   Hi  all,
            I can confirm Ron Orenstein's experience with permethrin as a a
leech repellent, as well as for mosquitoes. Neither will survive on fabric
soaked in permethrin then dried, and it lasts several washes. Minimally
toxic to humans, occassional skin irritation if the solution touches skin.
This is what paediatricians use for lice in childrens hair.
