As the year turns the corner, leaving winter behind, we’ll begin to see all the signs of warmer weather coming. Spring buds will begin to bloom, and bright greens, yellows, and pinks will start showing up everywhere.
But when the weather warms up enough for the flowers, creeping and flying insects come out of hibernation. At your home you may pay a contractor to spray, fumigate, or otherwise manage insects that may invade your space. Public places like shopping, restaurants, and parks may also have treated their property. At your home, you know what precautions you need to take to avoid exposure to pesticides.
But if you or a loved one comes into contact with a poison when you’re not expecting it, without protection, the effects can be harmful!
It’s Meant to Poison Insects, What Can It Do To Me?
Insecticides can actually be very harmful to humans, depending on how the contact happens. If you unknowingly walk through an area that has recently been sprayed, inhaling the fumigant can cause severe asthma and bronchitis like symptoms. Coming in immediate contact to your skin could give you a rash, or chemical burns; if it’s on your hands, and you rub your eyes, it could even cause blindness.
