    Hrm. Thats strange. They sell some permethrin containing products at Canadian Tire and Home Hardware. I've also seen it at a local army surplus store (in ON).

    Hey Mike99,
    I think Spidey does in fact sleep in his spider-hammock, and since he is a human being with spider strength and abilities, he isn't killed by neurologic poisoning like all of the other insects
    (read-Super Bad Bugs ((SBB)) ).

    I have treated my hammock and tarp with permethrin, and haven't experienced any problems so far, except for a more restful sleep which cuts into the time spent on the trail (less)...oh well, sometimes solo hiking is a good thingee.

    Happy trails

    I have not treated the huggers or full length of webbing. But I have treated either the suspension rope or webbing for a few inches right where they come out of the hammock, plus the last few inches of the hammock. And any other likely trouble spot. Seems to have worked.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
