Because the product is applied at very low concentrations, it is not likely to harm the health of adults, children, or pets. To help reduce possible contact with permethrin during spraying:
Whenever possible, stay indoors during spraying.
If you must go outside during spraying, wear clothing that limits skin contact with the spray.
If you come in contact with the spray, wash your skin and clothing with soap and water.
Wash any fruits and vegetables that were outside during spraying with water before storing, cooking or eating.
Some individuals are sensitive to pesticides. Persons with asthma or other respiratory conditions are encouraged to stay inside during spraying since there is a possibility that spraying could worsen these conditions.
Anyone experiencing adverse reactions to pesticides should seek medical care or call 911.
Talk to your doctor if you have major health concerns.
