Good info. What rate do you mix it at?


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

Good deal. Just wanted to make you aware of it. Flash fires are no joke!

If the liquid is 10%, you want to reduce that to 0.5%, so a mixing rate of 20:1 would be safest.

I like a higher mix, 1% seems to work best for me and stays on the clothing longer.

FYI...a 5% solution cream is used to treat scabies, applied once a week, so dont fret over getting a .5% solution on your skin by accident.

Permethrin-10, TractorSupply.
15 oz of Water to 1 oz of 10% petmethrin give you concentration of .625
Spray on clothes until wet... then allow to completely dry.
Will remain effective through several washings.

This is what I purchased.
