    My niece died from Rocky Mountain spotted fever last year. Best thing to do is check yourself thoroughly. I always offer to check the girls around the camp sites I frequent. I'm just trying to save them for crying out loud....its medical...thats why I use a good pair of of glasses and a light.

    Does not matter what pants you choose to wear-- just spray them with Permetherin

    It sure does!

    I live in an area with lots of ticks and lyme. When I heard about permethrin I purchased some and sprayed up a set of clothes.


    I wanted to test it.

    I went into a heavy tick area, and quickly picked up a deer tick on my lower pant leg, about 1/2 way to my knee. I then watched as the tick continued to climb and I wondered if the stuff worked. When it got to my knee it stopped for a while, then started to go spastic and twitching, then it fell off, dead.

    I've never been bitten by a tick wearing the treated clothes. I treat a whole set of clothes, socks/pants/shirt, if working outside I've done my coveralls. Besides the whole exterior, I spray: inside the cuffs, inside the waste area, the fly, and around the collar. I try to wear pants that I can tie off the cuff or stuff the cuffs inside my boots.

    It works on most every insect. Those that fly can still get you on exposed skin, but if they land on your clothes they are toast.

    I got away from deet on my skin and have switched to picaradin which seems to work just as well. It also won't melt plastics if I spill some like deet does.

    If I'm in real bad flying insect area I wear a military bug hat/net and gloves. I've been in the Allagash in Maine and central New Brunswick peak of black fly season (think a cloud where you are even inhaling them). I've heard the skeeters can be as bad summers in the far north.

    permethrin???

    Is that the name of the chemical or the product?
    how is it compared to deet???
    Sounds like good stuff if I can spray it on cloths and shoes like I do with Deet.
