With the up coming hunting seasons upon us, & you hunters like me that are in a state or area that has ticks, instead of paying the high price for Sawyers permetherin spray, follow this video & make your own------ https://bit.ly/2vI3LjE

I've been making my own for a couple of years now. This stuff really works for keeping mosquitoes and ticks off your clothes and it doesn't leave a heavy scent.

I also use it on spraying around the house and for spraying fire ant mounds.

ive made it with the stuff from tractor supply. just be aware there are different strengths and the oil based version has a smell to it for a while. its also toxic to cats and fish.

I have mixed my own too. Been doing a great job for many years for a few of us now. Nothing to it.

X2 on diluting the stuff from Tractor Supply. They call it “Livestock and Premise Spray”.
It’s 10% Permethrin. Dilute it ten-to-one. A $12 quart bottle has lasted me several years.

I just heard on the radio that Lymes Disease is found in all 50 states, and is now the fastest-growing vector-borne Disease in the US.

I have Lymes for longtime!!
Best defense is to take shower when you get home!
I take my clothes off at truck and into plastic container!
If you have dog use crate!
When you get home take comb thru dogs hair!
Next flea bath.

I called the soap folks on med industry!!
I asked if they could make soap that would kill ticks on us !
They said would look into it!
