Question about Permethrin & Scent blockers

Postby ihunt » Thu Apr 13, 2017 12:22 pm

Hey everyone

Gotta a question that's been nagging me for awhile. My question is if we were to treat our clothes with Permethrin can we spray a scent blocker over it? Will it reduce it's affectiveness of the Permethrin? Thanks

Scent Blocker prevents the gasification of material. Do some research and see if Permethrin gives off a gas to ward off insects.
No mater what you do, you will never make yourself indetectable to a deer's nose. So while I might be wrong, I think you're wasting your time worrying about it.

I have used both with no problem . The permethrin only smells for a little while until it dries . But I had ticks crawl across my pants with permethrin on them go figure . Also not all ticks will come from the ground they will drop on you from tree branches and down your neck.

You got that right . So when one comes in from outside in tick country tick check I take a shower and sometimes that does not get rid of them all . I live in a very high tick area have I have chronic Lyme disease because I had Lyme before it was heard of in my area I had it for at least 4 to 5 years before I found a Doctor who would test me for it . Does that keep me inside NO I just do the checks and have the medicine on hand . Lyme most likely caused my MS.
