bottle of sawyers says it will treat 2 outfits. I used a whole bottle on one outfit, plus boots, seat cushion, and face mask, which didn't use much extra. I've worn the gear several times and only washed once. The clothes were put through a hot dryer - is that the problem? Last couple times in the woods I pulled quite a few ticks off me that had no problem getting past the clothes treated in sawyers.

FWIW, I re-treat after every washing and sometimes between washings, depending on the severity of the ticks.

0 ticks for second turkey season in a row. Treated clothes twice and was literally crawling through bushes and cedars at points

it was an all natural detergent made from borax and other things. Doubt it would hurt. I'm thinking of buying the concentrated permethrin and mixing my own solution. just need to know the right ratio to use, and then I can soak my clothes in it and wring them out, instead of just spraying.

First of all, men don't wear "outfits"

I spray mine down once before the season, maybe once during the season and that's it.

I don't wash them, just hang them outside. They stink a little, but I don't get ticks and the smell just kind of smells like turkey season to me.

Nobody takes my man card... the bottle said outfits, I was just going by that... There are too many guys around franklin who spend too much on their outfits to worry about me and my hunting clothes \:D

Cat,

When you say pulled ticks off, are you talking about ticks crawling on you or ticks that had actually embedded in your skin? Even with permethrin, I still find ticks crawling on me while in the field, but I never have ticks make it long enough to bite.

I also always tuck my shirt in and tuck pants into socks or tape pant legs.
