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


What he said. Too inexpensive to do so, and potentially expensive not to.

Mine is still going strong. Zero ticks and the only mosquito bites I have are a few on my hands from when I had my gloves off. I have washed my "outfit" once this season. I also sprayed my turkey vest with it.

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.
Pulled them off crawling on clothes, crawling on skin, and already having bit me. Have several nasty itching bites because of it - they don't have to be latched on long for the bite to itch for days. I even felt one biting me and pulled him straight off. Can't stand those dirty things...

Have you read the label? Permethrin is not supposed to be applied while wearing the clothes and it should be allowed to dry before wearing them. As effective as it is when used properly, why take a chance with your health? I hunt some tick infested places and never have a problem.


Yea i read it. Didnt work for me that way.

This is the first year I've used permethrin and I used most of one bottle on a pair of pants, shirt, hat, and vest. So far so good and I've washed them once.

Here's what you need to do:
Go to Tractor Supply and buy you a bottle of this (its like $ 10 or less) and it'll last you for a year or two, depending on how often you are in the woods.


Mix 0.5 oz in 1/2 gal water. I mix it in a pump sprayer. Hang your clothes and spray your clothes a day or two before you go afield, and you dont have to worry about ticks or chiggers. Be sure and let it dry before you wear the clothes !! I also spray my boots, and my turkey vest, backpack, etc. I went out this evening in the woods, and when I got back to my truck, there were ticks all over my pants legs and boots, but they were either dead, or barely moving (almost dead).Not a single tick on my body. Thats is some potent stuff.

My hunting bud makes the mix just as Knothead mentioned. It is definitely the most economical approach when it comes to Permethrin, while being just as effective, if not more, depending on your mix ratio.
