Description:Caption:
This image depicts someone spraying permethrin in an outdoor setting. Permethrin can be used to treat clothing and gear to repel mosquitoes that carry Zika virus. The best way to prevent Zika is to protect yourself from mosquito bites. Always follow the product label instructions.
Additional Information:
“Zika is spread primarily by the bite of Aedes species mosquitoes (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). In addition to using permethrin, CDC recommends using EPA-registered insect repellents and wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants to avoid mosquito bites.”
