Shake the bottle well. Hold the bottle 6 – 8 inches away from the clothing or gear to be treated and spray with a slow sweeping motion to lightly moisten the fabric. Spray until the surface is visibly darkened. Let the clothing or gear dry for at least 2 hours before using. Refer to the package instructions for further details. The 0.5% permethrin formula protects your items for up to 6 weeks and through several wash cycles.

There are several theories as to how DEET repels insects. One of the most popular theories is that DEET works to confuse and deter mosquitoes from where it has been applied. DEET interferes with a mosquito's legs and antennae making it harder for them to detect humans who have applied the product to their skin. Mosquitoes use their receptors to detect carbon monoxide and body heat to locate humans/animals, and DEET works as a cloaking device to disorient mosquitoes and prevent them from biting.

When applied to clothing or gear per the label directions, the permethrin bonds tightly to the fabric. When you come into contact with ticks or insects, permethrin acts as a barrier by repelling insects and killing them on contact.
