Felix from Macon, Ga writes,

Can you spray Permethrin SFR directly on you and how to mix to treat your yard and dogs?


Permethrin SFR cannot be used on humans in any way but the product label does give instructions for using on dogs as a flea and tick dip.  Please refer to the product label for complete instructions.
For Lawns: Mix 0.4 - 0.8 fl oz of Permethrin in 4 to 25 gallons of water per 1000 sqft, use the higher rate for faster knockdown and increased residual control. Dense or excessive (greater than 3 inches) lawn height and arid conditions may require higher volume application rates. Repeat application if necessary.

According to the Permethrin SFR product label you will mix ¼ fl. oz. of concentrate to 1 pt. water and use 1-2 fl. oz. of dilution to spray on each animal. Spot treat back, face, legs tail and ears. If you would like to "dip" the dogs you will use ¼ fl. oz. to 1¼ gallons water and thoroughly wet the dog to the skin with sponge or rag. Let drip dry.
