Sourced from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (see the link below), along with a silhouette of a mosquito and a tick, this Repellency Awareness Graphic tell viewers to “Avoid Bites”, “Apply Correctly”, as it refers to insect repellants. It also states that a Mosquito repellant, “Repels 4HRS.”, while a Tick repellant, “Repels 6HRS.”. To use this, as well as two additional versions of this graphic, see the EPA’s page linked below, in order to first read the “Guidance Document”, and if need be, follow the included, “Contact Us” link.
Additional Information:
“EPA is allowing companies to apply for permission to include the new repellency awareness graphic on product labels of skin-applied insect repellents. This graphic is intended to help consumers easily identify the repellency time for mosquitos and ticks. Use of the graphic by manufacturers will be voluntary and available for qualifying companies. EPA will review products that apply to use the graphic to ensure that their scientific data meet current testing protocols and standard evaluation practices.” For more information on insect repellant usage, see the links below.
