Thanks OP!

This is amazing stuff. In for 2 cans with free no-minimum shipping via Alexa. I use this stuff for almost all my fabric outdoors gear (as best as I can tell it doesn't harm synthetics or anything else like DEET does) including hammock and even my underquilt. On my thru-hike I didn't encountered remarkably few bug problems (except for gnats in VT and that was manageable) and absolutely no ticks. I can only credit this product (Sawyer brand, but I doubt that matters) and the ode-'de-hiker (anyone that encounters a long distance hiker knows the scent I'm talking about) for the results. I only reapplied once (at the North end of PA) too, so it absolutely lasts (though I did laundry infrequently so don't expect 2+ mo. lifespan with normal use).

Just realize the limitations of this stuff. It works remarkably well on clothing (and other fabrics as mentioned above) but being an insecticide (yes it kills the bugs) rather than a repellent it cannot/shouldn't be applied directly to skin and therefore you may need to supplement this with something like DEET (which I found to work decent, at least for some insects, like mosquitos), Picaridin (which I haven't had much luck with), or natural products/Lemon Eucalyptus (which I haven't found effective at all...I think the bugs consider it "seasoning") for uncovered areas like legs/arms.

The applications say that it does, but I have no experience with that use. Just remember that it shouldn't be applied to skin, so use it in the AM or other time when it has time to dry thoroughly before using the bedding and you should be fine.

I love this stuff. Just keep treated gear away from cats until it dries. It can give them seizures.

PSA. Permethrin will stay in your clothing for weeks even through multiple launderings.

Great deal. I paid $4.72 about a month ago.

FYI they claim it is "odor free". But keep in mind permethrin is probably one step below DEET, so obviously there is going to be a bit of a chemical smell. But if you let it dry/air out then the smell does go away pretty quickly.

In for 2. TY OP, repd

Hi tooslick - Thanks for the Walmart link. I personally wouldn't go to Walmart to pick up a $3 item because it takes freaking forever (at my local store at least). But this might be helpful to others, so reps to you. Smilie

I like this one better https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0...UTF8&psc=1 better. Less airborne when spraying (still wearing a mask). Two of 32 oz enough for multi sets (top to bottom) for family of three, actually for all our staff. Do it ones in the beginig of the summer. Affective after multiple washes. Make sure spray outside when there is no wind, so nothing wasted. Oh, this one has 0.5 of permethrin as an active ingredient, OPs one cannot find any info
