    I'm not sure where this idea that you can't get permethrin in the UK keeps coming from.

    I understand that it is poisonous to cats (which may explain why it is not easily available in higher concentrations) and bad news if it gets into water courses.

    and care needs to be taken using creams applied directly to skin and hair for scabies and lice infestations but AFAIK it is available as a solution in a variety of concentrations for various uses including clothing and mossie net proofing.

    Lifesystems EX8 is 1.2% permethrin and intended for proofing mossie nets in 50ml bottles

    Sawyers 0.49% stuff specifically for clothes, tents etc is available in 710ml bottles from the Bay of E

    5% solution available in bulk for dilution for equine use but presumably will work on fabric etc.

    I've got some 10 or 12% concentrate knocking around somewhere which I boought in the UK for proofing mossie nets.

    Useful stuff if used carefully and a lot less scary than high concentrations of DEET which melts plastics etc.

    The only place I buy it. 11.2% net treatment. Treats hammocks, nets, clothes, boots, ground cloths as required.

    Being lost is a state of mind, not a state of place.

    You can spend time, and you can spend money. Sometimes you can end up spending both, but you will never get anywhere without committing to spending at least one or the other....Sometimes money is cheaper than time.
