Thank you Gilles for the additional information about PERMETHRIN.
This product was researched and used by the U.S. Military years ago.
The spray form of Permethrin is available under several different brand names and is sold
in many sporting goods stores in the U.S.
Considering the high cost of pretreated clothing the spray cans are the most cost effective way to treat your outdoor clothing.
Based on my own experience this product works. I wish I had discovered it before my battles with Lyme disease. Prior to discovering Permethrin I contracted Lyme disease 3 times.
A few facts I learned: The best test to check and see if you have Lyme is the
“Weston Blot test”. It takes 3 or more days to get the results.
Once you have had Lyme disease you will always test positive in any test.
Many medical specialists feel once you get Lyme disease the infection stays in your body forever.
Most doctors are reluctant to administer the very high doses of antibiotics required to kill Lyme.
The long term effects of Lyme are extreme mussel pains....extreme headaches,
High fevers, and flu-like symptoms......these can last a lifetime and come and go without warning......a very serious disease.
It is sad that the Canadian government is Reluctant to approve Permethrin even though it has been available for more than a decade in the United States.
It should be for sale
in all sporting goods stores and the public should be informed of all the facts concerning this disease.
