Can I use cypermethrin as clothing repellent?
Williamson County Tennessee
I am not aware of any products labeled for that use with cypermethrin as the active ingredient. There are several products containing permethrin that work very well. Also consider product containing deet.
H2O is water and
H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide. Both have an H (hydrogen) and O (oxygen). So as you can see they look very similar but they react very different. And below is the chemical make up of cypermethrin and permethrin. The structures are turned differently therefore they would react differently to the active sites they attach to.
From discussions with individuals who have come in contact with cypermethrin, they have indicated it has a harsh burning sensation to the skin. Also, Federal regulations do not allow products to be used in a manner not consistent with labeling. Follow all label instructions prior to use.
