Bulk instructions for a less wasteful Picaridin spray use:

Question: Is it possible to buy a refill for the spray bottle? I do not want to throw the pump in the trash for each bottle I order. Great product

If your going to use multiple bottles of permethrine...this is what i did. I bought a bottle of permethrine 36.8%, sometimes called "permethrine SFR". Then I got a one gallon lawn and garden sprayer. The are about $10 dollars . The just dilute the permethrine to the .5% strength like the sawyer's is. That is half of one percent. Dilute as follows. 1 gallon of water gets 2 ounces of 36.8% permethrine to give you .5% . Sooo much cheaper this way. And your right why buy and throw out all those plastic bottles, Permethrine SFR is available on Amazon. The bottle have a ounce measuring thing built in. Make gallons of the stuff for so little money...Or of course you could buy the 10% permethrine and just dilute that to .5% to make a little less. Or dilute the SFR to 1%...that lasts longer on clothes. Just use 4 ounces of SFR in one gallon (my preference) I treat everything I wear from the waist down, socks and shoes, pants shorts. My wife's clothes too. Hope that helps. see less  By Scott 1953 on May 9, 2014
