Don't Use Wasp Spray for Self Defense!

It was brought to our attention while Tweeting, that many people have been using wasp spray as an alternative to pepper spray, for personal or self defense. This is a very dangerous idea! Wasp spray is a poisonous product and it has not been tested on humans. All insecticides are forced by the government to include in their labels, "It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling". Wasp spray contains a poison called Pyrethrin. Poisons can damage or hurt a person permanently or even worse, kill them! Pepper spray has only a temporary effect on a person. Think about it, would you rather eat a hot pepper or poison?

Never spray a person with wasp spray in self defense, or any other poisonous substance! Use pepper spray instead.
