HEALTH HAZARDS
——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
            Acute Inhalation:    Avoid breathing mist and vapors.
            Eye Contact:     Slight irritation.
            Skin Contact:     Moderately Irritating, Harmful if Absorbed.
            Ingestion:     Harmful if ingested.
            Primary Routes of Entry:       Inhalation and skin contact.
            Systemic & Other Effects:    Unknown.
           
            Chemicals Listed as Carcinogens or Potential Carcinogens:  None Known.  Permethrin produced an increase incidence of               Lung and Liver Tumors in female mice at elevated dietary concentrations.

            COMMENTS:     EPA Tox Category:  III (caution) Emergency overview:  Health:   Harmful if absorbed through skin. Avoid               contact with face, eyes, or skin.  Avoid breathing vapors or spray mist.  Wash hands thoroughly after handling and before                eating and smoking.

EMERGENCY FIRST AID PROCEDURES
——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————              Inhalation:  Remove affected person to fresh air.  Apply artificial respiration if indicated.
            Skin:     Remove contaminated clothing and wash contaminated areas of skin with soap and water. Contact a physician if                            irritation persists.
            Eyes:    Flush eyes with plenty of water.  Contact a physician if irritation persists.
            Oral:     Contact a physician or Poison Control Center.  Get medical attention.
           
            Note to Physician:    Since this product is an aerosol, oral ingestion is unlikely, but if a small amount is ingested (or if                                             treatment is delayed), oral administration of activated charcoal and cathartic is probably sufficient                                              therapy.
