Stik put me on to it.Thanks.

I mix 1/2 ounce to 2 ounces of water.No ticks and im sure i have gotten a little on my skin and it hasnt fallen off yet.

Bout 7$ for a small bottle at Tractor Supply.
This seems awfully strong to me, what is the original concentration of the perm?

15 ounces of water to 1 ounce 10% permethrin.

x2, gives you a 0.625% permethrin solution, whereas Sawyers, Repel Permanone et al are 0.5% solution. You can always reduce your water by a few ounces if you want it a "little" stronger mixture, but I would not go less than 9 ounces of water, which equates to a 1% permethrin solution, thus twice as strong as Sawyers et al. Spray your clothes inside and out night before you plan to hunt so they'll dry and you'll be golden. When it comes to ticks, permethrin is your friend!

I have been using the Duranon brand, which has permthrin in it,for many years. It works wonders but it is getting hard to find and cost $7-$8 per can. I will be mixing my own now. Thanks guys for the heads up.

I have been doing the same as some guys for a long time I buy the 10 percent at co-op for $7 and mix 3-1/2 oz to an almost full 2 liter bottle and pour in a pump spray bottle.
