Appropriately used, permethrin-treated clothing is a key tool and a safe tool for preventing bites from ticks carrying lyme disease, especially in children. The ticks and the disease are on the move and children playing in nature are the most vulnerable. In Canada, we do not have access to permethrin products for spraying clothing, or permethrin-treated clothing because such uses have not been approved by our federal Pesticide Management Regulatory Agency. Please support this effort to put pressure on politicians and health officials to give us access to these products. View More Info about this topic at: www.versicolor.ca/noticks
