    It kills them within 5-10 seconds generally, I've used it on mounds before. A month or two later you can tell where you put it out their lines go around the area.

    You spray your tarp with permethrin? I never really considered that.

    I spray everything with permethrin! I hate spiders dropping down on me and ants crawling on me.

    Yep, done it twice in 6 years when using a green Claytor No Net surrounded by a green Pea Pod. Just flipped right over flat on my back.
    So Granny, join the club!

    But wait: GrannyPat, I see you use an HH bottom entry. I did not know this could happen with that hammock? Looks like I am wrong again!
    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.

    I did it with my DIY gathered hammock. My HH was sent to Hennessey for repair after the falling tree incident. I just got the ship notice. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=60808

    I still can't figure out what the ants were doing up there. No food up on the tarp. There was a line of ants the entire length of the ridgeline and a big bunch of them on one of the tree straps. Maybe they were eating the permethrin?

    West Oak is not too far from us. I've never been to their games but one of our church members takes good photos and puts them on this facebook page. We have been having some perfect fall days.

    Squirrels and birds eat nuts the ants eat the little pieces that fall on the tarp.
