Permethrin was developed from a pyrethrum that occurs in flowers. For years Permethrin has been used to protect crops from devastating insect plagues. It was also thouroughly field tested by the US Military and became standard government issue pest control spray for clothing and equipment.
The pump spray version makes a great choice for hunters because of the ease of application. Each garment requires 3 ounces and the pump spray quickly and easily delivers proper coverage. Don’t forget to spray your boots, pants, backpacks, gloves and headwear.
Permethrin provides over 40 days of odorless pest repellent control. Mosquitoes, gnats and biting flies will keep their distance. Ticks, chiggers and other mites will meet an early death if they hitch a ride on your pants. Sawyer’s Permethrin 24 ounce pump spray is on sale now for under $20 and should be in every deer hunters gear bag during the 2013 preseason.
