Hammock safe bug repellant?
Ok so I saw a topic on here about using deet to treat a hammock for protection against those that bite. Many people were strongly against the use of it and suggested permethrin as a better safer alternative. Well while I was out at Gander Mnt. this evening and stumbled across this product and the main agent in it is permethrin.
Here's a link let me know if this should be a winner for my HHUL when it arrives.
To further allay your fears,
several clothing manufacturers use permethrin to treat clothing made of polyester and/or nylon and market the gear as Buzz Off or Insect Shield.
I too have had no problems with permethrin, but DEET has damaged several pieces of gear. And what it does to varnished paddle shafts and grips is not enjoyable.
