Pest control applications sometimes require more skin protection than just gloves, You may need disposable coveralls to shield your body, booties to cover your shoes, or protective sleeves for your arms.

For some pest control tasks, regular work clothing provides adequate personal protection, but for others, it’s simply not enough. Furthermore, clothing may hold or absorb a toxicant, physical irritant, pathogen, or allergen, resulting in (1) a longer exposure to the hazard for the wearer, and (2) the risk of carrying the hazard to other locations, even home. Those are two things you want to avoid.
