I've also been spraying, after diluting, with the 36.8% concentrate. Unless you have a "Lyme aware" doctor he/she may not give you the best advice. In my case, I picked up some ticks (9) in KS several years ago. A couple days later I noticed the tell-tale bullseye on my collarbone. I was at a buddy's place in MO and I went to his doctor who gave me a 10 day script for doxycycline and told me to go to my doc when I got back home (NY). I went to my doc. I had to darn near argue with him to get an additional script! I was candid with him...I told him WTF if I was a teenager with acne you'd write it for me..he did. That was a number of years ago and I think most doctors are more Lyme aware these days.

The ticks are insane down in southern Ohio during spring. Walk 100 yards through tall grass and you're guaranteed to be covered in them. I completely douse my cloths and skin in Picaridin and Deet. They still crawl on me but really don't latch on which is good. I have never tried Permethrin but after hearing all the talk on here, I'm for sure going out to get some and load my clothing up.

Lyme disease is no joke. What's crazy is that there used to be a vaccine for it but he vaccine manufacturer discontinued production in 2002, citing insufficient consumer demand as the reason for discontinuing it. That's nuts, I would get one in a heartbeat if it was still around.

AS far as ticks and a few others, get yourself sprayed, BUT for you guys that run dogs, dont forget about your best friend, visit your vet and get your dog immunized.

I've been using the Sawyer stuff for years (since my dog tested positive for it).  Neighbor's boys got lyme last year...

Ordered this and some Rynoskin gloves https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00061MSS0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I know the gloves don't work against ticks but they do against skeeters and they are lightweight and very comfortable in the blind, I use one of their face masks in the blind plus they are both black in a blackened blind which I like.

Somebody here pointed it out to me because I wanted to water based variety, I don't recall who it was though.

I've had an autoimmune disease for several years.  Fast forward to 5 months ago and I saw a new doctor
  A few tests later and to my surprise I have had Lyme.  Trust me the side effects will last a long time if not as in my case a lifetime.
Not to brag, but most of my family's not speaking to me at this time.

Found this out when I was able to start hunting again a few years ago. I had gotten this shot before 2 or 3 seasons when the deer ticks were getting really bad. Last one I had would have to have been in 2001

For those of you who don't trust your math on the proper amount of permethrin to water. Both concentrates are here....the stronger one (36.8%?) and the 10%. (see the attachment below)
