Insect repelent clothes

I was just brousing a Metal Detecting fourm, ran across this site about insect repelent clothing, Never new it existed, thought we all could use them.
The prices on some seem pretty good, I bought a hat and some socks.

The clothes are just sprayed with Permethrin and will wear off after 6 washing's.

I go to Walmart and buy a quart of Permethrin in the garden section, mix it 1 part P to 10 parts water and spray it on all of my hunting clothes and let it dry in the sun. It works great especially for ticks.

When walking in deep grass where ticks are likely, a lot of people wear bands around their pant cuffs. I am wondering if using dog flea & tick collars as bands around the cuffs would be safe and effective.

Animal flea collars do not work, or have never for me cause I tried em while hunting. The Permethrin that Mau Mau mentioned works pretty well. When in the woods or in areas where ticks are mking their home, I always tie my pants cuffs and use a good bug spray, usually the highest concentrate of Deet I can get. And lastly, when I get home I immediately wash the clothes worn in hot water and I take a really hot shower and do a good search of my body for ticks. I can deal pretty well with ticks and mosquitos, its the sand gnats that I reall dispise.
