A reminder of why we should avoid bug sprays if possible and opt for insect screens instead (if at all possible) to protect our families has emerged in the Barkly Region.
A can of insect repellent exploded on a man while he was using it. The man suffered burns to his hands and face as a result.
The area is popular among travelers and remote. A plane had to be arranged for the man and he was flown to Alice Springs where he was treated for the burns.
