How can I treat my outdoor clothes with Pyrethrin for mosquitoes and ticks?
There are a lot of new clothing lines that are impregnated with pyrethrin as an insect repellant (such as InsectSheild). US Military uses this technology also. I heard that you can soak clothes in a 5-15% pyrethrin solution and get the same effect. Do you have any links to techniques that I could use with your products?
We have a product for just that purpose called Tick Block. It is a process made for treating your clothes at home with a pyrethrin based solution. Unfortunately normal pyrethrin insecticides are not labeled to be used on clothing, but Tick Block is specifically formulated for that purpose.
