Spray it on your clothes. DO NOT spray it on your skin.

It will kill ticks for several washings of your clothes.

I make sure I spray heavy on the waistbands, pants cuffs, button flys, etc to have a real barrier for the ticks to go across to get to my skin.

I've been using it since I bought my first can at LBL over 30 years ago, and nothing else even comes close for dealing with ticks.

I spray thoroughly the first time, and then add as I wear them. The stuff is much cheaper than getting treated for a tickborn disease.

There was a fairly recent thread in the General Forum that gave the mixing rates. If you can't find it, hopefully one of the guys that know the formula will answer in.

BTW, thank you for the advice on the pilot lights and polyuretahane. We were super careful, and so far haven't had any issues.
