For those who use Permanone, is there any smell once it is dry?
Do you ever "feel" the chemical bothering you (absorbing through your skin and such)?

FWIW, I hate chiggers and Seed Ticks!

I was in one club that I couldn,t step out of truck, I,d get chiggers. We tried ever thing under the sun to get rid of those pest. My wife went to the local drug store, the druggist told her to buy lice shampoo. I thought she had lost her mind when she came in saying lather up in this. I had to stand for about 5 minutes in the shower all lathered in that stinking stuff. Brother I didn,t have a chigger one the next day.

Why kill two birds with one stone when you can kill six with a shotgun?

In short, Permanone is the single most important thing to get pre-season. No smell once it is dry, no irritation from the chemical, not even when I am holding my gloves or hat in my mouth doing something. It even lasts for several washes through the washing machine and dryer. I swear it is a miracle.

Lay out your clothes on some garbage bags, or hang them up, and spray them down. Don't have to get them soaked, just damp or moist. I spray my shirts, pants, socks, underwear, neck-gaitor, gloves, and hat. Let them dry undisturbed overnight.

I had a bad allergic reaction to chiggers once, and I don't want to visit that experience again. In the five or six years I have been using Permanone, I HAVE NOT HAD EVEN ONE CHIGGER BITE!!! I did go out once in clothes untreated scouting and got several bites, and I was just walking around.

One Wal-Mart didn't have it, another one did (I bought 6 bottles just in case I can't find it again), so check around.

Sawyers is the only way to go IMO. The place I hunt is eaten up with seed ticks! Spray this stuff on your hunting clothes and let it air dry for 12-24 hours. Dries pratically odorless and bonds to the molecules in the material. When I hunt I just spray down real good with scent killer, and no problems!! Just this weekend had a 6pt and three does 10yds from the stand and dead down wind. Didnt smell it at all! Better than getting eaten alive!! Good for chiggers and skeeters too!!!

go to tractor supply and buy one of the 8 oz. bottles of 10% permethrin. cut it with water and you have enough bug spray for the rest of your life.

In short Permanone is the way to go.. Just make sure you use it on your clothes only. Not your skin, and another trick i do is get some camo duct tape and tuck your paint legs inside your boots and tape up the top of the boots to the paints and that helps seal out any little critters that might slip in the gaps
There are the do's, then there's the watchers, and then there's the one who just don't have any business being here.

Deep Wood Off will also work well. Keep you pant's tucked into your boots. Scrub well with a rough wash cloth after you outing and you shouldn't have any trouble.
