  • Insect repellents are available in various forms and concentrations. Aerosol and spray products are intended for skin applications as well as for treating clothing. Liquid, cream, lotion, spray, and stick products enable direct skin application. Products with a low concentration of the active ingredient may be appropriate for situations where exposure to insects is minimal. A higher concentration of the active ingredient may be useful in highly infested areas, or with insect species that are more difficult to repel. And where appropriate, consider nonchemical ways to deter biting insects—screens, netting, long sleeves, and slacks.


Emphasis

  • Insect repellents are available in various forms and concentrations. Liquid, cream, lotion, spray, and stick products enable direct skin application; you may also use spray products for treating clothing. In highly infested areas or for insects that are harder to repel, use a repellent with a high concentration. In areas where exposure to insects is minimal use a repellant with a low concentration. Where appropriate, consider nonchemical ways such as screens, netting, long sleeves, and slacks to prevent biting insects.


Emphasis

  • The EPA recommends the following precautions when using insect repellents. Repellents should be applied only to exposed skin and/or clothing (as directed on the product label). Do not use under clothing. Repellents should not be applied over cuts, wounds, or irritated skin. When using sprays, do not spray directly onto the face; spray your hands and then apply to your face. Don’t apply to eyes and mouth, and apply sparingly around ears. This products should not be handled by children, and do not apply to children’s hands. 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. Heaving application and saturation is unnecessary for effectiveness; if biting insects do not respond to a thin film of repellent, apply a bit more.

  • The EPA recommends the following precautions when using insect repellents and sprays. Use just enough repellent to cover your exposed skin and/or your clothing (as directed on the product label). To prevent breathing in a repellent, spray your hands before rubbing on face. Avoid applying repellents to eyes, mouth, wounds, or irritated skin, while using little around ears. Spray in well-ventilated areas that are away from food. Apply products for children with the exception of their hands. If biting continues, sparingly apply more.
