I know I’m probably preaching to the choir, but use your permethrin everybody! I soak a couple pairs of pants with Sawyers each summer and a shirt or two as well. I reapply after every third washing. Today after checking a camera I found a tick crawling on my pants in the car. I pulled over to watch the show. My pants were on their second washing, so I wasn’t sure how long it would take to see the tick begin to be affected. It took less than two minutes. He fell off my pants onto the car seat. Pretty easy to see why I haven’t had a tick all summer.
