Please be sure to read the product label of any insecticide you choose to use to get information on the personal protective safety gear you will need.

In areas where ventilation is poor, a manufacturer may recommend you wear a mask or a respirator. We have put together two different safety kits that will make selecting the correct safety gear easier for you.
