How did you guess that? A lot new tech gets by me, my GPS is a 1996 Garmin so more time to get out the woods is sometimes necessary.

GameHide clothing is treated with Pyrethrins an extract from chrysanthemum flowers which according to the FDA may cause wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath,difficulty breathing and chest pain. Pyrethrins are more effective for mosquito control and is the active ingredient used for Thermacells and most mosquito foggers. ThermaCells are really just miniature foggers.
Permethrin is an odorless man made chemical, the FDA has found in rare cases it has caused some minor skin irritations usually only if clothing is worn too soon after application. Permethrin is the most effective tick, chigger, spider and beetle repellent/killer.
Permethrin is deadly to cats, so if you have a cat you care about keep this stuff away from them. My neighbor's trail cam got a series of cougar (as in mountain loin) pictures last week. We are not at all happy about a cougar in the area it is going to make walking through the corn an adventure. Perhaps permethrin will kill it or at least repel it?
