Tick and Mosquito proof your Class A and B uniforms.

Something to consider - Boys Scouts spend a lot of time outdoors where all the mosquitoes and ticks are.  Insect Shield offers a service where you can send your personal clothes to them and they will treat them with permethrin and that will kill tick and mosquitos.  You can send the Class B t-shirts and the Class A uniform and treat them with permethrin to help prevent Lyme disease and mosquito-borne illnesses.  There are other methods of doing this as well.  You can also purchase socks, as well as other clothes that are pre-treated.  Click on the link for more information.  (please note, this is just something my family is interested in and we are sharing the information).  Insect Shield
