What type of protective gear do I need when using the carpenter ant kit #2 ?

What type of protective gear should be worn? The granules...in the advanced product...what if they are inhaled? I notice when pouring out anything powdery or granular that particles end up in the air. If you need a mask...what kind?


In most cases you can just use basic precautions such as wearing gloves or washing your hands after handling any insecticides, open the containers outdoors with the containers facing away from you and always read and follow the application instructions. People that are more sensitive (asthma, allergies...) should wear dust masks when handling the dust. We have also put together a Basic Safety Kit that comes with:Tyvek Coveralls, Goggles, N95 Masks that filter 95% of water-based aerosol particles and 95% of dust particles in the air, Pair of Nitrile Chemical resistant gloves
