Robert from Groton, Ct writes,

Is the Permethrin SFR oil based? I am looking for something that will not wash away with rain or sprinkler....

This will be used as a tick control agent, including Lone Star and Deer ticks.


The Permethrin SFR is petroleum/oil based and will hold up the outdoor elements roughly 30 days which is roughly the same time as most of our other tick control products that are water based as well. To get further control over ticks its highly recommended to use an IGR (insect birth control) like NyGuard IGR in the same mixture to stop the reproductive cycle of the ticks on your property. NyGuard is specifically formulate to be mixed with any insecticide and will hold up to the outdoor elements for normally roughly 4 months.
