For use on clothing, tents, and other gear, Sawyer Premium Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent not only repels insects, it in reality kill ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, mites, and more than 55 other kinds of insects on contact. It is effective against the Aedes Aegypti (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 outside gear. Use it whilst hunting for an odorless way to give protection to yourself from common bugs. The active ingredient Permethrin is a synthetic molecule very similar to pyrethrum which is taken from the Chrysanthemum flower.
A single application lasts up to six washings or up to 40 days of sun exposure. Repellent must be applied outdoors and before clothing is worn; after it’s treated, hang clothing and let dry 2 hours (4 hours in humid conditions).
Sawyer Premium Permethrin is to be had in trigger spray bottles and as an aerosol spray. It is also to be had in several bundles, including:
- Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent with 20% Picaridin lotion and spray (also effective against the Yellow Fever Mosquito)
- Sawyer Premium Controlled Release Insect Repellent lotion (a family-friendly formula with 20% DEET that lasts up to 11 hours)
Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the most productive, 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.
