Ticked off
« on: March 15, 2023, 11:10:25 AM »

Whether you use a commercial product or make your own soaking solution, take the time before season opens to prepare your hunting clothes with a Permethrin based treatment to eliminate the threat of tick and chigger bites this year. Ticks can be a very real problem in different areas of the country in the spring and can carry and infect you with the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. People are becoming more aware of the long term problems that tick bites can create.  Do yourself and your loved ones a favor and treat your clothes.  Permethrin doesn't just repel ticks, they actually die rather quickly from contact with it on your clothes. It has been proven to be benign to humans when applied per instructions and allowed to dry completely prior to wearing.  Since I have been using Permethrin on my turkey hunting clothes 12 years ago, I have found ZERO ticks, redbugs or chiggers on me. I said ZERO!

Enjoy everything about your spring turkey season.

Cheers  ;D
