Sawyer Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent will not only repel insects, but will actually kill ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, mites and more than 55 other kinds of insects. Sawyer Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent is for use on your clothing, tents and other gear. A single application of the Sawyer Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent lasts through 6 washings and is odorless when dry. During the drying process it tightly bonds with the fibers of the treated garment and it will not stain or damage clothing, fabrics, plastics, finished surfaces, or any of your outdoor gear. Permethrin clothing treatments, when applied following the directions for use, have been determined to have "spatial repellency" against mosquitoes. This means that mosquitoes will swarm around you, but not land on your treated clothing and bite.
We were planning a missions trip to a very poor community in the Dominican Republic where a deadly mosquito disease is plaguing many. We bought the Sawyer permethrin spray and used as advised. We do not remember a single mosquito bothering us. What a relief!
Great product. Easy to use.
