Quoted from an article from the University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension in Lancaster County: "Several years ago, the Environmental Protection Agency issued some precautions regarding the use of DEET repellents, due to some reported adverse effects on young children. In a consumer bulletin entitled, "Using Insect Repellents Safely," the agency stated, "While doctors have not confirmed DEET as the cause of reactions such as headache, mood changes (crying, irritability), confusion, nausea and, in severe cases, muscle spasms, convulsions or unconsciousness, EPA is concerned that a small segment of the population may be sensitive to DEET." They indicated that overuses of DEET repellents may have resulted due to public concern over tick-related diseases, such as Lyme Disease. Also, many of the adverse reactions reported appeared to have involved accidental exposure, such as swallowing or spraying into the eye."
Using a product such as our Bye Bye Bugs Solid Stick on small children over the age of three will prevent such accidental spraying. We also have a Bye Bye Bugs Spray, however, for adults who work and/or play outdoors and may not want to apply the Bye Bye Bugs Solid Stick after they've been perspiring.
