Home Made Tick Spray

5 posts in this topic

Ive been buying Sayers Permetherine tick spray for the last 3 years and swear by it, but at $18.00 a bottle.......Well im cheep, I picked up a bottle of 36.8% Martin's Permethrin SFR at the local farm store, for $15.00 for 16oz, Sayers only has .05% Permethrine in their ingredients, and by the formula, I should be able to make 32 Quarts of spayable tick spray from 1 bottle just adding a 1/2 oz per Qt of water.

My friend has been doing this for the past 2 years, and says he gets the same great results as using the name brand spray. and with the cheap cost of it, he's not afraid to put it on a lot heavier. We are loaded with tick here in central Pa. I wont be testing it until Archery season.

I used the 10% (1oz in 6oz water) from Tractor Supply. Walked 7 miles in the woods, no ticks or chiggers… I'm sold on it.
