my local store, cause they claim it's not sold in stores....It was under $11.00....

I’ve used them both. Both work. But the TS stuff has a noticeable odor to the clothing after drying. If that matters to you.

You have to watch. I ordered a bottle last year and it was a petroleum/oil base. It stunk really bad and did not dissipate. Had to wash the clothes many times to get rid of the smell. I need to make sure the next batch is water based.

Somewhere on the bottle it needs to say "Water Based", if it doesn't you'll regret the smell that does not go away.

Just go to your local hardware store and buy Bed Bug Killer in the easy spray bottle, no mixing required as it has the correct .5% Permethrin and is water based. Much cheaper than Sawyers.
I just bought a 32 oz bottle from Agway for $6.99 and there sitting right beside this was the Sawyers stuff, smaller bottle for $16.99

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

I have the same stuff that petroleum based. Have used it for year to keep the ticks off of me in Missouri. I mix 1.5 oz to 32oz of water, do have a slight smell when it is applied but none when it dry's.

Don't Gobble at me...

Thanks for the heads up. I'll pick some up when I run out of Sawyers.
