Product Description

For use on clothing, tents, and other gear, Sawyer Premium Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent not only repels insects, it actually kill ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, mites, and more than 55 other kinds of insects on contact. It is also effective against the Yellow Fever Mosquito, which can transmit the Zika Virus.

Permethrin is odorless after drying and will not stain or damage clothing, fabrics, plastics, finished surfaces, or any of your outdoor gear. Use it while hunting for an odorless way to protect yourself from common bugs. The active ingredient Permethrin is a synthetic molecule similar to pyrethrum which is taken from the Chrysanthemum flower.

Sawyer Premium Permethrin comes in two sizes -- a 12-ounce trigger spray bottle (for treating up to 2 complete outfits) and a 24-ounce trigger spray bottle (for treating up to 4 complete outfits). Sawyer Premium Permethrin is also available in a 9-ounce aerosol spray. A single application lasts up to six washings or up to 40 days of sun exposure. Repellent should be applied outdoors and before clothing is worn; after it’s treated, hang clothing and let dry 2 hours (4 hours in humid conditions). Color of bottle may vary.

Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water, and injuries -- everything from first aid kits developed for wilderness to point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water.

2011 Pennsylvania deer season was unseasonably warm. The first week and a half had high's in the mid 50's. The ticks were extremely active. I treated all my hunting clothes with the Sawyer Premium repellent. My brother who hunted the same property, did not treat his clothes. In the first 3 days my brother picked over 100 ticks off his clothes. Myself on the other hand, did not find a single tick on any of my clothes the entire season. The ticks simply would not attach themselves to my clothes.

One day at lunchtime we were both back at our vehicles and he was picking ticks off his pants. I scraped one off his pantleg and while sitting down, placed it on my thigh to see what would happen. The tick crawled around in a circle for about 20 seconds then promptly flipped on it's back and died.

He was so impressed with the product, he purchased a bottle that evening, treated his clothes, and for the remainder of the season, he found no more ticks on his clothes.

This product has been a blessing as I work in woods infested with ticks because of a huge deer population. Just spray your clothing as instructed and you won't find ticks on your person anymore. This is the only product that has worked for me 100%!

I pretreated all the clothing I took with me to Haiti with this spray and had no problems with bugs the whole time. I would highly recommend this product to anyone going to areas where malaria would be an issue as well as highly bug inhabited places in the US. I wouldn't use this everyday, but for special occasions - it's a must have. Just make sure you wear gloves when applying and apply exactly as instructed.

Background: I got devoured by mosquitoes on a trip to Mexico in 2009, and the assault on my system was enough to land me in hospital 3 times in a single week. (During the first two visits to different hospitals, my condition was misdiagnosed and I was given the wrong treatments; the third hospital figured out that I had developed an allergy to the mosquitoes). It seems that because I was bitten so many times (over 50 bites), my body went into some sort of shock and ultra-defence mode. As a result, I now have a very heightened sensitivity to all bug bites.

With this in mind, I intended to use as many precautions as possible for my recent trip to Hawaii. Here's how I protected myself (I'll discuss Sawyer's Spray in a moment):

Step 1:
Started taking Vitamin B Complex two weeks before departure. I chose one that had huge %RDA of each type of Vitamin B (I think B12 is the most vital), and always took it in the morning because it can cause really awful nightmares if you take it close to bedtime.

Step 2:
I sprayed all my holiday clothes with Sawyer's Permethrin Spray.

Step 3:
Covered all exposed areas with Ben's 30% Deet wipes every day. http://www.amazon.com/Tender-Bens-12-count-Travel-Wipes/dp/B001GAOIME/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1303674359&sr=8-5

Step 4:
Always had my "Zap It!" clicker tied to my handbag. I can't find these listed on Amazon US, but they shouldn't set you back more than $8 apiece, and they each have about 10,000 clicks. This was one of my great investments! I definitely recommend getting one. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zap-It-Mosquito-Bite-Relief/dp/B0012GMT0A/ref=sr_1_2?

My impression is of a first class company and product. We are visiting Costa Rica with two little ones and had questions about whether this product could be safely used for children's clothing. I called the Sawyer company and was astounded that they took the time to not only speak with me, but to pass my question along to their top technical person who returned my call personally. He shared with me a wealth of information and could answer every question I posed (and many that I did not know to ask). The bottom line for using with children is a)as with all things, ask your pediatrician first and b) they told me they recommend using the aerosoul spray that is available as opposed to the pump if you do use on children's clothing as it will stay on outside surface of the clothing better where the pump spray will tend to soak through the material some. Plenty of other reviews go into general information and I won't repeat here. I was impressed with the wealth of research and extensive safety information that they have on the products they produce. What a great company, the likes of which you seldom see these days! I'll buy from them every time. Btw, they mentioned they also have a time released 20% deet repellent which reduces the amount of deet absorbed twenty fold; good to know if you're in a situation where you decide to use deet on children or in my opinion for anyone that uses deet sprays.

Buying a shirt or pair of slacks that has the bug repellent added will also add $20 per item to it price. Instead get a bottle of permethrin and dilute it and apply it with a small garden sprayer to saturate the clothes you want to take and then let them air dry. The higher the concentration the more washings before the permethrin is completely removed from your clothes. The Sawyer kit with the solution pre-diluted and the trigger spray is an easy way to go though the solution will only be good for 6 washings at most. This is more than adequate for use when traveling but not for clothing you will be wearing a good deal over a period of many weeks.

I used $10 worth of permethrin to treat all my clothing and my wife's for trips to Asia and Central America. With this approach you can pick the clothing you want to wear and treat it instead of being limited to what is sold by the travel sites. It also means you can treat socks and scarves as well as tops and pants. DEET is tough on clothing so it is better to use the permethrin solution on your clothing and only apply the DEET to your face, neck, hands, and feet.

My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Cambodia in the temple areas where the mosquitoes were thick in the air and during that entire time neither of us had a single mosquito bite. The permethrin also is effective for ticks, midges, chiggers, ants, and flys.

With the resistant malaria strains and Lyme disease and encephalitis concerns it is best to be proactive and permethrin sprayed onto clothing is an excellent first step.
