Mosquito Bite prevention

When using repellent with DEET, follow these recommendations: • Read and follow all directions and precautions on the product label. • Store DEET out of reach of children. • To apply to face, first spray product onto hands, then rub onto face.. • Use only when outdoors and wash skin with soap and water after coming indoors. • Higher concentrations of DEET may have a longer repellent effect, however, concentrations over 50% provide no added protection. • Use just enough repellent to cover exposed skin and/or clothing. Avoid over-application of the product. • DEET may be used on adults, children, and infants older than 2 months of age. Protect infants from mosquito bites by using a carrier draped with mosquito netting with an elastic edge for a tight fit. Be safe with DEET : • Do not allow children under 10 years of age to apply repellent themselves. • Do not apply to young children’s hands or around eyes and mouth. • Do not breathe in, swallow, or get into the eyes (DEET is toxic if swallowed.) • Do not put repellent on wounds or broken skin.
