Yup. It’s just a big honkin’ jug of it. $43 a gallon instead of $30 for 24oz. Also registered for some other applications. .5% water-based. $aver Pak JT Eaton on Amazon.

If it will kill my lice and bedbugs...gotta get me some!

BTW, $15 for the 24 oz, not $30.

We did this starting years ago and slacked off as ticks became much less prevalent. I should have continued, but we just don't have ticks like e did before.

It's the diy version of a commercial product. Daminix is probably the name; misspelled.

For backpacking, dilute permethrin to 2% and treat clothing.


I did this (except I used pvc pipe) and it seemed to help. I also declare war on the Jap Barberry bushes.

Yeah, the mice use the cotton as bedding material, being tick hosts, the numbers drop.


For clothing, .5%. Military uses ~.6%

Thank God.
I was thinking when he said that, every country home needs a flock of guineas and a herd of opossums.
My friend had ticks all over her dogs when she moved into her home in the country. She decided to try guineas and from that point on she never saw one tick.

Seems like a good idea. Plenty of anecdotal reports.

Bummer is when they themselves become hosts...

Best place to get Permethrin is a company called SAWYER - www.sawyer.com - they have it in several styles and options.
