I know some people harbor great distain for this product claiming it to be highly toxic however, i have been using it on my exterior camos (not my base layer) and other gear (packs, tents, etc) for years. So far no tick bites. I have watched bugs land on my tent and if they didn't jump right off, they would roll off dead. So now I am contemplating spraying my six man Alaskan Guide tent down with it. For your car camping...do you do this to your bigger tents? I realize I am getting into much buggier places when backpacking and it may not be so important in your typical lakeside driveup camp but still, why not? Is there anything better than Sawyers?
