June 25: Permethrin

DF: We’ve had one nasty bout with Lyme disease, so we’re taking preventive measures this time. Ken is spraying our clothes with permethrin to repel as many ticks and mosquitoes as possible.

BC: I was the one with Lyme back in 2005, and I really would like to not repeat that experience. I’ve been using permethrin for several years and it seems to work pretty well.
