A while back there was a thread on bowsite, about treating clothes with permethrin, to prevent ticks.....anyone remember where it was? Or what ratio to dilute it down to soak my clothes in? Thanks

It is on the Wisconsin thread, i copied the link if this is the topic you were thinking of.

There seems to be a lot of conflicting information on mixing the concentrated solution. Often times people just don't understand what they are saying; e.g. 0.005 means 0.5%, not 5%. WoundChannel's link had some good information from orionsbrother. The link I attached also has some information. Half percent (0.5%) seems to be a pretty common solution that is effective, but not too potent. I believe orionsbrother was using something like 0.175%. A little heavier dose would likely give you a little longer protection, but remember it's still a chemical that you will be coming into contact with. What happened to your leasing thread?

Btw, about 5 fluid oz. of 13.3% permethrin mixed with a gallon of water would result in a 0.5% solution.

go to the turkey forum. I try to remind the people to check for ticks while turkey hunting. I know too many people that have been hit with Lymes.

Thanks guys, never got any advise about the leasing thread.

When I checked on it, the topic was locked. Not sure if you knew that.

Why would it be locked? I wasn't advertising a lease....was thinking about leasing and wanted to know how to do it, from others who have done it.
