Looking for a permethrin powder to mix with water and spray on clothes

There are lots of pre-mixed liquid permethrin sprays, but I'm looking for a powder that I can easily travel with and store over a long period -- does it exist?


There is not any insecticide that is labeled to be applied on any type of clothing. We recommend taking a look at the Bed Bug Travel Kits & Products Page for products that are great to travel with. You can also look at using Steri-fab for a contact kill that does not leave a residual. Sterifab is to be applied to mattress, cushions, comforters, bedding, suitcases, sofas, couches, curtains, ets. Heat treatments of 140-180 degrees with your home dryer are best for treating clothing items. Place items in the dryer on a high heat for 45 minutes to ensure any insect and/or its eggs will be killed. You may do this daily or weekly.
