I got some of the Repel Permanone from WM today, but the label says it is only good for about 2 weeks?
I mistyped or misrememberd, either way I was wrong. I use a 0.25%
solution! I have Permethrine in a concentrate and I can mix it in any percentage that I need. For treating my outdoor gear I mix up a 0.25% solution (3.2 oz per gallon), put it into a 30 gallon barrell and give everything a good soaking; then I let it air dry. Use and wash like normal. I drain off the rest and put it into spray bottles to use for general use, yard spray, kennel spray etc.
When mosquitoes get bad, like they are this year, I will mix up a hot batch and spray the yard after dark, really cuts down on the blood suckers; the nemotodes don't seem to control the mozzies like they do the fleas and ticks, of course I gotta re-apply the nemotodes after Ido it tho
Anyway, it works extremely well on fabric and seems to last through several washings, four or five at least.
buy it here in a 1 gallon jug
or here in 1 quart bottle.
