I second what Matthew Takeda said, permethrin does not cause breakdown of fabrics. Deet (or the chemicals it is dispersed in) does. It should not be applied to nylon or polyester.
One quick question though, do I have to worry about breakdown of the clothing (or especially hammock) fibers, depending on the concentration I use?
The long discussion of permethrin was in BPL last June. Check the archives over there. Fabric breakdown shouldn't be a concern. - Matthew Takeda - the JOAT
