Yes, but we suggest discussing the ingredients listed on the label with your physician, as they know your children’s medical history best and can provide valuable guidance. Adult supervision is required when applying to children. Because children often put their hands in their mouths, do not apply Kite Shield to children’s hands. Read and follow the label instructions carefully.
Kite Shield has not been tested for compatibility with all types of fabric. Before using Kite Shield on your clothing, test it on a small inconspicuous area to ensure that the fabric will not be stained by the natural, botanical oils in the formulation. For areas where mosquito infestations are extreme, consider applying Kite Shield to your skin and wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants to increase your protection.
Kite Shield has not been registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It qualifies for exemption from registration under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
Kite Shield’s patent-pending formula works by targeting mosquitoes’ sensing receptors - the part of the insect that guides them towards a food source. Our synergistic blend of botanical active ingredients confuses the receptors and creates a barrier on the skin.
Mosquito species within each genus are relatively closely related to one another, so Kite Shield may be effective against other species as well. We just don't have supporting efficacy nor duration data because we cannot practically test against all species. Note that our efficacy data is against the three most common species that mosquito repellents are tested against.
No, re-apply as needed and ensure skin is completely dry before application. The product may cause skin irritation or allergic reaction in some individuals, and if your pores are open from sweating, showering or other activity, it may be even more sensitive to irritation. Also note that some parts of your body may be more sensitive to irritation than others.
