  • Prevent-a-mite, Sawyers, Nix

    I did some ivestigating and found all the EPA numbers and ingredients off all these products.

    Prevent-a-mite:
    If anybody has any information and/or websites that include information, it would be helpful.

    Sawyers tick spray:
    Active ingredient: Permethrin 0.50%; other ingredients 99.5%
    EPA REG. # 50404-3-58188 EPA EST. # 67187-NY-1
                                                            OR 54287-FL-1

    Repel Permanone:

    note: I'm not sure if this is the same stuff and whether it would work as an alternative. But it appears to be about the same.

    Does anybody have any information on whether Repel Permanone would be a good substitute for PAM or SAWYERS based on the information that I put in the last post? Or do you suggest that I not use it. From what I've read thus far, it seems the same. But I don't want to make any ***-umtions!!! And make the same mistake I made last time.

        PAM : EPA Reg. No. : 50404-7-73617
        SAWYERS : EPA Reg No. : 50404-6-58188

          Don't worry about it, I just wanted your opinion on the stuff. I was hoping that if I could get that one, It would make things easier. I was just waiting to hear your opinion, and if you said that it was not the same and would not work, I'd order it on-line from the website. If you really want to send me one, I'll give my address to you. But I can order it on-line.

                  I use REPEL most of the time. It seems to work well for me. Keeps out the mites and I have never had any ill effects to boids, colubrids, elapids, or pit vipers. And pit vipers are actually pretty fragile. At $3 a can for my REPEL, I think I will stick to it.
