Permethrin how often

Post by ihunt » Thu Mar 25, 2021 5:11 pm

How often do you treat your clothes with permethrin? Do you treat once a year, or after a certain amount of clothes wash?

I usually do mine about 2-3 times a season. Depends on the number of wash cycles!! BUT....the stuff "DOES WORK" as they say!!! :lol: :wink:

I see your from Canada and it’s not available here. I live about 45 mins from the NY border, order from Amazon.com (amazon.com won’t deliver to Cdn) have it delivered to holding business just over the border, fill up my tank with cheap gas :) pick it up and declare when I come back. I usually buy a lot of other things to make the trip worth while.

I spray my pants about every 6 weeks. I order mine on Ebay from a US vendor.

There was a petition raised a couple of years ago to allow permethrin to be sold in Canada but I believe there was not enough signatures. Yes there is a down side with this product in liquid form ( before spraying ) is accidentally poured down the sink or in a lake, stream etc it is highly toxic to fish, reptiles and pet cats. That is probably why Cdn gov won’t allow it but I‘m guessing here the reason why.

I spray my hunting clothing once before the season, so far so good.

I do mine once a year just before deer season opens. I figure it will last at least a couple of washings. So far it’s been working for me.

Yep, and I do not spray again unless I wash them more than 6 times. I have had very good luck with Game Hide Elimitic line of clothes, and for the past 4-5 years, that's all I wear. I gave my neighbor the jug of permetherin I had.

I have no reason why other than some kind of contamination somehow got in. I have never had that problem.

It must be something in the bottle. I mix 32ozs in a plastic bottle and it has never changed colors.
