Permanone (tick repellant)

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone used permanone? I hear it works great for repelling ticks. You spray it on your clothes and let it try for a day or so. I guess the ticks stay as far away from you as possible when you have it on and I have read that it kills them if they touch your clothes. Just curious if anyone can vouch for its effectiveness. Also, I am wondering if you have to worry about it melting your skin if you get caught in the rain. shocked.gif I am planning on giving it a try for mushrooming. I got Lyme's disease a couple of years ago so now I am very paranoid.

I have used Permanone several(maybe even many) years ago, I didn't even know it was still around. The stuff works great. Spray it on your boots and pant legs and you will be tick free. Yes it does kill them. I quit using it though. The stuff I used had so many warnings on the can that I just wasn't comfortable. I think I suffered from that old "fear of my first born will have three eyes and glow in the dark syndrome". My other thought is if it is that good and that safe more people would use it and you would see it everywhere.

I have heard it is very toxic in high doses. But the product that I found at fleet farm only has like .05% permanone in it. Maybe it is being marketed again at a lower percentage. I heard as long as it doesn't come into contact with your skin you should be fine. That's why you only apply it to your clohtes. Who knows. Hopefully I live I guess.

I've been using it for tick repellant for many years. I also use it on the dog. It is extremely effective in keeping the ticks off. I spray my shoes, clothes and socks, and even my hat at times.

In addition to ticks, it takes care of mosquitos and other biting insects as well.

So far, the third eye in my forehead has proven to be useful for hunting, but getting sunglasses to fit has proven difficult.

Well I guess I will give it a try. A third eye might be kind of cool.

I have used it and it does work very,very well. You need to keep it off your skin. Read the directions and be careful and it will take care of the tick problem.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
