Fakahatchee Warnings and Dangers
* Apply repellents only to exposed skin and/or clothing (as
directed on the product label). Do not use under clothing.
* Never use repellents over cuts, wounds, or irritated skin.
* Do not apply to eyes and mouth, and apply sparingly around
ears. When using sprays do not spray directly onto face;
spray on hands first and then apply to face.
* Do not allow children to handle the products, and do not
apply to children's hands. When using on children, apply to
your own hands and then put it on the child.
* Do not spray in enclosed areas. Avoid breathing a repellent
spray, and do not use it near food.
* Use just enough repellent to cover exposed skin and/or
clothing. Heavy application and saturation is generally
unnecessary for effectiveness; if biting insects do not
respond to a thin film of repellent, then apply a bit more.
* After returning indoors, wash treated skin with soap and
water or bathe. This is particularly important when
repellents are used repeatedly in a day or on consecutive
days. Also, wash treated clothing before wearing it again.
If you suspect that you or your child are reacting to an insect
repellent, discontinue use, wash treated skin, and then call
your local poison control center. If/when you go to a doctor,
take the repellent with you.
* Get specific medical information about the active
ingredients in repellents and other pesticides by calling the
National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC) at
1-800-858-7378. NPIC operates from 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
(Pacific Time),9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Time), 7 days a week.zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzRelated to:
