    Got lymes over a decade ago at our cabin in Northern MN. Have been disciplined premetherin user ever since. Before premetherin, ever day outside up north guaranteed at least one tick found at the end of the day. Since using premetherin, not a single tick on any family member for 10 years - this stuff works! Even use parastar on the lab and she is tick free too.

    Only downside is we have spent a fortune on Sawyer’s but thanks to comments above we will be making our own from concentrate this summer!

    I buy it by the gallon from the farm store (the 10% stuff) and treat everything I wear in the field. I'm luck to have a week of days in the field each year, so I'd rather take my chances with permethrin than ticks. In fact, one still managed to embed in me during turkey season, so I put myself on doxy as a precaution. The tick-borne diseases are getting scary.
    We have not reached ethical perfection in hunting. One never achieves perfection in anything, and perhaps it exists precisely so that one can never achieve it. Its purpose is to orient our conduct and to allow us to measure the progress accomplished. In this sense, the advancement achieved in the ethics of hunting is undeniable.

    Doesn't seem to effect wool, but how about synthetics? I have the nylon corrugate guide pants that I'm the most worried about. I'm just going to go ahead with it because I'm headed to the lyme disease capital of WI... If this stuff works the way it's cracked up to I think it's going to be revolutionary!

    We use it on everything including high end breathables and never had a problem. Used on pair of corrugated pants last fall and was fine.

    Also, you should still use deet when in the field. Premetherin is not a repellant, it is an insecticide. I love 3Ms Ultrathon product. The DEET is encapsulated so they can use less harsh solvents so won’t wreck other gear like the traditional stuff .

    You're the best! I'm serious about owing you a cold one whenever I get a chance to stop in the cities.

    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

    This is a great vid on tick prevention for hiking and camping - also a lot of info I didn't know like finding the ticks in 24 hours to prevent Lyme, they arent usually found over 1800 ft, and sitting on a zseat.

    Well, after spending the weekend in WI I ended up seeing zero ticks. Not what I was expecting. I sprayed down my FL Corrugated Guide Pants and haven't noticed anything bad with the materials. I also sprayed down my dog. Neither of us had any ticks on us at all the entire weekend, but neither did anyone else. Not the best test in the world but if I think of it I'll keep you guys in the loop when the ticks actually get out and about. Surprising that I didn't see any with how beautiful the weather was. I would have thought they would have been everywhere!

    I used to work 20 years ago for Repel insect repellents and was told to avoid the cat while it was wet. Once it drys there is no issue.

    Strangely the ticks here in Central PA don't seem to be that bad this spring. Of course I've been avoiding going deep in to the woods because of them anyways. I've only found one on me all spring and it was at home while sitting in the lazy boy...no idea where it came from. Must have picked it up in the yard somewhere because I hadn't even been in the woods that day. My dog usually gets a ton of them, but even she has been mostly tick free this spring. We had a cold spring here, I wonder if that had something to do with it?
