Besides using on clothing permethrin apparently works well on all your packs gear bags including food bags wear it’s claimed bears and other varmints are also repelled by taste or odour. Going to give it a try as soon as I get a source.

Not sure about its effectiveness as a bear repellent but we've been spraying our tent fly and our tarp with it for the past few years. We think it has a halo effect around the tent area; we notice less bug activity than before.

Question for any cat owners who use permethrin here...

I understand that permethrin is extremely toxic to cats. My wife works as a veterinary assistant and she's seen a couple of horror stories. In one case someone washed clothing home-treated with permethrin, and after drying that load, the cat sat on the dry laundry for a while - and got very, very sick.

So if I were to use it on clothing, it would be treated outside, left outside, and packed outside before going into the car. Then, laundered on the road home somewhere, probably twice.

I haven't actually asked a vet about it yet, but we do have a cat, and I'm worried that permethrin might not be such a good idea on clothing. Tents wouldn't be an issue, but clothing very well might be. Can anyone speak to that?
