Arrived on 25th, left on 31st - Supposed to leave on 30th, but got fogged in and left on July 1st (the 31st of June). Bugs not bad at all, some mosquitoes, black flies were unseen - 3 mile, moskey, chickenbone. Lot's of big mayflies at Richie that were quite friendly. Richie had probably most things pest.

I just bought a bottle of Permethrin 10. It says livestock spray 10% permethrin. Is this the stuff your talking about and I just dilute it?
Thanks

The prescribed strength for treating clothing is a 0.5% solution. Dilute what you have 19 parts water to 1 part from your bottle. You can soak the clothing in a small bucket of diluted solution or use a spray bottle. You need to make sure the clothing is completely saturated. Wring out the excess and let thoroughly dry. Wear gloves but getting a little on your skin shouldn't hurt unless you happen to be allergic. Just completely rinse off your skin to make sure. You can easily store any excess mixture, just make sure you label it.
