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

          I researched thoroughly and purchased this spray for our annual week long camping trip in Wisconsin. The mosquito's have been thick this year! As soon as camp was set up, I sprayed down the tent, our chairs, and the tablecloth. Within seconds of finishing the application, I noticed that there was not a single mosquito buzzing around our site!! We stayed for a total of 8 days/7 nights and the only bites we received were from stepping out of the safety of our campsite area. I am so thankful to have found this and plan on stocking up for future trips, you should do the same!!

            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.

                  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!

                  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.

                      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.
