A new CDC-led study published today in the Journal of Medical Entomology suggests it might be a great time to invest in bug spray-laced clothing. The study found that clothing treated with permethrin was able to stop several species of disease-causing ticks in their tracks. Permethrin is a common household insecticide derived from a plant that attacks a variety of bugs. It's particularly useful because it's harmless to people. In recent years, as more and more people have started to be sickened by ticks and insects. That's why some companies now offer services that will treat your own clothing with permethrin or they sell pants and shirts already treated with it.
