I have a feeling they will find the uptick in cancer is caused by all these chemicals we are exposing our bodies to. I'd rather just stay drunk, that way the bugs will not enjoy the alcohol and I will not feel them biting me.....
Never in doubt, often wrong

That works. Cirrhosis will get you before the cancer has a chance.

Seriously, I do share your concern for the indiscriminate way we use chemicals to try to manipulate our environment. I see them as a last resort. Best is to travel to a region when bugs are less active. Some places, of course, that only leaves the dead of winter. Next best are physical barriers: clothing, netting, screen rooms. Last resort, chemicals.

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.
