Protect yourself With Permethrin
Having recreated in the U.P. for decades now, we have noticed a disturbing trend of ticks appearing at our favorite places where before they were nonexistent. A CDC Study has confirmed the efficacy of permethrin-treated clothing in deterring ticks capable of transmitting Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and other vector-borne pathogens.
For Yoopers unwilling to spend $80 or more on pre-treated pants, shirts and other apparel, we offer Ben’s Complete Clothing and Gear offers an effective and affordable way to protect against ticks by treating the garments and gear they already own.
Available in a 24oz. pump spray, Ben’s Complete Clothing and Gear insect treatment uses a .5% permethrin formula that kills biting insects on contact, including ticks that may carry Lyme disease and mosquitoes that may carry the Zika virus. Safe for use on tents, camp chairs, rain gear, and other outdoor clothing and gear, the long-lasting formula bonds to the fibers in fabric for bug bite protection that lasts up to six weeks, through several wash cycles. Tick season has arrived and now is the time to treat your outdoors clothing to keep your family safe and healthy this summer season!
