Where to find permethrin in Toronto?

Hey all,

Anyone know if any niche/camping/outdoor stores carry permethrin spray for clothing? It's pretty rare in Canada, but some do. I know there's some on amazon.ca, but I'd rather buy it in person downtown if I could.

Anyone have any luck with this?

Have you had good experiences with it? Seems awesome for pants/socks to avoid ticks.

Not on socks!!!
Dont spray it on anything thats gonna ride yer sweaty skin. So spray yer bdu top n bottom. Spray yer boots if you like (if they are cordura or fabric of some kind)
Dont spray your hat, your gloves, socks, anything that will be in direct contact with yer skin.byes i know the bdu will contact the skin. But its not snug fitting like socks n gloves.
just read the can and yer good. It works great. Ive never used bug spray in years cause they dont bug me much but now i can see folks covered in bugs and i look like that commercial for the off fans thingy lol.
best way to protect against ticks is just avoid fields with em from may till oct. Lol

I thought Permethrin was banned in Canada except for industrial/farming use. ???


It is great stuff though

For anyone curious, I ended up just ordering off amazon.ca for now until I can find it in stock locally.

You probably already know this if you know it by name, but this stuff is *extremely* toxic. Keep any gear that's been in contact with it in the garage or securely locked away from pets and children.

It's straight-up poison, which is why it's so effective.

I'm well aware. Luckily I don't have pets or kids to worry about, but I plan on storing it safely. Thank you for the tips!

You can get it in Alberta from the UFA. That's 36% concentration and higher. You will want to dilute it down to 1-4% but it's much cheaper in the long run if you are camping or traveling a lot to tropical area's where malaria, is a problem.

Permethrin when dried is safe to handle. It is a neurotoxin and is very hazardous when wet. Do NOT dump the stuff out on your lawn, or the sewer if you have excess.

permethrin in Canada

I get permetrin 1.5% concentrate at The Kore Garden and dilute to .5% with water. 1 bottle is good for soaking several clothing items. Its the only defense against the tick population that is growing in Canada.
