Give Canadians access to permethrin-treated clothing to prevent tick bites/Lyme disease

218 Signatures Goal: 500

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

    For outdoor use: to spray on clothing (outdoors), allow to dry, then put on. My USA hunting buddies say it is very effective for both ticks and mosquitoes.

    Permethrin is safe and can protect us from zika and west nile virus.

    This is a viable alternative to DEET

    In the absence of evidence of harm, the presence of evidence of benefit, and clearly more harmful alternatives, this seems to be a "no-brainer".
