    Not sure if you have a Wal Mart near you but the Equate brand Bedding spray has the same ingredients and works wonderfully.
    It's usually around $5 or $6.
    I've used it when I had an out break years ago and a couple times a year I do preventitive so I never have to go through the headache again.

    Good luck.

    Hey Mike, is that bedding spray? I thought it was like a spray for head lice?

    It is for head lice-- the bedding spray is used for mattresses or your car--- things you can't fit in a washing machine.

    this is great info for the non-millionaires on here !
    thanx for sharing bro, it's what our forum is all about.
    forty bucks a can seems like a substantial beating, hope phunky saw this in time.
    good luck phunky,

    Just a word of caution, while the dilution factor of permethrin in both PAM and Equate are the same, they ARE NOT the same product. The inactive chemicals are not the same. The manufacturing process is not the same, nor are the chemical reactions created while mfg of this chemical compound the same. While the other ingredients are classed as inactive, this doesn't mean it is or is not safe for use w/ reptiles.

    I can understand trying to save a buck here or there, but with the time, energy and passion I have for my collection - I am just not willing to take a chance and play chemistry lab with harsh chemicals not intended for use w/ reptiles.

    PAM is to easy to get to be experimenting, esp when animals lives are stake.

    The Bean Farm -- Black Knight -- $24/can -- works best -- lasts forever -- spray everything -- no need to skinch on the health of your animals.

    I thought the ingredients were identical on both products? I've never used the Equate and only use PAM as a preventative in Quarantine. But I've seen threads about this stuff in the past and was told the ingredients on the side of the can are identical.

    The listed ingredients are the same, but with items like PAM and Equate, they don't have to list all of the ingredients (and don't). The inactive ingredients aren't listed - and they make up approx 95% of the compounds. This is were the difference is, and the unknown is a bit scary sometimes.

    I am not saying equate won't do the trick, just that it is not the same thing, nor is it intended for use w/ reptiles. With that in mind, I am not going to risk it.
