yes, numbers go up becuase population goes upthe number of people contracting it has increased in recent years,
Same here. If I do see a tick crawling on my pants....I just relax and then lean over to take a closer look at him. This may be wrong of me to say, but it does my heart good to see him writhing around as he breathes his last.Funny story about permethrin. I use it liberally before turkey season, and usually reapply mid season. But the combination of tall grass and heavy dews took a toll this year... i looked down one morning to see dozens of ticks on my pants. All from the knees down, with the highest ones stone dead
The next tick that bites me, while I’m wearing my permethrin like I’m supposed to, will be the first.
You can if you buy the concentrate and mix your own, and spray it on with a spray bottle. It will last a few weeks, even through washings. I use it on pants, shirts and hats.Yeah but in my case I can't treat every pair of pants I have so I treat some snake leggings I use. It's Ok but the worse time of year is July and August when seed ticks hatch.
That's your problem right there. A tick can crawl up your boots and under snake leggings to your socks.Yeah but in my case I can't treat every pair of pants I have so I treat some snake leggings I use. It's Ok but the worse time of year is July and August when seed ticks hatch.
Sawyers is just a brand name. It has the same permethrin as the ones you buy in an ag store. Just buy the concentrate. You'll save money.What brand are you using? I think Sawyers has been the best I have used. I duct tape my pants I mostly get them in my socks. I'm talking seed ticks not larger ticks in my socks
Its legit but can get expensive. they do say a pair of socks is one item but even if you only do one shirt, one set of pants, boxers and socks its 40$ and that excludes items like hats or gloves, so it would be more if you wanted to be covered head to toe. If you only use one set of hunting gear it might be cost effective but for anyone that has multiple sets they need to treat it can add up. But I suppose if you have the funds it might be worth it since it lasts so long. I buy a big bottle of concentrate off amazon and go that route. I used to use sawyers but it gets expensive after while.Any of used or heard of a company in Greensboro called "insect shield" that you send in your clothes for treatment that is supposed to last 70 washing for $9.95/item?
