Mosquitoes may plague you, but if you live in many places in the U.S., ticks can make you really sick. And worse, you don't want to get Lyme disease or other tick-related illnesses if you can't just go to the doctor. Pemetethrin has been shown to be an effective deterrent to ticks, and you spray this Sawyer product directly onto clothes, boots, backpacks, tents, and tarps. It will last up to six weeks and survive rain and a half dozen washes. REALLY worth having and using.

  • FIELD NOTES

    We've sprayed this on our tent floor and the exterior, and noticed markedly less bugs. We also make a point of it to spray the inside of boots and gloves, and clothes we work in or regularly use outside. Ticks are a very serious problem, and they're getting worse. This is one of the front-guard solutions you can use. Truth is, we go through gallons of the stuff.
