I'm confused...
Quote:
... we’ve developed an all natural tick repellent that is over 97.5% effective.
Please note, Our outdoor spray is a registered cosmetic product, meant to enhance your enjoyment of the time you spend outdoors. It is refreshing, made with safe, skin-nourishing ingredients, and smells great. Our outdoor spray is not a registered insect repellent and we do not support claims to that effect.

It seems to me that they are 100% claiming it is a repellant (albeit an arachnid repellent rather than an insect repellent). Too bad that they don't reveal what's in it, other than mentioning essential oils and making a pretty sketchy claim about the health benefits of these extracts.

We are in the midst of registering our tick repellent with Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency. We hope to make this valuable, innovative product available to the public in the coming year.

I think the "Cosmetic" product is the original lemongrass product. This is from their Facebook page:


We’ve had an overwhelming response to our latest interview on the Weather Network, and we wanted to reiterate an important clarification.

We currently sell an outdoor spray which was one of the original formulas developed by our founder, Lisa Ali Learning. After her sons became very ill due to Lyme disease, Lisa developed the sprays in an effort to come up with a safe but effective product to help fend off future tick bites. As we’ve repeatedly stated here, in interviews and on our website homepage and FAQ sections, when tested the original lemongrass spray proved to be up to 85% effective - missing the Health Canada threshold of 95% or more. SO, we went back to the drawing board and with the help of our brilliant team of researchers at Acadia we’ve been able to improve upon the original formulations to produce an all natural tick repellent that is over 97% effective. This highly effective formula is the one we are registering with federal pesticide authorities, and won’t be available for sale until that process is completed (we anticipate that happening in 2021).

Our lemongrass outdoor is registered with Health Canada as a refreshing, skin nourishing cosmetic spray, meant to enhance your enjoyment of the outdoors. It is not a registered insect repellent. If this clarification has caused you any concerns or raised further questions, please feel free to contact us directly via our FB inbox or through email at info@atlantick.ca.

A year has passed. Anyone come up with a Canadian source for the sawyer brand of permethrin?

I once read somewhere that such products (liquid permethrin marketed for humans as the end-user) are not licensed for sale in Canada. Can't put my finger on that particular source but on a related note, there was some form of review underway a few of years ago:

https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/consumer-product-safety/pesticides-pest-management/public/consultations/proposed-re-evaluation-decisions/2017/permethrin.html

The feds have a searchable database listing 702 entries for products containing permethrin. Haven't made the time to look through it yet! :D https://pesticide-registry.canada.ca/en/product-search.html

The link I posted last year is no longer valid, as TSC has rebranded to become Peavey Mart, and in so doing, broke all their links.

https://www.peaveymart.com/animal-equin ... ide/222169

They still have it in a 5% solution though.

I ordered some of this Martin's stuff a while back before ebay got complicated, but even with the astonishing fees, this jug of 10% comes out to about $110 Can shipped which is a comparable alternative to buying local I suppose.

A curious choice for a name given that loggers have not been using rivers for a long time-----jes sayun.

I've been doing a little bit of investigating and it seems to me, without a license in Ontario the best you can buy is Permethrin in 0.35%.

This I have only been able to find as Pro-Perm R.T.U. Bed Bug Spray from Walmart. I also happen to have a can of noname "creepy crawly" pesticide that has Permethrin at 0.35% that is a few years old. However when I went looking for another can at the grocery store it's active chemicals was listed as "Pyrethrin" so they have changed.

Peavymart had a few blends of Permethrin but wouldn't sell any of them to me without a license (even ready to use at 0.50%).

I was warned a few times about how toxic Permethrin is to fish and cats so exercise some care when handling and applying.

0.35% should be absolutely OK to treat your clothes.
Recommended percent of dilution is kind of guideline and anything within +100% to -50% should be OK.

That's a tough sell. 3780 mls at 0.35% / $96 shipped is almost 6x the price of ordering the concentrate from online gray-market. I'm know I'm not abusing Caribbean tax shelters or anything, so I'm clear of conscience on this small matter.

I am lucky still to have a supply of the cheap stinky stuff that was bought in the US.

I bought a can of this not long ago, it's .5% I believe. The can is large!
