    * 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.zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
