      Comments about Sawyer 24 oz. Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent Pump Spray:

      Gave the product a good test: Two of us applied it to clothing a day ahead of a 7-hour bushwhack hike along a stream, through wet meadows and over a ridge through thick brush. A third person did not treat his hiking duds in advance. The two of us who used it did not pick up a single tick. The other guy made up for our lack -- he counted 35 by the end of the hike, picked off another three on the ride back and found two more against the clothes dryer filter screen.

        Really cut down on the insect bites this year. If I hit the woods with untreated clothes, ticks and chiggers tear me up. Very happy with the results.

            Comments about Sawyer 24 oz. Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent Pump Spray:

            Great, great product. I have used this on multiple outings for weeks at a time, and never had an issue with ticks, mosquitos, flies, etc. - in areas where I've previously been plagued. Others on the same outings were constantly dealing with insects that didn't come near me or my gear. An additional bonus is the effectiveness is the complete lack of odor after drying!

            Comments about Sawyer 24 oz. Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent Pump Spray:

            I used this to treat my clothing and tent and backpack for a 3-day backpacking trip to north Georgia's Cohutta Wilderness. I never got bit by anything the whole time. This product was used along with Sawyer's controlled released deet (no scent). Would highly recommend this product. The only negative is the trigger on the bottle was hard to use and didn't provide an even and consistent spray pattern.

            Very useful tick repellent

            By Eric

            from Lempster, NH

            Comments about Sawyer 24 oz. Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent Pump Spray:

            For work rather than recreation it doesn't last quite as long as the label indicates. Probably mostly due to more soiling on the clothes and heavier duty wash cycles reducing the permethrin concentration a bit. Definitely lasts 4 weeks, but with high tick populations there's a noticeable falloff in efficacy by 6 weeks. I usually spray work clothes the first of the month. Helps to have clothes that have fibers that tangle the ticks as they try to climb. Contact time x concentration = paralyzed ticks. On my old work pants with fibers that pill up a bit, with a fresh spray ticks won't even make it up to my knees. With a five week old spray on clothes with a nice smooth weave they can make it up to the shirt collar, though even then they're much less likely to attach than they would be on untreated clothes. Once you've learned how to use it properly the biggest problem with the spray is that it isn't available in 1 gallon containers.

            I work in tick, mosquito, and biting fly infested woods six days a week. I have been using this product for years and I am telling you professionally that this product works BETTER than what's stated on the label. It kills ticks within minutes and mosquito's and fly's don't come near. Anyone that has a complaint about this product is not applying it right, or not following user directions correctly. I recommend this product to all of my clients and friends because it KILL'S TICKS!

            Last year I did a fair amount of early season Bow Hunting and followed that up with Muzzleloading season and a solid week of hunting in warmer weather...All through the week I checked myself after each day in the field....NOT ONE TICK NOTED...was more than worth the price and time to treat my hunting gear...Bought another 3 bottles (24 oz) for this year....side note...My Vet recommended this for using on my dogs...Non toxic to dogs....(But don't use on cats)....

                A:

                Depending on the fabric there may be a noticeable residue on clothing that has a glossy finish, more absorb-able cloth will not show a residue.

            • Q:

              Is this product actually dangerous to get on skin? I have been told that permethrin should not be used on skin because body oils render it ineffective rather quickly. I can accept that it is useless as a repellant on skin, but would really like to know if it will damage skin.
