Proven Insect Repellents include: DEET, Picaridin, or Lemon Eucalyptus Oil ONLY.

DEET concentration should be 10 to 30%.

DEET should not be applied to children less than 2 months old.

Combination sunscreens with insect repellents are not recommended.

Insect repellents should not be applied to children's hands or directly to their faces - apply small amounts to your hands first and then rub onto the child's face avoiding the eyes, mouth and nostrils.

Wash hands well after applying insect repellents.
