Permethrin clothing treatment is the product which simplifies insect precautions: if you are visiting anywhere in the world where you need protection from mosquitoes, ticks, or other biting insects apply permethrin to your clothes prior to travel to provide the highest degree of protection. Peremthrin treated clothing is the best-kept secret of adventure travelers. It is easy to use and safe for everyone, even babies. 

This product is very economical and serves the purpose. The clothing that are worn most can be soaked in the Permethrin liquid for a couple of hours and then kept them to dry. This will make the clothing mosquito protected for a couple of washes. 

Having clothing that are mosquito repellent treated would leave very little skin to be taken cared of while exposed to mosquitoes. People should be made aware about the virus and such home remedies to prevent themselves from getting affected.
