What is Permethrin?
- Permethrin is a stable (synthetic) form of an insecticidal compound produced by the chrysanthemum flower. It biodegrades quickly in contact with soil and water and is odorless and will not stain clothing.
- Permethrin has been used as a clothing treatment to prevent bites from ticks, flies, and mosquitoes since the 1970s and provides a quick tick knock-down effect – both repels and kills.
