Repel Permethrin Treatment Kits can be used to treat clothing, bedding or any fabric to protect against mosquitoes, bedbugs, scabies, ticks, lice and other crawling and flying insects.
- Permethrin is an insecticide that kills insects and arthropods which come in contact with it including mosquitoes, sandflies, ticks, fleas, bedbugs, chiggers, flies, lice and other insects that come in contact with treated gear.
- Provides a high level of protection against biting and blood-sucking insects.
- Use it to treat clothing, sheets, sleeping bag liners, mosquito netting and other fabrics.
Each kit contains 2 sets of gloves, bags, string, permethrin vials and instructions.
Each set is enough to treat 1 large item of clothing (e.g. 1 pair of medium weight trousers), or additional smaller items.
The weight and size of the fabric being treated will affect the amount of items able to be treated.
Only treat outer layers of clothing – not underwear. Once treated and airdried, the fabric will stay treated for up to 10 washes, or in the case of mosquito nets (or items unlikely to be washed) 6 months duration.
Repel Permethrin Fabric Treatment Kits should be used in conjunction with Repel Tropical Strength or Repel Ultra insect repellents to protect against dengue fever, Zika Virus, chikungunya, malaria, Ross River fever, West Nile fever and other diseases transmitted by the bite of infected insects.
