I mix my own too.. same concentration. It certainly works! There have been times where I have still pulled a tick off.. maybe I use too much water but I know it still works well. Without it I usually pull several ticks off!

I have watched ticks actually fall off my pants before when using this stuff, and, have found them dead in the creases of my pant legs that were tucked into my boots.

Permethrin is considered the most "mammal friendly" insecticide available. Although there is some evidence it can be harmful, those studies used very high concentrations of the chemical (10% or more). So far, very little evidence 0.5% concentrations cause any harm.

Now I'm sure continuous exposure to any chemical that can kill insects has biological risks, I feel more comfortable being exposed to tiny amounts of permethrin than I do the massive chemical exposure DEET sprays produce. DEET sprayed on the skin is immediately absorbed right into the blood stream, where it is filtered by the kidneys. Honestly, that can't be good over the long term.

Or pro-longed exposure to ticks for sure! Don't like messin' with RM spotted fever, or Lyme Disease!

You are 100% correct that DEET can be bad news. That is why they market "family" insect repellants with lower concentrations of DEET more suitable for kids.

I have read that some Park Rangers in the Everglades had some pretty significant neurological damage from long-term use of 100% DEET while on the job.

I'll take my chances with permethrin sprayed on my clothes.
